    win xp sp2 start>run>cmd>netsh winsock reset


    To Reset the Winsock Registry Entries

    Click Start >Run >regedit {enter}
    Navigate to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\Winsock and delete it; just below that, see HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\Winsock2 and delete it
    Exit Regedit and reboot.

    To Reinstall TCP/IP

    To do this you need a copy of nettcpip.inf. There is one on the Windows XP CD and there may be one on your hard drive at C:\WINDOWS\inf\nettcpip.inf. Note: To see the inf folder, open My Computer and go to the menu item Tools > Folder Options... > View > and choose Show hidden files and folders.

    Right click "My Network Places" select Properties.
    Right click the connection(s) and select Properties.
    Click Install >Protocol >add >have disk.
    Browse to the location of nettcpip.inf .
    Select nettcpip.inf then click Open then OK then Internet Protocol (TCP/IP) then OK then Close
    Reboot

    above is from here http://www.wedoc.com/tcpip.htm

    [EDIT]
    in my friend's case, only his web browser and stuff is dead, he could still connect to AIM etc but cant get any traffic thru the web browser
    [/EDIT]
    That sounds more like DNS problems - can he access web pages through a something like Tor?

    Godsrock37, it sounds like it would be just as easy by now to reinstall Windows and put this down to experience!
