static ip address will not stay when applied to adapter

keep geeting this error:
IP could not open the registry key for adapter TCPIP\Parameters\Adapters\NDISWANIP. Interfaces on this adapter will not be initialized
I add the static ip and hit ok and go back into see the setting and it showing auto config.

I updated the drivers, repaired tcpip ran netdiag

I found nothing.

everytime the server locks up i reboot and the error appears in the log: IP could not open the registry key for adapter TCPIP\Parameters\Adapters\NDISWANIP. Interfaces on this adapter will not be initialized

Please help

Replace the NIC or disable it and add another one.

2) Check that there is no registry corruption or permission issues
