There should be a batch file called ws2bakup.bat in the C:\windows\ws2bakup folder (or where ever windows is installed).  Boot up in msdos mode and run the batch file  to completely remove the Winsock 2 patch.

i got this off of technet for you.  these are the instructions for the ws2bakup utility.  in all fairness, if it works, give dlb6597 the points.


To resolve this behavior, follow these steps:

     1.Click Start, point to Programs, and then click MS-DOS
       Prompt.

     2.At the command prompt, type the following commands,
       pressing ENTER after each command
            cd\windows\ws2bakup
            ws2bakup.bat
            exit

       where windows is the folder in which Windows is installed.

       NOTE: If you are prompted to abort, retry, or fail the
       operation, press A. This causes the Ws2bakup.bat to
       continue restoring up all the necessary files.

       NOTE: If you receive sharing violation error messages
       when you run the Ws2bakup.bat file, continue with step
       3.

     3.Click Start, click Shut Down, click "Restart in MS-DOS
       mode," and then click OK.

     4.Repeat step 2.

       NOTE: If you receive error messages when you run the
       Ws2bakup.bat file stating that some programs cannot be
       run outside of Windows 95, disregard them.

Might be worth checking that your NIC card is actually functioning correctly also.  A quick look into the Control Panel --->System--->devices to see if there is an exclamation mark against your Network Adaptor wouldn't hurt.  If there is, you may have set the card incorrectly on install.  Just revise the settings.

Had the similar problem on systems that had IE 4.01 installed. Found that booting to dos and renaming wsock32.dll the exctracting the old one from the cabs fixed the problem.

Sound`s very much like your IP STACK is corrupted, you will need to remove all items and protocols from network settings in the control panel. Reboot the computer and reinstall everything!!! I bet you are using novell client 32????
