  2. Hi

    What other protocals/services do you have bound to that adaptor?.and can you
    add/remove them without issue?

    I note from your post this sentence "when I select File and Printer sharing
    and I click ok if I go back file and printer sharing will not be checked ??
    "

    I assume you have tried selecting install>service>add> etc etc after first
    removing it

    What user rights are you logged on with?

    This could I guess be a TCP/IP issue (try c:\>netsh int ip reset resetlog.txt)
    - clutch at straw...lol

    Regards
