Is this a new pc?? If not, have you upgraded quite recently??

Goto Start->Run->sfc /scannow  - Windows will check all OS files and replace teh missing or corrupted ones with fresh copies, might need the Windows XP CD though.

Do you have Norton's installed (or did you have it?)
This thread might be helpful

Recommends browsing to these registry keys

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\System\CurrentControlSet\Services\DHCP
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\System\CurrentControlSet\Services\NetBT

looking for the DependOnService value
and deleting any references to SYMTDI or NISDRV

You should find a copy of tcpip.sys  and tcpip6.sys in your folder C:\WINDOWS\system32\drivers
