I'm having one crazy issue after another with my windows 2000 box. On friday the box decided it didn't want to go to the internet while the device was booted up normal I could ping websites I could ping other computer on the network just couldn't access the internet. If I went in to safe mode totally different situation I could access the internet ping I had full access to internet and network. Well I was working on removing what ever problem was in the computer. The companies IT guy decided he would give it a shot while I was gone and instead of trying to remove anything or even scanning the computer he decided to delete the tcp/ip and not even install a place holder. So when i got back to the office i used combo fix and malware bytes got the system completly cleaned tried to a setup a static ip to connect to the office computer and I had no TCP/IP tried to install and this is the message I get. COULD NOT ADD THE REQUESTED COMPONENT. THE ERROR IS: THE NAME IS ALREADY IN USE AS EITHER A SERVICE NAME OR A SERVICE DISPLAY NAME.
I've already tried a dirty install that didn't work not sure what else to try please please help me thank you
