Uninstall MS Home Networking...

Post by Dave » Fri, 23 May 2003 14:31:40

I currently have a P3-933Mhz computer.  The system came from the factory
with Windows Me.  One of my ISP's is my cable company.  I hired a tech to
come and configure my computer and my children's computer's (Win 98 based)
to allow file and printer sharing.  In Feb 2003 I did a full install of Win
XP Pro.  I chose the standard options to let the setup wizard configure the
network.  Ever since I have done this, my programs take about 5 to 6 seconds
to launch.  Sometimes I have to re-double click on desktop icons.  Once the
programs are running, there performance is no problem.  The University that
I am attending has an alliance with MS.  I have Visual Studio.net and Office
XP Pro installed.  I have looked at the physical memory being used, and I
never get close to the maximum available.  I did not mention previously that
in November of last year that I upgraded to WinXP Home.  I was not having
the performance problems that I am having now.  I used the help & support
feature on my computer and was unable able to find out how to uninstall the
home networking.  After weighing the pro's and con's of home networking, I
would rather just write my data to a CD-RW on my machine and take it to
another computer.  Getting each of my computers internet access is not a
problem.  I was wandering if there is an easy way to do the uninstall or is
the networking the cause of the reduction in performance ???




1. installation for home pc use/uninstall for network installation?

I just upgraded to XP form Win 98se and now find that
somehow I think I have the software set to think the PC
is on a network, it wants passwords, etc. (although I can
click past this) and then it asks me to either insert
card or control/alt/delete to access the software

I guess the question(s) is: is there any going back so
that I don't have to do this all of the time? If so, I
have know clue as to where to start as I don't want to
mess around and lose the cable-internet connection

I tried to uninstall and reinstall but seemed to have
gotten the same results, although when Win 98 booted up,
it brought up a login/password screen, which I ignored by
not inputting a password.

the PC is connected to the internet via a cable router
which is connected to a cable modem. the pc has a network
card (which was installed for the cable modem) but I
don't think that this is a network (at least yet!)
