McAfee killed ICS

I had ICS hosted by XP (with XP firewall) and computers with 98SE and ME
(both running McAfee Firewall) were using the internet just fine. Then I
installed McAfee Firewall on the XP computer and lost ICS because "No McAfee
product supports ICS." So I uninstalled McAfee Firewall and went back to XP
firewall but the clients can no longer access the internet. I tried
uninstall and reinstall of XP network components and I ran the networking
wizard again with no joy. Is there some registry entry I have to correct?

The simplest solution would be to run System Restore to go back in
time to before you installed the McAfee Firewall.

Good idea, but I'm afraid I put up with no ICS for over a week and my
restore points go back only one week.

Well, I ran the wizard a few more times on all three computers and now all
three are sharing one internet connection just fine.
