StartMenu/Run, type `services.msc`, find Windows Firewall/Internet Connection Sharing (ICS), right click/Properties, press Start.

Start then Control Panel then Administrator Tools then Services find Internet Connection Sharing (ics) double click on it and enable it and set it to Automatic.

Have you recently removed another firewall product?

Make sure Remote Procedure Call and Windows Instrumentation Service are also Started and set to automatic

i don,t think i removed any.what happened was i bought an upgrade disc from xp home to pro and i have had a few hiccups with it.


tried that does not appear to be there.

thanks for the help.

They will be in the services list, if they're missing you really do have problems...Remote Procedure Call (RPC) and Windows Management Instrumentation, as cut and pasted directly from the services snap-in on my own XP machine.

Sorry, I got the latter wrong first time didn't I, no wonder you couldn't see it

Were you using the standard firewall with XP Home?
Get your XP CD handy, Start menu/Run, type `sfc /scannow` to do a system file check. Check your network connection settings are in order, reboot and see if you can see the services in the list then.
