WINDOWS ERROR 10106 and NETLOGON

I currently have Windows XP running on my home PC and Redhat Linux 9 on a second. I have benn trying to configure my PC to enble me to remote logon to my Linux box. In so doing I have changed some of the networking settings on the XP box in an attempt to enable it to be more visible to my home network. However, in so doing I appear to have gone one adjustment to far and now I cannot access the internet. I can dial out fine but cannot connect to any web addresses getting "Server Unavailable" messages. This problem also exists with e-mail.
I also tried a ping from within a dos window and got the following error message.

Could not start NETLOGON on local computer, error 10106. The requested service provider could not be loaded. I have tried a number of different dial up accounts but all with the same results.

I thought I had returned everything to the nominal settings but it made no difference. I have seen references to this error message before on the net but non of the scenarios fit my situation.
Can anyone help please?

Try rebuilding your connection in network properties.
Delete the existing connectoid.
Restart your PC and then rebuild the dialup account.
10 Tips to Protect Your Business from Ransomware

One last suggestion for now:
Your Winsock may be corrupted
http://members.shaw.ca/techcd/WinsockXPFix.exe

Another Expert "shekerra" found out what the WinSockXPFix does:

1- Netsh ip int reset resetlog.txt....2.)

2- replaces these Registry keys:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\Winsock..
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\Winsock2

3- backup old host file and replaces host file

So in essence it detects the OS and releases the IP then resets TCP stack using Netsh. Next it deletes the two registry keys above and Imports the correct keys into the registry. Then it backs up your current hosts file and replaces it with a fresh one and then reboots.

Greetings!

Several good suggestions above.
I've been away from the Exchange for a few months (due to uncontrollable circumstances).
What I've seen take place in the interim is a HORRID run on spyware.

Main contributors are certain P2P programs used by most teens to share music, such as Kazaa, Morpheus, Imesh, Limewire, Grokster, Bearshare as well as various "enhancement" utilities put out by Gator (GAIN), Cydoor, Medialoads, etc.

Btw, I realize that spyware was NOT apparent in the comments you left descibing what may have caused your system's sudden inability to connect to the net.

Just wanted to leave you another place to look to possibly correct the network drivers, with what Spybot will offer to do when run.
