First off try this. Open notepad (Start - All Programs - Accessories - Notepad) and type the following

@echo off

ipconfig /flushdns
netsh int ip reset
netsh winsock reset
netsh firewall reset
shutdown -r -t 0

This file will automatically restart your computer. If this fails goto the next step below. Also please note insert your original Windows XP CD before proceeding. This must be Service Pack 2 or above.

  • Click Start - Run - Type: cmd - Press Enter
  • Type expand D:\i386\tcpip.sy_ C:\WINDOWS\system32\drivers\tcpip.sys (please note a space is needed after tcpip.sys_ and C:\)
  • Type ‘Exit’ to close the Command Prompt.
  • Reboot your computer and start normally
