When I turn on my computer my network is unable to renew my ip address so i cannot get online on it. When I try to open the firewall from the control panel, it states that the windows firewall/internet connection sharing (ICS) service is not running would you like to start it?

If I say yes it just fails to start.

If I go control panel->administrative tools->services and try to start it from there i get error 10050: A socket operation encountered a dead network.

I've googled the error and tried to follow some other threads but the solutions do not work. i downloaded a sp3 update. ive tried these commands found in another thread:


Reset TCP/IP stack to installation defaults, type: netsh int ip reset reset.log

Reset WINSOCK entries to installation defaults, type: netsh winsock reset catalog





These are symptoms that occured due to a xp security 2012 infection but the virus has seemingly been removed after running a bunch of antivirus programs.


Quick question if i just wiped the system installed the xp os again and then added the network would it definitely work? at this point it might be worth it to save the days ive wasted trying to fix it.

Yes that would work.
Have you tried doing a System Restore to a date prior to the infection?

I believe you have XP.

If you're not sure how to reformat and reinstall Windows, please review:These links include specific step-by-step instructions with screenshots:
Don't forget you will have to go to Microsoft Update and apply all Windows security patches after reformatting.

Note: If you're using an IBM, Sony, HP, Compaq, Toshiba, Gateway, Dell or other manufacturer built computer, you may not have an original CD Disk. By policy Microsoft no longer allows OEM manufactures to include the original Windows CD-ROM on computers sold with Windows preinstalled. Instead, most computers manufactured and sold by OEM vendors come with a vendor-specific Recovery Disk or Recovery Partition for performing a clean "factory restore" that will reformat your hard drive, remove all data and restore the computer to the state it was in when you first purchased it. Please read Technology Advisory Recovery Media.

If the recovery partition has become infected, you will need to contact the manufacturer, explain what happened and ask them to send full recovery disks to use instead. If you lost or misplaced your recover disks, again you can contact and advise the manufacturer. In many cases they will send replacements as part of their support.
