After starting windows xp pro sp2 and logged in, i cannot access internet using tcp/ip but i can access other internal servers with ipx/spx.
I try to restart the service but it does not work. I also reinstall XP over the existing XP, no changes.
I run also eTrust antivirus and Spyware Doctor finding no virus or malware

    I'm not 100% sure on this; but, I don't believe IPSEC has to be running for TCP/IP to work and it will definitely fail if TCP/IP is not working, which is your real problem.
    Try this:  It will rebuild the TCP/IP winsock settings and ask you to reboot.
    Let me know what happens if taht doesn't fix it.
