    I'm hoping there's a workaround to this that doesn't involve reinstalling xp. I'm trying to connect to a small home network but I can't tell internet explorer to automatically determine LAN settings because I can't get to the applet. Every time I select tools>internet options a small dialog box flashes and then disappears before i can even see what it says. I realize this is the same applet as control panel>internet options... same result there. I tried adding/removing IE hoping the internet options applet would be replaced. I tried setting up a new connection manually and also using the new connection wizard.

    Can you replace individual applets?

    Other ideas?

    Thanks-

    Wheeler

    Thanks... It's my home computer so I won't be able to try anything until this evening.

    More suggestions welcome... i'd like to have a few options to try.

    Does anybody know if windows' automatic LAN config does anything you can't do manually?
