The windows under control panel - network connections is empty. Have added a usb nic to the system without any change. The network connections appear in device manager and are active. I get no info from an ipconfig. I have reset the winsock and ip stack. I get a 1068 dependency error when i try to start the network connection service or dhcp service. I have heard of malware that blows away the ip stack.

Should have read more carefully first, was asking if they list in Device Manager, but you have already stated they are, you can try deleting the devices and rebooting see if it will rereate them correctly

connected a second usb adapter - still no network devices
the problem stem from the network services not being able to load
I don't know which one has to start first many are interdependent
