    I have been having issues with internet for about a week. Cable company says I have a good signal and I have recyled power feels like a hundred times.

    I went to install TCP/IP Protocol and I received this error message:

    "specified path does not contain any applicable device INFs"

    Please help :(

    Sounds like your O/S installation may be corrupted. Have you considered trying a repair installation?

    All you do is boot from the CD. When it asks if you want to repair and to press "R", don't. Continue with the installation just like you were installing for the first time.

    You will then get a license agreement and it will ask you to press F8 to agree. Right after that screen, you will see a list of Windows installations that setup found. It will ask if you want to repair it. Read the directions on that page!!!

    Then, you will actually press "R" this time and XP will re-install.

    When done, you will be back to your familiar desktop with everything looking just like it did before. But all your Windows Updates are gone and you will need to get those again.
