Correct me if I'm wrong (Working with old computer, getting it to work) I was having problems with re-installing Windows XP and SP1-3 updates, and connecting to internet.and getting DNS errs. Went into ipconfig, and had no default gateway So, I eventually found my way to windows error reports,doing a search: for "setuperr" Turns out the "computer name" had errors in it with non-allowed characters. Went into Control Panel, clicked on System, did the fix. No underlines, etc. allowed Looking into setuperr logs is really helpful, dont ya think?
