Previously Owned Computer

Kevin Egli

Hello,

We (my dad) received this old computer from a car
dealership in canada, it was a 230mHz Windows 98 peice of
junk but it was all we had. Well i recently upgraded that
computer with an old p3 800 chip and mobo with WinXP from
a computer at my moms house and decided to create a
network with cross over cables and two network cards, one
going to the net and the other to my laptop.

Unfortunatly the Network Setup Wizard is failing when i
try to run it on the computer, and my ISP is telling me
it is some Administrative Security Issue that is left
from the previous owners, the car dealership.

Microsoft Support wont help me without charging me $145,
I hope maybe someone else can.

-Kevin

"Cannot Complete the Network Setup Wizard
An error occured during configuration of the network on
the computer. You can configure it manually or you can
run the wizard again with different settings"

but before we had xp installed the error was more
like "Error. You have no access to this command. Please
contact administrator"

Some information on this error points to a problem with WMI (Windows Management Instrumentation).

From: http://www.kellys-korner-xp.com/xp_a.htm

To reinstall wmi into the registry:
Go to Start/Run and type in: CMD, then Winmgmt /? for information. Then run each of these hitting enter after each:

winmgmt /clearadap
winmgmt /kill
winmgmt /unregserver
winmgmt /regserver
winmgmt /resyncperf
