I treid to enable the Windows Firewall from winthin Control panel and it says
it couldn't start the Windows Firewall/Internet Connection Sharing (ICS)
service.

So I went into admin tool, services and tried to start it from there and got:

Could not start the Windows Firewall/Internet Connection Sharing (ICS) service
Error 10047: An address incompatable with the requested protocol was used.

I use TCP/IP protocol on my internet conection and that is all working fine
as far as I know.

I also noticed I can't get to shared folders on this PC within my home
network , but this PC can get to shared folders on other PCs in the netowrk.
Not sure if related to the above. Any ideas ?

I found this info in the Knowledge base, but it doesn't help me fix the
problem. It *sounds* like something with my TCP/IP as thats the only protocol
I "have".

WSAEAFNOSUPPORT (10047)
• Translation: Address family not supported by protocol family.
• Description: An address that is incompatible with the requested protocol
was used. All sockets are created with an associated address family (that is,
AF_INET for Internet protocols) and a generic protocol type (that is,
SOCK_STREAM). This error is returned if an incorrect protocol is explicitly
requested in the socket (Wsapiref_2qr6.asp) call or if an address of the
wrong family is used for a socket, for example, in sendto
(Wsapiref_4sqa.asp).

I tried to do what was posted to try and solve this problem but unfortunately
I'm not a very computer literate person so I'm not sure what was ment. This
problem only started after I loaded and scan with the new anti-spyware beta
1. After I rebooted that is when the trouble started. Can anyone help
please, Microsoft support couldn't help and sent me here.

Hi

If you have Service Pack 2 for WinXP installed, please try this:

Start/Run --> cmd.exe

and then, in the command prompt that opened up, type:

netsh.exe winsock reset

and hit Enter. Follow prompts and reboot.


If that doesn't cut it, or you don't have WinXP SP2, try this one:
