I'm unable to connect to the internet - I get a little bubble in the tool bar saying ICS isn't running/there is no firewall.
I'm unable to restart the firewall services - i tried reloading sharedaccess.reg and it makes not difference.
When I go run cmd and type "netsh firewall reset" I get an error saying Warning: Could not obtain host info from machine [computer name].
When I run firewall.cpl it says there are no firewall services running and asks if i want to start them. When I do I get an error saying "Error 2001: the specified driver is invalid".
System restore doesn't solve the problem either, and i'd prefer not to reinstall windows xp (mainly because I never got the os disks with the laptop).
Thanks in advance!
