so far the internet connection is knocked out, it shows all 0's for ip address, in network connections the message is there, saying " connecting"
also, the windows firewall is disabled and wont enable.
Remote Procedure Call,RPC, locator is stopped in services and wont restart.
ok, some new info here so i will edit in.
i did a r-click on my computer, then manage, services apps, then services, found the RPC locator disabled, so i set to automatic and started, it did fine. rebooted, but still find the following problems:
however, DHCP client was on auto but wont start. when i try to start i get
error 1075, the dependency service does not exist or is marked for deletion.
windows firewall/internet connection sharing is on auto but wont start. when i try to start i get
error 10050 socket operation encountered dead network.
would the windows repair feature on a windows install disk get it back up and running?
or is it time to reinstall?
question? i found in the services, something called "remote registry" which allows a remote user to alter the registry, how convenient. it was set to automatic. i set it to disable. not sure if that is the first thing a hacker would change if trying to gain access. am i correct that it should be set to disable unless you have a bonified remote assist in progress?
