Was going to ask for advice to help me instal SP1 prior to upgrading to Win 7 but now I have another, more pressing problem.
In attempting the various workarounds for SP1 I ran SFC/scnow and Chkdsk. When I ran the latter it identified various errors on the disk that it couldn't fix and suggested using the f fixit function which I duly did.
After restarting I found that I had lost internet access. When you hover over the icon you get the message above. I've done some research and tried running the Netsh Winsock Reset line at the command prompt but to no joy. I've also tried system restore but when I try this I am told that there are no retore points!
In device manager I do have a yellow symbol next to one of the devices so guess I may have to uninstall and then reinstall drivers. Hwever, I'm worried about doing this as I won't be able to search for the new driver as no internet!!
Sorry this is so long but you can probably tell I'm desperate. I'm only able to use the net as I dual boot and thankfully good ole XP is working fine as usual.
I'd really appreciate any advice or fixes for this.
BTW I use Vista Home 32 bit
