Hi,

I have a problem with windows server 2003. When i try to add Client for microsoft networks i get the following errror "could not add the requested component. the error is: Access is denied"
I am logged in as a local administrator. I tried reinstalling tcp/ip and the NIC but still cant get the client installed. Anybody have ideas?

Since you have a permissions failure, you need to find out where it is.... The below apps can help with this......

RegMon for Windows v7.04
http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/sysinternals/bb896652.aspx

FileMon for Windows v7.04
http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/sysinternals/bb896642.aspx

Set the filter at the top to Include "*", to highlight "access denied", and then try and recreate the errors by reinstalling the client. Then go to these apps, and look for the red, and it will tell you where the permissions are shot. Open up those areas and then test.....

Or even use the new and improved utility form Sysinternals, that contains them both....

Process Monitor v2.04
http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/sysinternals/bb896645.aspx

Once you identify the problem areas, they can be packaged for deployment to run properly....

I recently had the same problems on a Window XP box.  Had to flatten the box and re-build.  The problem was that the box had been infected by multiple virus.  I can't remember which one did what, but it was not a virus that any major virus scanner (McAffe, Symatec, TrendMicro, AVG) found.

I tried manually cleaning the computer, but there was some registry changes that when I "cleaned" them messed up things so much that the NIC were not even detected as being physically installed.  

For some reason I can't remember the names of any of the virus.
