Strange networking problems

Hi All

I have powered up my Vista Business machine this morning and there are some strange problems with my network adaptors.

My wired NIC is sitting at Code 31 "cannot load drivers for this device"

No matter what I do, uninstall / reinstall I cannot get this device to start.

So I reverted to my wireless NIC and this gets even stranger.

When I go to the properties of my wifi NIC there is NO TCP / IP v4 listed in properties. When I try to install this protocol I get the error "Could not add this feature - The system cannot find the file specified"

However the internet works and I can view tcp/ip settings via ipconfig.

Anyone ever seen or heard or this?
