Hi,

i've been referred here from http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/topic143662-30.html.

The problem i'm having is my Local Area Connection has mysterious disappeared

In the Start > Settings... > Control Panel > Network Connections > there's no "Local Area Connection" icon there.I tried re-adding it using the add network wizard (or something similar) but the "LAC" icon still fails to show up.

However , Local Area Connection still shows in Task manager, but not the "network connections' window http://img386.imageshack.us/my.php?image=syserrorep2.jpg


my computer is running Win Xp.

Thanks in advance!

Go to Start--> Run--> type 'devmgmt.msc'--> ENTER

Are there any devices under 'Network Adapters' marked with a yellow '?' and/or '!' ?

Try reinstalling your drivers for your network card, if that doesnt work you might have a bad network card or network port on your motherboard.

I know for sure it's not faulty hardware, because on my Windows Vista it's working fine (I have a dual boot system).

As for reinstalling my drivers, I shall try that and let you know the results.


Thanks.

Also kindly note that my computer is currently "battling a suspected infection", as mentioned in the first post (link to topic).
My Motherboard is a Asus M2A-VM if that helps at all.

Thanks.
