IPMONTR.DLL is part of the RRAS.... Might suggest disabling the service if not needed, and reboot. Then retry the netsh winsock reset command, and reboot again.....

If that doesnt work, I would look to replacing that file, with a known good copy....

Extract a copy from the CD, or I386 directory.
If the CDRom is D....

expand d:\i386\ipmontr.dl_ c:\windows\system32\ipmontr.dll

If the PC boots up in Safe Mode....

I would start with the System File Checker...


sfc /purgecache

You WILL need the XP CD for this to complete...

Scannow sfc
