No need, just untick the box next to TCP/IP Protocol in the Properties of the Connection in Properties of 'My Network Places'.

The uninstall feature is greyed out in XP and impossible to remove as its a core feature of the OS. Its used for LANS, DIAL UP and so on.

Hi, i 100% agree wid u dat TCP/IP is a core component of the operating system and there for no option to uninstall it. But editing a registry value u can disable TCP/IP from windows XP. I did it. unfortunately i forgot it. that is what now i am very badly looking for.

Here are some ideas:
1) You can play around with the setting in the reg key: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\Tcpip\Linkage and maybe get tcp/ip not to bind to anything.

2) If TCP/IP is removed then XP will not be able to talk with other machines or really do anything on the network. So why not just remove the NIC or disable the NIC in the bios if it is on the motherboard. If it is an office environment you could make the network jack that the machine uses a dead jack by unplugging it in the cerntal area.

3) You could use TCP/IP filtering and choose permit only for TCP and then don't enter any ports. If the user is not an admin, they will be unable to edit the properties of the Local Area Connection and won't be able to turn filtering off.

4)Alternately, you could set a bogus TCP/IP address with a 255.255.255.255 subnet mask and set its gateway as the same as the IP. This was TCP/IP is enabled, but the packets won't go anywhere.

Good luck,
Chris Britt
