Hi all.. couple days ago my network icon disappeared and device manager components. then avast and online access wouldn't work. many services were disabled . I am still using XP (Yes really). safe mode with clean boot didn't help and system restore doesn't work anymore.
using another 'modern' computer that I absolutely hate, I googled problems and made some adjustments. this is what I found:
I changed the permission in registry and device manager came back. pci modem appears to be the problem but as I have xp, I cannot update the driver so no access to internet. files appear to be intact on computer. media says disconnected. I know that this happened before with the pci modem but I cannot remember how I fixed it.
computer guy says I'm screwed. is this the end of this computer or can anyone help to get my network working??
