Well this is the thing, I have this LAPTOP. It has had numerous problems working on the network. According to MS I should uninstall "networking" and re-install it. However, they gve no instructions on how to do this other than what I stated above. But like I said when you go to the add/remove Windows Components, there is no "remove" option. I want to completely remove networking components (TCP/IP)

Free Tool: Subnet Calculator

The subnet calculator helps you design networks by taking an IP address and network mask and returning information such as network, broadcast address, and host range.

One of a set of tools we're offering as a way of saying thank you for being a part of the community.

Or do you just want to remove the icon from the desktop?  If your trying to free space up on a small drive this will not accomplish much.

Right-click network neighborhood, properties, Check properties of Client for MS Netorks and TCP/IP and write down the settings, you may need to reconfigure them after you remove TCP/IP.  Highlight anything appearing under your network card and uninstall/remove.  Once you have removed all, restart your Laptop and go pack and set properties for TCP/IP.

Try what the two guys above me said.  if for some reason it doesn't work, it should though given their reputation, edit the file sysoc.inf, contained in the INF directiory.  any place in there where the word hide appears, delete it.  this will give you the option of uninstalling more things in the add/remove programs

Really MSGeek you really didn't know this. Hmmm :>)

Although the components in question aren't hidden from the add/remove they just aren't part of the components that get listed in the add/remove.
