Hi Experts,
We have a computer in our kids computer lab that is giving us an issue.  We are unable to add a tcp/ip network printer to it.  Whenever we try to create a new TCP/IP port connection when setting up a new printer we get an error saying cannot access the tcp mib library.  

Have tried several times, tried manually though adding a printer, tried via the pritner drivers, etc.  It all goes back the same error and crashes explorer.  

Any ideas?
