Go to Control Panel > Network and Internet Connections.
Right click your connection,(the one used to connect to the internet),and select properties. On the advanced tab uncheck "Allow other network users to connect through this computer's Internet connection" and click ok.

Can you post the error exactly as it is shown in the XP event viewer? That would help troubleshoot this a lot.
Start, control panel, administrative tools, event viewer. Scroll down and find the IPNATHLP error then either screenshot or copy and paste the contents and post them here.
Specifically the event ID number.
June 28th, 2004, 11:46 AM
The Event ID is 31012
and in the description says "The DNS proxy agent encountered an error while obtaining the local list of name-resolution servers. Some DNS or WINS servers may be inaccessible to clients on the local network. The data is the error code.
im not on a network, altho i have set up lans with mates at my house and my cable modem is usb :E

I have the same Event ID 32003, Source: IPNATHLP problem.
A screenshot of the most recent of many errors, is here. Thanks in advance for any help that I can get on this site.
The problem I have is that I use ICS, so the advice to disable this facility isn't any good to me. Again, thank you for any help you can give.

You could try deleting the Nic, and all network settings and starting over from fresh. I don't know if it will work but it may.

Hi Big Booger, and thanks for replying

Sadly, I haven't learnt anything from this, but the problem appears to be resolved so I'm happy. Thanks again for replying !!! I'll stick around just in case I've any other problems that I need help or advice on. Nice site !!!

So Sygate might have been the root of the issue? I ditched it long ago for Agnitum Outpost.
