I just did a search for the file you gave me (nettcip.*) and there is no such thing anywhere on the net..

What can't you do now that you could do before??

Unless, of course, these are specific to Comcast and were removed for a reason!!

The missing files are: nettcpip.pnf, nettcpip and several other net files that reside in the hidden INF folder in Windows

Go into System>Advanced and put a check beside "Show hidden files and folders"..

Now, go to Start>Run and type in sfc /scannow and press <enter> Have your XP cd handy!!

I ran sfc /scannow. It did not help. I just saved my data to an external drive and reformatted and reinstalled XP.
Thanks for you help :tazz:
