    trying to view network connections settings, bindings..
    (little bit new to subject), but do "not" seem to have access to:
    control panel, network, (don't even see network link, where might find
    tabs: id, services, protocols, adapters, bindings)

    not sure if any true of some trojan or setting keeping from view, or not
    part of xp home (sp3), maybe some security application? or internet provider
    block item from view? (if relevant, have: verizon fast dsl, sbsd: spybot
    s&d, malware bytes anti-malware, spyware blaster..)

    am trying to check network/ internet settings, security..
    thanks

    What anti-virus application or security suite is installed and is your
    subscription current?

    Has a(another) Norton or McAfee application ever been installed on the
    computer (e.g., a free-trial version that came preinstalled when you bought
    it)?

    Copy/paste the following line into Start > Run

    %windir%\system32\ncpa.cpl

    Click OK

    What happens?

    If you get an error to the effect that the file can't be found, search,
    making sure that hidden and system files are included, for ncpa.cpl
    This file *should* be located in C:/%WINDIR%\system32, but if it is not,
    there may be a copy in %WINDIR%\system32\dllcache.

    If you find ncpa.cpl in \dllcache, copy to \system32 (although it should
    have been copied automagically). If ncpa.cpl is not in \dllcache, if
    Windows came preloaded on your computer, you probably have a C:/I386
    directory. Look in there for ncpa.dl_. If found, you can EXPAND ncpa.dl_
    (see Help & Support for directions) it into \system32. If you don't
    have an I386 directory but do have a Win XP CD, you can find ncpa.dl_ there.

    hi, thanks for the responses, hope reply goes to both.. answers:

    thought having error with:
    (if this is where want to be?):

    click: my network (and descending sub directories/ + signs),
    entire network, ms windows network, click mshome: waiting at least 30 secs
    PROBLEM: ?
    says: you do not have permision etc (home pc, have sole admin rights..)


    PLEASE HELP TO FIND:
    if correct using xp home?:
    network window, tabs: identification, services, protocols, adapters,
    bindings

    if this is an old procedure / how do i find these tabs in xp home?
    procedure at:
    http://www.grc.com/su-rebindingnt.htm

    ----------
    relatively new reinstall os, dell 2001, xp home sp3, skipped reinstall: za;
    don't think had reinstalled system mechanic; sec apps: mostly just what
    listed, had zone alarm did Not reinstall / they turned my store bought copy
    off on me???, wth. (from somewhere za/..: sys restore was not working,
    stopped working again even after reinstall OS, maybe around time of sp3, not
    sure)

    don't know if security apps don't count as AV: sbsd, mbam, swb, SAS
    (RECENTLY: SAS; SUPER ANTI-SPYWARE; other: spybot search-destroy,
    malwarebytes anti-malware, spyware blaster).

    SAS: FOUND (internet seems to call: Fake alert, what means?)
    SSHNAS SAS found 9 registry entries (do not see origin)
    HKLM\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Enum\Root\LEGACY_SSHNAS,
    _SSHNAS#Nextinstance _SSHNAS\0000 SSHNAS\0000#Class 0000#ClassGUID
    #ConfigFlags #DeviceDesc #Legacy #Service

    Question would be if SAS is a spoof: fake alerts.. if the above was not
    installed by SAS, are they real?
    ----------

    tried again: run , ncpa.cpl

    click on Local Area Connection, click on properties see:
    window: local area connections properties; tabs: general, advanced
    - gen tab sub item: this connection uses..: (lists 4 items)
    client ms networks, file printer sharing, qos packet scheduler, inet
    protocol tcp/ip

    example of a security procedure trying to work on directs / trying to find:
    nt: cp, network configuration dialog box (don't see this option / network
    icon)

    PLEASE HELP TO FIND:
    if correct using xp home? trying to find:
    network window, tabs: identification, services, protocols, adapters,
    bindings
