I've read several old threads relating to TCP/IP query failed messages. None solved my problem.
I "caught" the XP Security 2012 malware/virus and in removing it, I appear to have messed up the registry on my old Gateway laptop -- specifically something to do with the local area connection (Intel Pro/1000 MT). All other functions, hardware and software are operating correctly (I believe). Only the internet connection has been impacted. The wifi on this computer hasn't worked for years, so I have to repair the local connection.
I have uninstalled the card and reinstalled. I have tried netsh commands to reset. I've tried the winsock fix. I've tried IP config commands.
I'm at my wits end. I figure it is time to reformat -- but thought I'd ask and see if anyone has come up with a new approach.
I have tried every trick on this thread:
XP Sp3 by the way.
None of those helped.
I'm pretty competent fixing most problems, but this one has me totally stumped.
Thanks in advance for any help that you can provide.
