go to control panel and then choose the network and internet connections and then choose the network connections in that window you can see the internet/network connection icons ->choose the properties by left click then goto->networking ->choose the options which you want .but disabling tcp/ip causes your computer from transfering datas from other computers even through internet.

hey i know dat TCP/IP is an integral part of XP.
but i just don't want it to work and an enduser shuld not be able to enable it. It can b done by editing the registry value. unfortunately i lot it. that is what i am looking for.

Why play with the registry to do this?

Merely disable it through the normal means of control>network connections.

Keep in mind that you need admin rights to change network protocols with XP, so if you don't want an end user to be able to change it...simply deny them those rights.

(or if you are paranoid, change the admin password!).
