Problem is that I suddenly lost internet after re-booting my computer one day. I tried to repair the network connection but got the following error:

"Windows could not finish repairing the problem because the following action cannot be completed: Failed to query TCP/IP settings of the connection. Cannot proceed"


Now my service works... because I'm using the same internet connection on the computer I'm using to make this post. And there shouldn't be a hardware problem because it was working until I rebooted... So I have no idea why my computer is going out of its way to make me miserable this week. Suggestions would be GREATLY appreciated.

Try to update your NIC drivers.

(If you after installing KIS 7.0.0.125 come out this problem:-press Uninstall on NDIS binding on your TCP/IP properties. Although after a NIC update you might need to repair the product)

P/S: Please try to do system restore first before do it.

You might as well be speaking a foreign language...

I'm sorry if I led you to believe I was a computer expert. What you suggested I try was suggested by someone else and not something I simply came up with on my own. As for your new suggestion... I frankly have no idea what you are talking about.

:thumbsup: like that....

So my last suggestion is change your network card or wireless to new one.

Appologize if can't help you (computer expert).

Not sure if this is what you are asking, ZettiCrew, but it won't hurt to reiterate it.

Before you install a new program, or make any changes to your computer, ALWAYS ALWAYS ALWAYS make a Restore point and then if something goes wrong, you simply go back to before the problem, give a couple of clicks, and everything is back to normal.

You will find System Restore at Start>>All Programs>>Accessories>>System Tools>>System Restore. When you get there, right click on System Restore and left click on PIN TO START MENU. Now when you click the Start button, System Restore should be in the list in the left pane.

To use it, click on System Restore and choose 'restore my computer to an earlier time'. Click Next and choose a date and time you want to go back to. Click Next and wait quite a while until it is finished.

Cheers
