Thread: Help!

  1. #1
    Hi, i've been having computer troubles lately,
    I'm not sure if this is a virus or not.

    Lately, when i log on to my computer.
    I get an error message saying
    "TCP/IP network transport not installed"
    The title of the message was:
    "Mobile Device Properties"

    I have not been able to access the internet since i
    first received this message. (I'm postingn this
    from another computer)

    Some details:
    I'm running win 2000 pro
    I have a firewall (norton)
    I have a virus scanner (norton)
    internet via LAN at my home. (cable)
    I dont believe i have run any executable files that i have downloaded
    recently
    This error just suddenly appeared

    Ways I have attempted to solve this:
    -Restart (duh)
    -Reinstall tcp/ip protocol for my network adapter
    -Windows troubleshooter
    -Scan for viruses with latest definitions from norton

    Stuff I found out:
    -My Ip address and subnet mask changed from what it usually is.
    -I dont have a default gateway
    -My Aston shell messed up b4 i had these problems.
    -The error message wasn't found in the Windows help archive of error messages
    -Each time i got this error, it wasnt recorded in Computer management> Event Viewer>System.

    Anybody noe what's wrong? Can anybody help me?

    Any help wud be much appreciated.

    When i said i reinstalled tcp/ip protocol i meant:
    Control panel > Net/dialup connections> properties of my network connection > uninstall tcp/ip protocol > restart> insntall tcp/ip protocol

    I assume you used add/remove windows components in control panel - add/remove programs to uninstall, then reinstall networking?  If you haven't yet, run command prompt and c:>ipconfig /all  -    c:>ipconfig /flushdns  -    c:>ipconfig /renew  . Run a full checkdisk as well when ipconfig is done.  c:>chkdsk /x /f /r  or just  c:>chkdsk /r  to recover any bad sectors.
    i got this error when trying to renew:
    The following occurred when renewing adapter : An operaton was attempted on something that is not a socket.
    What is this?
