thanks, next steps are ghost then upgrade to seven.

just for the stories, when the broken pc boot, I can ping it for a lot of seconds (five to seven) !

the problem is not ping for itself, but every services which aren't accessible from outside, that's incredible...

I too have the same problem described in this thread with Windows Server 2008 R2.

 

I conclude that it is not a configuration issue. Rather I believe there is a "corruption" that can not be identified (and then possibly corrected) with the tools available to me. What tool(s) would be helpful to trouble shoot a problem like this?

Hi MrReis. I kept a several page log of everything I tried, including canvassing support from forums Internet research and even Microsoft support and yet I never did solve the problem. I have bought 2 new Windows 7 PCs now and have had no problems with them. I still have the old Vista PC with the problem on (I just keep it for games now) but know that no-one will ever solve the problem. I have taken ZoneAlarm off it and only use Windows Firewall so I am convinced the problem is in there somewhere as the Firewall log says it is blocking pings even though there is no rule to block them. I will never know the cause and have given up trying to resolve it. There was nothing I had not tried over about 6 months.

Lemme ask cause I don't feel like reading all of the posts, but did you go in and create a rule to allow them in either of the firewalls to see if that solved it?

 

Also, this is why firewalls inside a LAN are stupid. They cause WAY more problems.

CD2,- yes, I did create an exception rule (actually I tried several exception rules) to allow inbound ICMP packets through the Windows firewall - in addition to enabling the Windows built-in exception rules. The firewall log showed that inbound ICMP packets were dropped by the firewall (i.e., not replied to) independent of the rules to allow them.

 

The Windows firewall log proves that the ping packet gets through the router to the Windows PC. I am convinced that I did not neglect to configure anything in Windows to allow the Windows firewall to accept ping packets.

Did you try an installation disc repair of the system? I would do that on my system but I don't have the installation disc (Windows Server 2008 Enterprise).

Hmmm....MrReis might have something. maybe a sfc /scannow at an elevated command prompt might do something.
