Doing it any other way destroys the TCPIP stack somehow. You could also try running an upgrade install of your current OS. It won't delete your programs, but it sometimes resets Windows. You might even try installing Windows driver for Novell, that sometimes cures the problem. You can remove it later. You did not say which version of windows this is.
