tomzi Posted June 11, 2008 Share Posted June 11, 2008 I'd like to ask for insights from the knowledgeable members of this forum on following matter before I resort to a full reinstall of my XP.I had an nlite'd XP SP2 (firewall removed, etc), network working perfectly in and out, and one day I decided to install SP3 over it. It completed fine, but after a few days I noticed that the pc stopped responding to incoming ping requests and remote desktop connections. I uninstalled the 3rd party firewall I had, suspecting a misconfiguration or bug causing this, but it didn't help. I'm still having unhindered outgoing traffic, but the pc is not responding to any incoming connections. It's as if windows firewall was still "protecting" my machine.Because I removed the firewall service, I can't even try starting or configuring the firewall, and therefore I don't really know if its presence is the cause or not.I think the simplest solution will be to reinstall XP, this time with a slipstreamed SP3. Before I do this, I'd still like to know whether someone could give me some clues how to find out what the matter really is? Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
