    Hello,
    First of all I am using Win95 and had a problem a few days ago with a ndis.vxd file. That has been fixed, couldnt tell you what I did to fix it because I did alot of things, and could not get back to this page to tell anyone, so had to register under a new user name. I kept getting caught in the sign in screen loop??? However, my new problem is I can not connect to the internet on my other comp. The problem started when I deleted some files,etc. I could go onto aol but couldnt go anywhere else basically. After reading many threads for many hours I did alot of different things, and now my computer dials the access number and it says it connects at such and such speed and hangs while on the talking to network screen. I have tried the ping and the first set say failed. I uninstalling the communication and re installed them and I am at total loss. Any suggestions???? I have deleted temp folder in dos, etc.

    My version of internet explorer is 5.5 and I tried repairing that also. To no avail.

    Try this:
    To resolve this behavior, follow these steps:

    Click Start, point to Programs, and then click MS-DOS Prompt.

    At the command prompt, type the following commands, pressing ENTER after each command:
    cd\windows\ws2bakup
    ws2bakup.bat
    exit
    where windows is the folder in which Windows is installed. NOTE: If you are prompted to abort, retry, or fail the operation, press A. This causes the Ws2bakup.bat to continue restoring up all the necessary files. NOTE: If you receive sharing violation error messages when you run the Ws2bakup.bat file, continue with step 3.

    Click Start, click Shut Down, click "Restart in MS-DOS mode," and then click OK.

    Repeat step 2.
    NOTE: If you receive error messages when you run the Ws2bakup.bat file stating that some programs cannot be run outside of Windows 95, disregard them.

    Thank you very much!!!! It worked like a charm. I had tried this before and had to abort about 5 times and continued but it did not work, but now it does. I am amazed and very grateful. Thank you again and again.
