ICS problems

I tried ICS, but I didn't like it too much, so I got rid of it again. Now I want to set up Sygate, but get problems since it won't find an NIC on the client. So I checked on my IPs there and what do I get? Instead of my Linksys NIC I find an entry that says NDIS Mac Layer 1.0 - is that some stuff left from ICS?

It would be great if you could tell me how to get rid of it and get my Linksys back again. I already uninstalled and reinstalled it, but it doesn't work that way.

Hi Simon! Give this a try.

1. Restart the system in safemode.

2. From control panel, go into device manager and remove the NIC entries, there may be more than one, so remove them all.

3. Now, from control panel, go into networking and remove all of the protocols, NICs etc but don't reboot yet.

4. Now go into Add/Remove Programs, Windows Setup and make sure that all networking items are unchecked.

5. Now shut the system down and remove the NIC from the PC.

Now restart the system to a command prompt only by either tapping the F8 key or holding the Ctrl key down during boot.

At the command prompt, change directories to \Windows\Command. At the prompt, type SCANREG/FIX<enter>

When scanreg finishes, restart the system normally and make sure there are no networking components installed.

Now shutdown and reinstall the NIC normally along the the protocols that you need.
