This is weird.PC performing great,turned off as per normal.One hour later,cannot access the net.Popup after popup said invalid IP Address.Rang service providor,and had a 1.5 hr hassle with some Indian Call Centre Girl who couldn't understand me and I sure as hell couldn't understand her.After test after test I was told to call a local Technician.Sat night here and no techys.In desperation, I did a system restore as a last resort and this fixed the problem,whatever it was.The reason I am posting is that there may be a guru which may have an explanation for the sudden loss of my IP Address.The only thing that happened right at this time was Foldahome was changing over from one work unit to the new one,and I thought maybe this could have caused the weird behavior.Any help would be appreciated so I can prevent same happening in the future.Windows XP SP2.

Sounds like you fixed it.
If you have the problem again, try one of these. Oh, and about the language problem, I feel your pain. Had a hard time following Hogan in "Crocodile Dundee". Thank goodness for subtitles!


If you removed Norton recently:

WinSock XP Fix offers a last resort if your Internet connectivity has been corrupted due to invalid or removed registry entries. It can often cure the problem of lost connections after the removal of Adware components or improper uninstall of firewall applications or other tools that modify the XP network and Winsock settings. If you encounter connection problems after removing network related software, Adware or after registry clean-up; and all other ways fail, then give WinSock XP Fix a try. It can create a registry backup of your current settings, so it is fairly safe to use. We actually tested it on a test machine that was having a Winsock problem due to some Adware removal, and after running the utility and rebooting, the connectivity was restored.

Pros: May save you hours of headaches; can fix tricky connection problems

Cons: Not actively supported or developed

Freeware

If you don't want to try the program above:

To fix this, repairing your Winsock might work. You can do so by opening the command shell (Start > Run > cmd.exe) and type netsh winsock reset and restart your computer. This command only works in Windows XP with service pack 2 installed.
