When i try to run the program nbtstat from the dos command line in windows xp i get the following message ... "Failed to access NetBT driver -- NetBT may not be loaded" ... I've gone into the registry and set it to run automatically, and restarted, but it just stays the same.
Any help would be great.
Thanks in advance.

You may not have rights to it? At school, we can't run it under limited accounts. Whether they have disabled it or not... I'm not sure. I'm assuming that you've done some searching a bit?
Or, m$'s knowledgebase
err... what OS are you using?
You didn't mention what else you've tried... so there are a couple of things to try out.
is a firefox extension that gives you stats on how long you have quit smoking, how much money you\'ve saved, how much you haven\'t smoked and recent milestones. Very helpful for people who quit smoking and used to smoke at their computers... Helps out with the urges.

Go to start and run. Type services.msc. Make sure the TCP/IP NetBIOS helper service is enabled and started. Hope this helps.
