I'm having a problem connecting to the internet. When I run IPCONFIG I come up with an error saying "internal error occured the request is not supported cannot run IPCONFIG" TCP/IP is installed on my machine but, im not getting any DHCP address. Everything under TCP/IP properties is set for automatic. I thought that it might be the NIC but, when I test it threw a dial-up connection I run into a similar problem. I ran netsh to reset TCP/IP and rebooted my pc but still the same errors. I have Nortan Internet security but, I disabled automatic protection and disabled the firewall on Nortan. i just upgraded from Windows 98 to XP a couple of weeks ago but, the problems just started the other night, up until then it was working fine. I havent run an Anti-virius scan yet, I did run Microsofts anti-spyware and it found a few things but, Im still having the same problems. I also downloaded and ran Lspfix.exe and winsockxpfix.exe but neither helped. My next step is to boot from the XP cd and try to repair XP also I thought about just throwing another NIC in there just to try but, I really think that it's TCP/IP and not hardware..

please help
