Strange behavior after Windows Update

By Cricket_Moon ·
Updated my Windows 2000 Adv. Server last night with yesterday's patches. But, now, when I go into my TCP/IP settings to change my ip address, it shows that the server is DHCP. I change it back to static, type everything in correctly, reboot, and take a look...the screen shows DHCP. sigh What the heck is going on? And how do I fix it?

I tried to turn it off when I assigned it a static IP address...

btw,
the patches should be in add/remove programs.
You could remove them too, to bring it back in the original state before yesterday.

No not dumb. I simply misunderstood. Sorry. I did try, but it made no difference. :-(

I recall this problem more or less,
remove the protocols tcp/ip.
(i don't recall quite well to remove the nic too).
and reboot and reinstall them back again.

I think the socket program and the tcp/ip stack are related, sounds like a corrupted protocol.
re:the eventviewer thats strange.

Removing TCP/IP did not help, neither did removing the NIC. Thank you, though
