Removed old install of Norton A/V while i was in there
machine scans clean with everything but no internet. DHCP and TCP/IP netbios helper won't start with error 1075
saw that others had success with copying AFD.sys to system32\drivers and importing AFD.reg from known good PC. tried that and rebooted.
AFD service does not show in list of services and AFD does not show up in hidden Device Manager.
verified AFD.sys is in proper location. also do see AFD registry key in proper location and matches exactly what is supposed to contain.
have run winsockip fix. have reinstalled tcp/ip protocol. have run netsh winsock reset catalog. have run netsh int ip reset. rebooted after each.
have run sfc /scannow
came here and ran FSS
