Networking Files
« on: October 12, 2011, 09:16:19 PM »
I have issues with two computers lately that something is affecting the networking files.
I end up with Invalid IP error 0.0.0.0 for address.  WinSockFix is no help.
I can start the services of DHCP or TCPIP.  In the Device Mgr/Hidden Items  AFD.sys and TCPIP shows started but NETBT.sys is MISSING.
I have tried everything to replace the files in windows/system32/drivers and Netbt still does not show up and i can't start the two services (all others are ok)

Lets see if we can get this fixed, and if possible add the fix my Windows repair tool :-)

Can you post any screen shots of any error messages?

:-(  I finally had to format and reinstall XP to get the system back to the customer.
But i did write this down...

When Starting the services of DHCP or TCPIP:
Could not start the "DHCP" Client Service on Local Computer
Error 1075:  The depenency service does not exist or has been marked for deletion.

And if i ran:
Start
CMD
IPCONFIG /Renew
Error:  The RPC Server is Unavailable


I hope this helps

Missing reg keys.
Reinstall was your best option :wink:

While I want to add as many repairs as possible to my repair program I have to stay away from it adding reg keys. To many differences in peoples systems. And you go changing reg keys and your asking from trouble :-)

I own and run a computer repair business as well, so since your a fellow tech feel free to hit me up on anything you need. The more ideas I get the more I can add to my program :-D

I wonder if I should create a section where the services reg keys for each version of windows might be helpful?

hmm, not sure what reg keys would be of use at the moment.
I generally dont "add" any, i delete ones from virus/malware.

I use "dial a fix" alot for XP, but they never made one for Vista/7 systems.

It usually cures all my networking and update issues, but what ever affected these two systems
no matter what i did could get any network to log on.

If i come up with something to add i will let ya know.

I've used the "unhide" non system files a few times that you have and it works great.

Thanks for all the hard work.

I made the unhide feature because a few of my customers got a virus that hid every file on the drive. So I made that :-)

There are a few tricks to getting the network to work correctly again, I have had to do them on a few machines. It is basically uninstalling the network card, then going through the reg and removing all traces of it. Then after a reboot Windows should put everything back.

Wish I still had how I did it handy, it was a while ago.
