Network protocol missing after version 10 update

Q: Network protocol missing after version 10 update

Cannot access the Internet after version 10 is installed on my desktop.

Preferred Solution: Network protocol missing after version 10 update

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

A: Network protocol missing after version 10 update

I have a laptop, I found after installing up dates after initial windows 10 install and restarting, I could not connect to the internet and error was missing protocols etc , while I am computer illiterate I rummaged around and found, That by turning off my laptop and then turning on, there was no error and I was connected to the internet, if I just restart the laptop then the error is back and so is loss of internet connection, so while this may be unrelated to your problem and I have yet to get this problem resolved it may help someone get connected, so turn off, not restart.

God knows how this happened, but I've been yanking my hair out attempting to fix it.

I'm running Windows XP on a Dell Inspiron 9300.

Upon restart a few days ago, I was unable to connect to any wireless connection. My Wireless Network Connection Properties box looked as such:

After re-installing the Intel/Pro Wireless 2915ABG program/drivers/etc., when I click on "Configure" it goes to the adapter's properties screen. (woohoo!)

However, I have no TCP/IP protocol. I click on "Install", choose "Protocol" and receive the following error:

"Could not add the requested component. The error is: The system cannot find the file specified".

Any help would be greatly appreciated. It's making me positively nuts.

Thank you!

Hi Guys,

This one has been bugging me for the past few updates for Java Version 8 - the "Update" tab is missing for the Java Control Panel program.

This was (apparently) a bug in earlier version, but is supposedly fixed.

I'm running Windows 10 Pro 64-bit and have had this issue with at least the last three updates to the Java JRE Version 8 64-bit.

I've tried uninstalling, cleaning the registry and making sure any leftover Java-related files are gone, but once I reinstall Java, the problem is still there.

Can anyone else confirm this issue?

I am just curious about this protocol. on my desktop computer it shows local access and sometimes shows limited internet access. On my Laptop, wifi puter, the IPv6 is never used, is there a way to utilize this protocol for my laptop and why does the access go from limited internet to Local on my desktop?

Thank you

A:Internet Protocol Version 6

I don't know much about IPv6. Even this 'introductory' video is too technical for me in parts!; http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2wa7y3W2DI0&feature=related

One thing I do remember reading last year, when IPv6 Day was held, was that it wouldn't have much impact on home users until the majority of ISP's enabled the new protocol on their servers. I assume that will cost money so they'll only do it when IPv4 addresses are closer to exhaustion.

EDIT: Attempts to post the video URL seem to produce a 'freeze frame'. Go to www.explania.com and search 'What is IPv6?'

I am using a wireless linksys wrt160n router with a linksys AE1000 usb adapter on windows 7. Up until now I have had no problems. A few days ago, I came home to find that we had had a blackout. I had no connection and could not seem to fix it.
Up until that time, I've always used my network connection 4 for internet access but no matter what I did to I couldn't get a connection. So I thought if I disabled this connection and then enabled it that somehow it would reset itself and I would have a connection. Unfortunately when I disabled it there was no option for enabling it because it disappeared. I currently am using network connection 6, but my internet is at a crawling speed.

I searched on how to reinstall network connections 4 and found this page http://windows.microsoft.com/en-US/windows7/Change-TCP-IP-settings
At the bottom is says to "To install IPv4, run Command Prompt as an administrator, type netsh interface ipv4 install, and then press Enter." I did so successfully and restarted my computer like it said to after inputting the command. But when I brought up my network connections, there was no network connection 4.

I even went to the command prompt and typed ipconfig /all and the IPv4 entries are not there like it used to.
Any help would be appreciated.

thank you

A:One or more internet protocol is missing

Hello, there is quite a number of threads on this topic, and some suggested approaches. The problem appears to arise with build 10586 (the 'November upgrade').

It could also help if you complete your system specs (esp what type of wifi card you have e.g.).
(If unsure how to do that there is a Tutorial - see link above)
Do you also have this problem with an ethernet connection?

This refers to the build change and suggests a somewhat radical command:

A quick scan of these threads suggests:
Wifi+ win10= death of me - Page 4 - Windows 10 Forums
(please read the whole thread)

Note this one referring to a Windows Update:
Possible Solution to Win 10 WiFi Connection Problems - Page 2 - Windows 10 Forums

This one suggests registry patches:

Hi All

I cannot create a "mailto" shortcut that works. It appears that the mailto protocol is missing, Windows Live Mail is set as my default mail client in WLM settings, but it doe's not appear in the default program list. The only thing that shows up with any connection with WLM is "Windows Contacts"

I have been reading articles about this problem, and one suggested that a registry tweak in the "mailto" entry may repair the problem. However there is no "mailto" entry at the suggested location in the reg.

In default programs / Set program access and computer defaults / custom, I can choose WLM as my default email program, but when I return to that setting again it has reverted to "use current".

When I create a mailto shortcut it defaults it's association with Chrome, my default browser and carries a Chrome icon. I have re-installed WLM but that did nothing to resolve the problem.

Am running W7 Ultimate.
If anyone can help, it will be most appreciated.........

Thankyou for your help...Abe

A:Mailto protocol missing

Hello Abe,

You can go into Default Programs (Set Associations option), and scroll down towards the very bottom until you see the MAILTO protocol if listed here instead (should be). From here, you can select MAILTO, click on the Change program button, and select to have MAILTO use Windows Live Mail again.

Hope this helps,

Hello! I need help with networking on Windows 7. I have upgraded from Vista recently, but since then my network connection has just gone. I think it's something to do with the fact that my IPV6 protocol is behaving strangely, but I can't connect to any other devices on our home network. I can connect to the Internet, no problem, but I can't, for example, connect to my Xbox 360 with Media Centre. I have trawled the Internet looking for a solution, but I have had no luck. Also, instead of a signal strength icon in the bottom right corner, I have an five empty bars with a yellow star on it. Help!

(I have Windows XP) I was trying to clean out my computer for more disk space, so I was deleting files I thought I didn't need in my Program Files. I have a habit of deleting by using SHIFT+DELETE, which permanently deletes the file without sending it to the Recycle Bin. So I went into a folder titled "Bin" and deleted a bunch of what I thought was gibberish (weird file names). I also deleted other things I thought were unimportant.

Who would've thought that after doing that stupid act, I can no longer upload files, send files, OR view videos in my Windows Media Player.

ANOTHER THING: It also sometimes gives me an error message saying Windows met an error and had to close. I was viewing My Computer when it happened, and when I clicked more info. it said that I was missing an Internet Protocol (IP)..so I'm wondering how I can get it back?

I have an old Quantex laptop that was handed down to me running windows 98. I had it all set up with a D-Link wireless card to a D-Link wireless router. It was working fine. It stopped working and like an idiot I pulled out the D-Link card without disabling it while the laptop was running. I have installed and re-installed the D-Link drivers and software and have no problem connecting to the router. The problem is I can't get to the internet because the TCP/IP protocol is missing - I can't bind the D-Link card to the TCP/IP protocol. When I try adding a protocol the window comes up where you highlight what you want to add - protocol, adapter etc. I highlight protocol but nothing happens.

What can I do to get the TCP/IP protocol back?

This is to do with Protocols, although check to see if you have them first:


Just as an afterthought, Have you tried the Repair? Control Panel | AddRemove. Click on Microsoft Internet Explorer. Ckick AddRemove. Choose Repair, apply and restart.

Also, you say this has happened after you changed your soundcard. If you remove it and place the old one back in does it still have the error?

But why i did found out is that he's always getting 3 error messages (in the Windows event viewer) about 20 min prior to the unplanned reboot. 
These are the error message in the event viewer:
1) The following fatal alert was generated: 10. The internal error state is 1203 --> Schannel ID3688 --> time: 19:00
2) The same as above on the exact same time with same event
3) RDP protocol component X.224 detected an error in the protocol stream and has disconnected the client --> TermDD ID50 --> Time: 19:48 (about 25 min prior to the reboot)
Who can help me out here. This is driving me crazy. Sometimes we miss days of recording, while we aren't using that PC for other things.

I did quite a bit of online research prior to asking my own question, but none of  the solutions I've found online really pertain to the issue we're experiencing.  
We have 2 Windows 7 Pro PCs in the office.  They are accessed via RDP from within the same network/location.  The systems that are accessing these 2 PCs are an XP Pro machine and a Mac.  The clients stay connected for randomly lengths of time
(no longer than 1 hour) before the session goes black and disconnects them randomly.  When the disconnect occurs, it's not due to inactivity.  The user has to wait several minutes before they are able to reconnect.  
On the Windows 7 PCs, Event Viewer gives:
Event ID: 50  The RDP protocol component X.224 detected an error in the protocol stream and has disconnected the client.
Event ID: 56  The Terminal Server security layer detected an error in the protocol stream and has disconnected the client. 
I've seen suggestions of checking registry keys and a lot of suggestions regarding Windows Server and Terminal Server, but they don't apply to our situation.  Please let me know if more information is required.  Thank you!

A:The RDP protocol component X.224 detected an error in the protocol stream and has disconnected the client.



Do you enable the
IEEE 802.1x authentication?


Regarding the issue, I suggest updating the network adapter driver manually on Windows 7 PCs. Also update the router's driver and firmware.


If the issue persists, you could disable the TCP Offload. To do this,


Run the following commands on both the client and the server to disable NIC offloading.


netsh int tcp set global chimney=disabled

netsh int tcp set global rss=disabled


Modify the following registry key to disable netDMA on the client and the server.




Note: If this registry entry does not exist, right-click Parameters, point to New, click DWORD Value, type EnableTCPA, and then press ENTER.


Value: 0


You can also refer to the following KB to troubleshoot the issue. Hope it helps.

Recently developed problem (perhaps since a new clean install of everything on SSD):

- Opera 11.62/12b or Waterfox 12 browsers, email client (Sylpheed) set as Windows default, set as Opera and Waterfox mailto default with the following command/parameter
C:\Program Files (x86)\Sylpheed\sylpheed.exe --compose mailto:%t

- If email client is closed, mailto link opens client and compose window with address (good)
- If email client is open and command used without parameter, focus shifts to email client (no compose window) - that's as it should
- If email client is open, mailto link --> nothing happens

The latter is the problem.

In addition, right now mailto is not showing in "Default Programs > Associate a file type or protocol." Can't figure out why. However, when it did, setting Sylpheed as default mailto had no effect on the main problem.

Any ideas? thanks,

A:Mailto missing from registry (& Associate File Type or Protocol List)

Since my OP, I've got the registry settings such that the external email client, Sylpheed, is seen as the default email client and mailto program by Windows, as well by Opera, FF and IE9 browsers. What's really odd now is that it take numerous repeated quick mouse clicks with any of those browsers to get a compose window to open in the condition where Sylpheed is already running. I've got Windows set to single-click open, but that doesn't make any difference with mailto links - and only mailto links. Not sure what to make of it, since it didn't use to act this way. Any ideas? Sylpheed is text-based if that is at all relevant.

(example mailto links: http://mc-computing.com/HTML_Examples/MailTo.htm)

Hi and thanks to anybody kind enough to help me. I checked my networkk adapter protocol and I have only 8 and should have at least 10. I reset winsock and restarted and I still only have 8. I looked at my network adapter and it reports ip address, ip subnet not available and dhcp not enabled even though it's enabled in my lan settings. I'm running a 24 hour line monitor and I'm showing 90 percent plus packet loss, and the pings to the monitor servers in California and Kansas are 3 to 4 ms's. I know the pings can't be right because I ping Los Angeles a couple of times a week and it's usually around 40 ms's. I hope I posted this in the right forum. I'm a newb here and the only other one I could think to post this in was hardware. The ping thing is bizarre and I'd like to fix this network adapter issue. I may have to wipe and reinstall or worse trash a new motherboard. Thanks again.

Is there a reason you want to use NAP. I would think the password would be for the admin account your on at the time of setting it up, unless you are making one for it at the time.

NAP clients are computers that report system health to a NAP enforcement point. A NAP enforcement point is a computer or network access device that can require the evaluation of a NAP client’s health state and optionally provide restricted network access or communication. NAP enforcement points can be IEEE 802.1X-capable switches or VPN servers, DHCP servers, or Health Registration Authorities (HRAs) that run Windows Server 2008 or Windows Server 2008 R2. The NAP health policy server is a computer running the Network Policy Server (NPS) service in Windows Server 2008 or Windows Server 2008 R2 that stores health requirement policies and provides health evaluation for NAP clients. Health requirement policies are configured by the administrator and can include settings that require that NAP client computers have the latest antivirus definitions and security updates installed, a personal firewall enabled, and other settings.

My computer is hardwired to the modem. Another computer in the home uses a wireless connection.

A week ago both computers were being used online. Both computers lost internet connections suddenly.
Our service provider instructed me to connect the hardwired pc to the router instead of the modem.

The wireless connection was restored but the wired pc still wasn't making a connection.
I wasn't able to start my antivirus either(the desktop shortcut to my A/V program is a dead link (nothing happens) and the desktop icon for the A/V link is now just white (it doesn't pick up the icon provided by the A/V program)

I always use trials of top A/V programs (of course, only one at a time = Avira,AVG,Avast)

I managed to scan with Windows Defender). It showed 0 detections. I noticed Defender's last update was in July, and for a few months hadn't been able to turn Defender on (although I ran it a few days ago.)

The wireless has connectivity.

There are no indicators of network adapter problems shown in Device Manager

I booted into safe mode but still no connection

I have used a restore point to a time a week before this problem but still no internet access.

I don't think my adapter card went out(considering both pcs lost connectivity and the wireless also was out last week until our service provider asked me to connect the wired pc to the router.

The Internet port on the router is wired to one of the LAN ports of the moden.

A:Solved: Help! Windows couldn't bind IP protocol stack to the network adaptor

Sate of connection = red 'x' over network tray icon.

Can't connect through wireless or wired connection. If I try automatic troubleshooting, it says it couldn't identify the problem. I've tried Googling for a while, and have tried Winsock/Winsock2 reg key deletes, several netsh cmd resets, uninstalled and reinstalled hardware/routers (through software, not physically).

In device manager, I have the Realtek PCIe FE Family Controller and Realtek RTL8191SE 802.11b/g/n WiFi Adapter both running (supposedly). Initially, they both had caution symbols on them, but i uninstalled/reinstalled, and now they are clear of symbols. In "IPConfig", the only thing that appears are 2 VMware Network Adapters (they are supposed to be there) and a "Tunnel adapter Teredo Tunneling Pseudo-Interface" - not sure what that is.

Something else is definitely a major problem: When I open up "System Information", then navigate through Components>Network>Protocol, the entire list, which should have 10 items, is empty.

Any ideas?

Edit: This laptop's networking has been fine for the past 18 months I've had it. I usually leave it on, but turn it off a couple times a week. Yesterday, I turned it off and had it off for about 10-12 hours. When I turned it back on, the connection was not working and the above issues arose.

Hello Lenovo Experts! Brand new L380 Yoga requested BIOS update after the first reboot. It seems it did not complete the procedure properly, possibly because it happened in midst of W10 update cycle. After seeing BIOS flashing messages during boot it turned off and that was the last of it. Now, when i power it up it only makes funky short beeps, that can be repeated with the Fn key. Lenovo diagnostics app is unable to decode them properly. Screen does not turn on. Only FnLock  and keyboard illumination seems to function. Besides that the laptop is reduced to a sad instrument capable of playing one not so catchy tune... I'll add a capture of it to the message for your enjoyment. I would like to know if this model has a failsafe to reimage bios or is my only option to have the system board replaced through the warranty service.

Windows Update keeps trying to update Office 2003.
I have a trial version of Office 2003 that came with my computer.
I do not want it at this time, but I may want it at some point in the future.
I don't know if it can be hidden from the Windows update but if not, I am not sure how to fully get rid of it.
It has never been "installed."
Windows update fails every time, of course, because it isn't now nor has it ever been installed.
The biggest problem is that it keeps trying to apply the same updates over and over and over. It slows down the shutdown as it repeats the attempt(s) 3 times before each shutdown and also it keeps downloading the same and or other Windows Updates for Office 2003.
1 - Can Windows Update be configured to leave my Trial version of Office 2003 alone?
2 - If not, how can I get rid of the Office 2003 trial version.
Obviously uninstall is out of the question.
3 - Once it is gone, do I need to do anything with regards to Windows Update?

Windows XP SP2
Compaq Presario
3200+ AMD Athlon XP
512MB Ram

Thank you


A:Windows Update Tries to update trial version of Office

If you uninstall the "enhanced" Windows update, it should only try to update Windows, not other Microsoft applications.

Why is uninstalling Office 2003 not possible?

I'd appreciate some help. I'm a computer dunce, and I don't know what I did to my system.

I run Windows 7 on a Toshiba Satellite with a Realtek wireless card. I ran ad-aware to clean up my system. It brought up a list of many proposed changes (cookies, registry), and I approved it without looking closely.

After it removed the problems, my wireless internet ceased to function, but the ethernet cable still works. The Windows diagnostic states:

"The Windows wireless service is not running on this computer."


"Windows couldn't automatically bind the IP protocol stack to the network adapter."

I downloaded and ran the most current drivers from Realtek and the Windows Update, and nothing changed. I've read some posts where people think this kind of thing is a registry problem, but I have no idea.

Any ideas?

Hi -

Run Windows System Restore - choose a restore point prior to the running of Ad-Aware -
START | type rstrui

Remove Ad-Aware from your system.

Install MSE --> http://www.microsoft.com/security_essentials/

I registered to forums to get help to solve wireless adapter issue I am having.

I have been looking for help in Lenovo forums and AV provider: problem is still on.


I changed AV software from Symantec to F-Secure. I uninstalled Symantec software and installed F-Secure software. Laptop is Lenovo T520.

What happened

First I recognized that ping commands caused Windows to crash. Then I uninstalled some VPN softwares and ping started to work. Operation did something to wireless and LAN connections, they did not work anymore.

LAN started to work by removing LAN drivers from device manager and reboot. After reboot Windows reinstalled LAN drivers and LAN was ok.

Wireless is a pain in there. I have tried almost everything. All Lenovo provided network softwares and power management tools are uninstalled and reinstalled together with wireless drivers. Wireless driver is not recognized by Windows.

None of automatic repairs or wifi uninstallation operations have corrected problem.

I collected some logs which might help, but now I do not know how to proceed. Windows reinstallation is something which I do not want to do.


Device Manager

Device Manager has "Intel(R) Centrino(R) Wireless-N 1000 #2.

There are no devices with exclamation marks.

A:Wifi adapter could not bind IP protocol stack to network adapter

Hi Ron, Welcome to Sevenforums.

Try this to start

Control Panel > Administration Tools > Computer Management > Services & Applications > Services.

Scroll down this list to find 'WLAN Auto Config'

Double click on 'WLAN Auto Config' On the general tab, select from the start up type drop down menu, select 'Automatic'. Under Service Status click on 'Start'. Then 'Apply' these settings and exit from all open control panel windows.

This should then allow Windows to set the required bindings.
