    System:eMachineT2080,AMD 2000+,512,80,XPHome,no service packs.
    Scenario:System takes a long time to boot (5-8 min) and unable to install Netgear wg111t usb wireless nic. Onboard nic ok, internet access ok.
    Repair so far:Cleared temps and cache, turned off System Restore, shut down unnecessary apps (msconfig), Installed and ran MSAntispy (2 found & cleaned). Noticed Both Norton Systemworks 2003 and McAfee (virus scan & pers firewall)2002 were installed so removed both McAfee. Scanned with Norton:clean. Installed SP2.System now boots immediately.
    Dilema:Local area connection properties shows only "client for Microsoft networks". When I try to install additional protocals or services I get an error : "Could not add the requested component. The error is:The system cannot find the file specified." Any ideas?
