Download the attached file. Save it then move it to the sick PC and right click and Extract all. Right click on the ndiswan.reg file and MERGE. Does that work?

says could not add the requested component. the error is:an extended error has occurred

also i have two network connections,

local area connection 7 (not 2)
realtek family fast ethernet

and

1392 connection 2
1394 net adapter

both say connected

i tried "repair this connection on local but it says failed to query tcp/ip setting of the connection. cannot proceed.

should i delete this connection and create a new connection? would that help at all?

It might. No telling since nothing else is working like it should.

Any chance you could find an XP SP3 CD so we could do a repair install?

Though I had replied to this. Sorry.

Either you have one or you borrow one from a friend. A repair install does not delete your data but it may mess up some installed programs. Doesn't sound like that is going to be an option.

Download and Save the attached file. Right click on it and Extract All. For each .reg file, right click on it and Merge.

This replaces most of the services used by tcpip. Unfortunately replacing the tcpip service is a bit harder since each is customized to your hardware. Let's look and see if you have anything in tcpip now.

Start, Run, cmd, OK then type:
reg  export  HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\services\Tcpip  "%userprofile%\Desktop\tcpip.txt"

This should create a file on your desktop. Please attach it to your next post.

Attached is a file newtcp.zip. Download, Save it and then right click on it and Extract All. Transfer the newtcp.inf file to the sick PC then right click on it and Install. Do you get the same error or a different one or does it actually install without error?

IF it appears to do anything then:

Start, Run, cmd, OK then type:

reg  export  HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\services\Tcpip  "%userprofile%\Desktop\newtcpip.txt"



This should create a file on your desktop. Please attach it to your next post.

Did you get any errors when you Install'd the .inf file?

I think the next thing to try is to export the tcpip from my old XP PC and merge them with yours then try and modify them to make them work. Going to have to wait until tomorrow tho.

I've seen malware that will do that. Do a search for files with the date it happened, include system and hidden files. They will probably all have the same time within about 5 minutes. Delete them all.
