The DHCP Client Service in Windows XP, depends on these three components: * AFD * NetBios over Tcpip * TCP/IP Protocol Driver If one of the above drivers fail to start, then the DHCP Client Service may not start. == Open Windows Explorer and navigate to %Windir%\System32\Drivers folder. Make sure that the following files are present in the folder: * afd.sys * tcpip.sys * netbt.sys If one or more of the above driver files are missing, extract them from the Windows XP CD-ROM or from the ServicePackFiles\i386 folder, whichever is the latest version. == From other sources in the Web, I've found that installation of Norton Antivirus (NAV) adds an entry to the DHCP Service dependencies, and removing NAV does not remove the corresponding entry from the DHCP Dependencies. To view the dependency services registered for DHCP Client Service, type the following command in Start, Run dialog: CMD /K SC QC DHCP Verify the output. It should be exactly as below: [SC] GetServiceConfig SUCCESS





BINARY_PATH_NAME : C:\WINDOWS\system32\svchost.exe -k netsvcs


TAG : 0



: Afd

: NetBT


If additional entries are listed under DEPENDENCIES... If any other additional drivers or Services are mentioned in the DEPENDENCIES section, you need to remove them via the registry. Follow these steps: * Click Start, Run and type Regedit.exe* Navigate to the following branch: * Backup the branch to a REG file HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE \ SYSTEM \ CurrentControlSet \ Services \ Dhcp * Double-click DependOnService value and set its data as follows: Tcpip


NetBT * Close Regedit.exe == Next step is to verify that the three dependency components are running. Follow the steps below: * Click Start, Run and type DEVMGMT.MSC * In the View menu, click Show hidden devices * Double-click Non-Plug and Play drivers section * Double-click the entry AFD, and click the Driver tab * Set the Startup type to System. * Start the service. Note down the error message if any. * Similarly start the two other drivers namely: * TCP/IP Protocol Driver * NetBios over Tcpip * Close Device Manager and restart Windows.

Will erasing browser history delete the records from the internet service providers?

It does not because when I go into private browsing, which doesn't keep my history (almost the same thing as deleting my history), on my schools computer, it tells me that the sites I go to can still be tracked by their Internet Service Provider. Deleting your browser history only deletes it on your local hard drive where your browser resides. Your ISP is totally independent from your machine and what you do there has no effect on what is stored on the drives that your ISP has in their servers. To put it another way - when you delete your browser history, it doesn't change the information on your neighbor's computer - just yours.
