Windows 7: No network connection with VMware Player?

No network connection with VMware Player?


Would like some advice please,

I have been using vmware player for just a few weeks and have had no problem with network connection up until last week when I did some changes (Windows re-activation and removals using 'Hijack This'. I have obviously deleted lots of stuff I am not suppose to delete as I have had nothing but pc problems ever since.

My host machine is Windows XP SP3
Guest OS is Scientific Linux

When I go to verify which processes are running it only shows vmnat.exe running but not vmnetdhcp.exe so I try to see if I can install vmnetdhcp.exe but get the pop-up window message "DllRegisterServer entry point was not found".

I am new to all of this and certainly not tech savvy so if someone would be kind enough to suggestion where I should go from here that will be much appreciated thanks.....

Best advise would be to uninstall VMware player and reinstall it. Your VM is a seperate file and be remounted
