how completely to remove network in win98se?
I want to remove every network component. not only from control panel, but from registry too.
I put a network card. Then i changed it with other. Now windows does not work ok. Everything seems ok. Protocols, addressess ... ok.
But this computer cant start server on some games. I mean it starts server but clients cant join.
I want to remove everything connected with network and make clean start from begining.
so what should i remove.
Have you checked the Help files under Network? I know, dumb question. Doesn't give much info on removing from registry so maybe it's not necessary?

What OS are you using?
Some things here may only be available in winnt4-5. If win98, I will try and do some research before spouting off. First thing to completly remove networking is to remove the protocols from your system. You can do that by right clicking on Network Neighborhood and choosing properties, then go to protocols and remove them all. Now go to device manager. Remove the network card from the device manager. Shut the computer down and remove the nic.
Start her up and if WIN9x or Win2000 start in safe mode. F8 at boot for 2000, can't remember what key for 9x.
Then go into device manager once again, and make sure that you do not have any nics listed. When done, reboot.
Now, this is completely optional, and NOT RECOMMENDED, but to be comlplete, I will include it here. You can also remove your hosts, networks, services, lmhosts, and protocol files. I highly recommend that you just rename them with a .bak extension in case anything goes wrong. Copy fresh ones off of the CD (Might be created for you when you reinstall TCP/IP, I just don't know)
Now the network function is about as removed as you can get it. (If you have a modem in the computer, do the same steps at the same time as you do the nic. Otherwise it is an effort in futility.)
Now shut down put the new card in and reinstall.
