    I am trying to unistall or disable Unix Print Services. Trying to unistall TCP/IP protocol, windows 2000 won't let me. The error states that it cannot delete TCP/IP because another system is using it, "Unix Print Services". The only thing installed that I could think of with unix is IPX program used to configure a network printer. I have unistalled this software, so I think! Just need to find out more information of Unix Print Services. Thanks for any help!

    :confused:

    Try going into Safe Mode and delete all Network option and they are add what you need.

    Thanks Dan, I'll try that on Monday. I have unloaded and reloaded the network devices and still recieved the message,however, I have not tried it in safe mode. I am also going to try and disable the services in Task Manager (for some reason I did not think of that until yesterday). I'll let you know how it turns out.
    Thanks again

    Dan, Just an update. It would not let me delete it in safe mode either. I found the files on the machine but have not had time to investgate the where or why this is bound to the tcp/ip adapter.
    If I figure it out I'll let you know.
    Thanks

    Have you tried the following?
    (Don't shoot me for asking the obvious:)

    Control Panel|Add/Remove software
    Add/remove Windows Components
    Deselect the option "Other Network File and Print services"
