    Default Internet sharing won't work

    I am running a home network, 2 XP Home connected via
    ethernet hub, trying to run the Network setup wizard
    results in failure as "Spooler SubSystem App encountered a
    problem". If I configure the LAN manually file sharing and
    printer sharing works fine. Then if I try and enable ICS
    on the modem dialup connection on the x.x.0.1 computer, i
    get the error message "cannot enable shared access, Error
    1061 the service cannot accept control messages at this
    time", after warning me that it will reconfigure the host
    LAN connection as x.x.0.1 (which it already is!)
    Doesn't matter if the x.x.0.2 computer is switched off,
    same response. Modem works fine, host computer will
    connect and surf without a problem, just refuses to share
    the connection.
    Anybody got any ideas what else to do?? Thanks.

    When you get that error 1061, type the following command at a command prompt
    and post the results

    sc queryex sharedaccess

    Is your computer set up to automatically log in?

    I'm not sure what you mean Ken, sorry, but XP starts up
    without a need for password, configured for only one user,
    and the ISP connection is via a dial-up modem connection
    with login/password saved in XP.

    I'm just saying that I have seen a problem where if the machine is set to
    skip the login screen and Messenger is in the startup group then
    occasionally the ICF/ICS will not start properly.

    Oh thanks, I'd removed Messenger from startup a long time
    ago after other problems!
