    Didn't install anything new but get a meesage on start up about "Cannot load NDIS - Protection Fualt - Restart Windows"

    I know its a networking issue, I have uninstalled my modem and Net work card. Reinstalled modem and no longer need the network card so left it out.

    I uninstalled the MS Dialup adapter and can start the copmuter fine, but obviously the modem won't connect to anything.

    When I re-install the MS Dialup Adapter and reboot I get the Protection fault and can only get into safe mode to uninstall the dialup adapter.

    Anyone with some advice would be appreciated.
