What type of NIC is this?

First, uninstall all networking, NIC installed software, and device drivers (verify removal from device manager). Shutdown and remove the PCI ethernet card from your machine. Power on.

All of those errors should then disappear. Remove MSN (Microsoft Network) from your PC, also. Unless you're trying to preserve some kind of nostalgia, it's not doing anything productive for your machine. Let us know when you can boot normally without errors and without networking installed.

Thanks for your reply

Might seem a stupid question but how do it remove Microsoft Network? I don't see it in the list of windows components?

Also, If i can I would like to keep the LAN card as we some times have little (non internet facing) LAN gaming sessions.

The card is a Realtek RTL8139/810X series

You can keep the card, but first we want to make sure your system will be OK before continuing to the next step. So, make sure you can power on the system and it starts normally with all networking and related software/hardware uninstalled.

Delete the MSN/Microsoft Network icon off of your desktop. You'll be prompted some blather about it can't go to the recycle bin. Click OK. If you don't have any add/remove optional components related to MSN/Microsoft Network/Networking, then great --> Continue.

If any software related to the NIC was installed from Add/Remove Control Panel or from your start menu with an uninstall process, use this to remove the drivers/software for the Realtek card. Don't reboot. Shutdown instead and remove the Realtek card.

Before continuing, make sure you don't have any other networking component installed which you are using for some other function (like a VPN adapter, NetBEUI, etc.) <-- MSN/Microsoft network MIGHT have components listed here if it was ever installed.

If you still have Network Neighborhood on your desktop, networking hasn't been completely removed. Rick click it, click properties, and remove any component you see remaining. Reboot.

Thank you for the advice. I can confirm that now after removing everything i could including the card, rebooting, then starting up again with the card in it and reinstalling the driver it is now working perfectly with no errors.

Thanks again! 😀
