<div align="left"><br/>
<div align="left"><font face="Arial"><span style="font-size:10pt">I still can't get NMap running on 
XP. I have posted this before. Since then I 
downloaded the files again (in case of corruption) removed, reinstalled, rebooted etc 
etc. This post has the same problem and I contacted the author who had not been 
successful in getting NMap to run. I am not a clueless newbie although I am starting 
to feel like one and the email below certainly reads like one. </span></font></div>
<div align="left"><br/>
<div align="left"><font face="Arial"><span style="font-size:10pt">Anyway, my NMap error message is consistent 
and quite clear. </span></font></div>

<div align="left"><font face="Times New Roman"><span style="font-size:10pt">&quot; The Netgroup Packet 
Filter service fai led to start due to the following&#160; error: The system 
cannot find the path specified.&#160; &quot; </span></font></div>
<div align="left"><br/>
<div align="left"><font face="TAHOMA"><span style="font-size:10pt">Perhaps I am installing incorrectly. 
? Or just missing something super duper basic 
that would brand me as a newbie for life :-)&#160; </span></font></div>
<div align="left"><font face="TAHOMA"><span style="font-size:10pt">I RTFM, double checked, even ran 
registry monitor app and that dang file just isn't 
being found. </span></font></div>
<div align="left"><font face="TAHOMA"><span style="font-size:10pt">If someone would be kind enough to 
write step by newbie step instructions for 
install under XP so I can check that I am not missing something incredibly basic it 
would be greatly appreciated. WinGrab is very useful for repetitive screenshots such 
as these. http://home.no.net/wingrab/ Yes, I realise that the instructions are clear 
enough on the homepage but something just ain't right .... please don't make it be 
me ;-[ oh ... the shame ... the shame .... </span></font></div>
<div align="left"><br/>
<div align="left"><font face="TAHOMA"><span style="font-size:10pt">BTW I have a legitimate reason for 
wanting this to run. 30% of my ISP bill every 
month is kiddie scripters and annoying probes. No penetrations for over 12 months 
but something must be attracting them to my IP. </span></font></div>
