I would uninstall the software, and restore to your restore point.

Enable the connection created in network connection in control panel . Dont go on creating connections.
The connection gets disabled on reboot due to security reason. All you have to do is right click the connection created  and click enable

and i checked control panel for network connection and it was enabled already in both computers.

Check whether the drivers are conflicting . Go to control panel -system-device manager in the list see netwok connection see whether any kind of "?" or "!." kind of sign exits. If it does then the drivers are conflicting. Also u can try uninstalling and reinstalling u r network drivers.

If the above does not work go to the bios select 1 boot as cd insert winxp bootable cd when the setup launches you get a blue screen with three option press "R" ie for recovery console option just follow the onscreen instruction and system and network connections will get repaired automatically. I am positive this solution will work for you

 If none of the above solutions work it seems like os files are corrupted and you need to install a new copy
with the help of a bootable cd

If you find above solution helpful please appreciate my work with providing points.
