I am trying to access my tcp/ip properties and every time I click properties I get the message "Some of the controls on this property sheet are disabled beacause one or more other Network property sheets are already open" No other windows are open and I have tried uninstalling and rebooting all my network adapters with no luck... I am running XP with SP2...pls help me.

TCP/IP stack repair options for use with Windows XP with SP2.

Start, Run, CMD to open a command prompt:

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

Reset WINSOCK entries to installation defaults: netsh winsock reset catalog

Reboot the machine.

I tired it but stil no luck. I found this post http://www.techsupportforum.com/f137...elp-81034.html from two years ago. Should I try to remove the existing winsock2 registry entries with the del winsock.reg? Do I need to use the WIN2K_WINSOCK.REG or do I need a diffrent one for xp?

Thank you for your help,

Mike

If the WINSOCK fix I posted doesn't do it, that won't either. SP2 has a different set of registry entries from previous versions of XP and 2K, so it's NOT a good idea to use old registry entries.

Time to perhaps do a repair installation in an attempt to fix it.
