OS : Win 98
HW : IBM Aptiva PIII700.
I was unable to access/ping web sites by name/IP address. I was able to access some of these sites using a HOSTS file. I figured it was a DNS problem and enabled DNS settings with my ISP DNS server numbers. Rebooted. Still getting same problems. I figure I can just uninstall and reinstall TCPIP. I remove TCPIP and Dial Up networking. Reboot. Reinstall and reboot again (too many reboots with Win32 systems!). Now I am getting invalid page faults when I start any network aware apps like Netscape, IE etc.
I uninstalled and reinstalled Dial Up Networking. Reboot cycle. Still getting invalid page faults.
I go into network properties and TCPIP keeps the DNS servers that I configured way back.
Do I have to delete some files to completely uninstall TCPIP and then reinstall it ?
