I am having a strange problem to join a windows xp pro to the domain. I have tried to reinstall the microsoft client services, reinstall the NIC driver. Still it refused to let me join the domain. I can't reinstall the OS because it has an important program on it. Any suggestion is deeply appreciated.

If you have a WinXP disc, you could try booting from it and doing a repair install. Sounds like something is corrupted. You might also want to check for rootkits and viruses.

try this command from XP then try again - it resets the TCP/IP stack

netsh int ip reset c:\resetlog.txt

How did you uninstall TCP/IP? If you mean unchecking it, that doesn't uninstall it.

I would still try the command I listed above.
