    Motherboard = Intel D845GVSR, I think.
    That's from the label on the motherboard.

    The computer had malware A360, which I removed.

    NAV 2007, expired had been on the computer. It was not running, & the subscription had expired, so I downloaded the Norton Removal Tool using the PC in question, uninstalled it, then ran NRT.

    Now, no internet.

    That which I have tried.
    Turned off XP's FW; looked for 3rd party FWs, found none.

    Verified that the NIC is in Dev Mgr, with no bangs.
    Verified that tcp/ ip in in Dev Mgr, no bangs.
    Verified that the service, DHCP is automatic & started in services.msc
    Checked event viewer for errors; none noted, Applications and System
    from cmd prompt, when I run: ipconfig /all OR ipconfig /release,
    the result is Windows IP Configuration

    In network connections, LAN, connected
    There are only 2 items:
    Client for Microsoft Networks
    Symantec Network Security Intermediate Filter Driver
    When I try to install or uninstall anything. When trying to install, I am informed:
    "could not add the requested component. The error is: the system could not find the file specified"

    In the system try, I am informed that a connection exists, at 100 MBPS.

    I have run: netsh int ip reset resetlog.txt 3 x. After each run, I have rebooted.

    I have run netsh winsock reset ; then rebooted
    Ran netsh int ip reset resetlog.txt afterwards.

    I tried to install NetDiag, but received an error while installing:
    Error 1904 Module c:\program files\support tools\sidwkr.dll failed to register
    H Result -2147221164

    netdiag /test:winsock
    results in: "Failed to get information for a network adapter. The error occurred was: the pipe is being closed
    <232>[Fatal] cannot find tcp/ip configuration from the registry

    After uninstalling the onboard NIC, I have been unable to install the drivers, Intel PRO 10/100 chipset.

    Also, I am unable to install drivers for a PCI NIC, with a RealTek chipset.

    I have no idea how many problems you have, but certainly the first thing is to get rid of "Symantec Network Security Intermediate Filter Driver." Try unchecking it in the connection properties and then run the Norton Removal Tool again.

    Then, maybe the second thing is to get Internet Protocol (TCP/IP) installed in the connection properties.

    Or, to save time, you could format the disk and install Windows fresh. :)

    Dear TN:
    No matter which Item in Network properties I check, than click uninstall, the same message appears. I have tried to uncheck the SNSIFD, as you suggested, but no joy.

    How do I install TCP/ IP?
    I have tried the old fashioned way of:
    "install" button
    protocol
    TCP/IP
    Again, error message.

    error message "could not add . . " "the system could not find .. ."

    argh

    Maybe want to try a Repair Install?

    TN:
    Thanks.

    I looked for the SNSIFD in services.msc , but didn't find it; found no items labeled Symantec in services.msc.

    I can ping 127.0.0.1 with 4 sent, 4 received.

    I also tried:
    netsh winsock reset catalog
    http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/bb457156.aspx

    Additional considerations:
    Repair Install - thanks for affirming my thought. ;)
    Eat a bowl of soup.
    Grab the PC by its throat & squeeze.
    Eat a sandwich.
    Bike 100 miles.
    Wipe the HDD & donate the computer to a needy cause.

    Thanks, TN. I will keep you posted.

    My friend, the PC owner, uses Vonage. I read a thread http://community.norton.com/norton/board/message?board.id=nis_feedback&message.id=8350
    "There's an interoperability problem between the Symantec Network Intermediate Filter Driver and the Deterministic Network Enhancer which is part of the Cisco VPN. This Symantec driver is not involved with any traffic filtering so you do not lose protection by disabling it (at least for the 2009 release). It participates with the home networking feature and performs local node detection so that feature won't work with the driver disabled."

    I contacted Sym Tech Support. They had me delete:
    C:\Program Files\Norton AntiVirus, which was not present.
    C:\Program Files\Common Files\Symantec Shared
    C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application data (hidden)\symantec

    delete HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Symantec
    delete HKEY_USERS\.DEFAULT\Software\Symantec

    check for Sym services & disable any present. None were present.
    Check Dev Mgr, view > show hidden > and disable any Sym Devices; none present.

    argh

    The problem persists.

    I'd uninstall the Cisco VPN until you get it sorted out too, they're quite famous for screwing up networking at times.

    Thanks for your input.

    How do I uninstall the C VPN? Do I merely delete the VPN connectoid in Network Connections?

    The PC owner uses Vonage.

    I found these in start > programs. I have never established a VPN. Perhaps 1 of these is related to the VPN.

    Have you reinstalled a Norton product since NAV 2007 removal?

    Either way I would still use the Norton Removal Tool at http://service1.symantec.com/Support...05033108162039 (I know you may have done this before) - ensuring it has been run for any version listed that has ever been installed.

    If you have no Symantec / Norton products on the PC is is pefectly safe to remove any Registry traces of Symantec using Regedit from Run.

    You may also wish to run CC Cleaner to delete any erroneous data from Registry http://www.filehippo.com/download_ccleaner/ - it is the most popular download on there.

    As regards removing the unwanted network components would Add / Remove Components work from Add / Remove Programs page? Removing any network references then re-adding may be an option.

    You could try this by rebooting into Safe Mode with Networking mode

    Installing / uninstalling Network items fails. See my screen shots in #1.

    TN: I tried to run a repair of XP, using my legitimate Microsoft Windows XP Home SP2 CD, but it rejected the product key from the official Microsoft sticker on the PC; also Win XP Home SP2.

    I ran the repair on a HDD to which I had cloned my friend's HDD, using Acronis True Image.

    No, Norton / Symantec products were installed after I unistalled NAV 2007.

    I also uninstalled Norton PC Checkup & ran Sym Removal Tool, again.

    Yesterday, I chatted with Sym Tech Support for 2 hrs. At 1.5 hrs, the tech began referring me to Microsoft. I requested escalation, but was not escalated. The level of support provided took a different direction, so the chat tech may have accessed additional resources.

    End result was / is the same. Sym Inte Filter Driver remains.

    I am still unable to install any items to Network Properties.

    I uninstalled the IntelPro chipset & onboard NIC, then ran a tool called Revouninstaller that a friend told me about.

    Also, I disabled the onboard IntelPro ethernet chipset in the BIIOS, then installed a Realtek chipset based NIC. Same problem with Network properties.

    Have you tried to remove the Symantec Network Security Intermediate Filter Driver in Safe Mode?

    Can it be removed using MSCONFIG - perhaps there's a mention of it in boot.ini ?
