Now there is no network activity at all. I have replaced the tcpip.sys file with ones from working systems as well as from an XP Pro CD but still getting error message stating: "Failed to query TCP/IP settings of the connection. Cannot proceed." whenever I try to repair the network connections for the computer. I am showing no IP address and IP config will not work either. I get the error: "An internal error occurred: The request is not supported. Additional information: Unable to query host name."
I have used some suggestions I found online such as "ipfix", "winsockFix", as well as using a Microsoft autofix exe to reset the TCPIP settings.
I am still stuck with the same error after all of that. I have run Malwarebytes to check for anything else that might be around on the system but its coming up clean. Anyone have any ideas or suggestions? I would greatly appreciate it. Thank you.
