    More than registery problem .. probably !

    Hi all,

    I don't know how it happened .. but I ended up deleting every thing in LSP using LSPfix !

    I hadn't realized that I'd chosen everything until I clicked (finish) !!

    On top of this .. some problem on my machine WinNt4 prevent me from re-installing the TCP/IP or the NetworkCommunication stuff using the control panel ...


    This is the part concern my problem from (StartupList) ...

    Here, this is BEFORE the problem :
    -----------------------------------------------
    Enumerating Winsock LSP files:

    NameSpace #1: C:\WINNT\System32\rnr20.dll
    Protocol #1: C:\WINNT\System32\lspak.dll
    Protocol #2: C:\WINNT\System32\lspak.dll
    Protocol #3: C:\WINNT\System32\lspak.dll
    Protocol #4: C:\WINNT\system32\msafd.dll
    Protocol #5: C:\WINNT\system32\msafd.dll
    Protocol #6: C:\WINNT\system32\msafd.dll
    Protocol #7: C:\WINNT\system32\msafd.dll
    Protocol #8: C:\WINNT\system32\msafd.dll
    Protocol #9: C:\WINNT\System32\lspak.dll
    -----------------------------------------------

    And here AFTER the problem occured :

    -----------------------------------------------
    Enumerating Winsock LSP files:

    Protocol #1: C:\WINNT\system32\msafd.dll
    Protocol #2: C:\WINNT\system32\msafd.dll
    -----------------------------------------------

    Now, I've deleted every thing usin LSPFix.exe .. and I can't re-install normally .. I've lost my internet access !

    How can I return those things to how they were before ?

    My idea and question is ...
    Will getting those dll files original values & locations in the registery from another WinNt user solve this problem ??

    If so .. Could anyone please provide me with the necessory entries ...
    If not .. Does anyone have any idea how to solve this thing ...


    I would be grateful for any help ...
    Thanks in advance ...

    Even tho the below MSKB article references XP and Server 2003....I suggest you follow the part close to the end of the article dealing with....How to Recover from Winsock2 corruption.

Before you modify the registry, make sure to back it up and make sure that you understand how to restore the registry if a problem occurs.

    dear mysubs, re-installing TCP/IP should do the trick so please explain what problem you're having with re-installing? i don't have NT so i can't help you. but with same version, identical registry entries and DLLs will help solve the problem.

    To resolve this issue, delete the corrupted registry keys, and then reinstall the TCP/IP protocol.

    Step 1: Delete the corrupted registry keys

    1. Click Start, and then click Run.

    2. In the Open box, type regedit, and then click OK.

    3. In Registry Editor, locate the following keys, right-click each key, and then click Delete:

    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\System\CurrentControlSet\Services\Winsock

    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\System\CurrentControlSet\Services\Winsock2

    4. When you are prompted to confirm the deletion, click Yes.

    Note Restart the computer after you delete the Winsock keys. Doing so causes the Windows XP operating system to create new shell entries for those two keys. If you do not restart the computer after you delete the Winsock keys, the next step does not work correctly.

    Step 2: Install TCP/IP

    1. Right-click the network connection, and then click Properties.

    2. Click Install.

    3. Click Protocol, and then click Add.

    4. Click Have Disk.

    5. Type C:\Windows\inf, and then click OK.

    6. On the list of available protocols, click Internet Protocol (TCP/IP), and then click OK.

    Restart the computer.


    This has worked like a treat for me every time so far...

    Let us know how you go...

    Cheers :D

    Thanks all ..

    Blackspear .. this is the first thing I've tried ;)

    Now .. about AMRX question .. the problem is that whatever un-installing method you use .. you just can't remove the TCP/IP from the network panel ..

    I was able to get the entries from somebody .. and everything went all right .. :)

    but still .. if anyone has some idea about the reason for this .. he is more than welcome :) ..

    and since .. we are here :cool: ..
    at one stage I wanted to try some manipulating from dos .. but I couldn't find a way .... :
    Is there any free tool allow you to delete single file off ntfs partition from outside the Windows system ?

    To my best knowledge .. you can do this by a series of complicated steps including re-partition .......................

    but if there's a free tool or program out there .. that will be helpful for many !

    Cheeeeeeeeeeeeeers and thanx again ;)

    One option is to install and use the Recovery Console (How to install and use the Recovery Console in Windows XP). If the file you want to delete is outside of your system directory, then you will have to enable the "set" command (How to add more power to Recovery Console by using Group Policy in Windows XP Professional). You will then be able to use "set AllowAllPaths = TRUE" and delete any file on the partition. You should disable the "set" command when you're finished.
