When I select adapters under network settings an error pops up saying "An error occurred while windows was working with the control panel file c:\winnt\system32\ncpa.cpl" I know there is a registry fix to delete the network card...Does anyone know this.

Yup, use regedit and go to this key:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft \Windows NT\CurrentVersion\NetworkCards

and delete it.

Exit regedit and restart.

Thanks for the info, I tried this and am still getting the message and am unable to access or change the IP address of this pc. Please help with any ideas. The System is a Windows NT 4.0 SP6a.

Hey there cpu_f1xer, if this is a new question, I recommend asking it as a new question in the forum... nobody will see this but me, likely.

It's possible you may need to reinstall the networking components, or even do a reinstall of WinNT if the above isn't working...  I'd try to remove the networking components first, if I were you, and reinstall them.
