    Please locate the following registry:

    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\TCPIP6\Parameters\Interfaces

    compare the value on another working computer and change the value.

     With you help I was able to identify one part of a problem. The \Interface folder in the registry, winch is a sub folder of \Parameters\  is missing, and as far as I can tell it contains a hole lot of files. Sow is this some thing that can be downloaded, or is there a way to extract it from a registry and mack it in to a .reg file so it ca be merged with other computers. If yes then how? Thanks in advance.

  • Hi,

    Sorry for the late reponse.

    It is suggested to find an identity computer and locate the registry, export. Then copy to this problematic one and import by double clicking.
