I have my windows XP installed with SP2. I would like to run the nmap on 
this machine. I have carefully followed every instruction in your nmap 
website. When i issue the command nmap scanme.insecure.org, I have found 
an error from the program "Note: Host seems down. If it is really 
up........ "

I tried to use it to scan some internal machines within my subnet  and I 
have got the same error message. So it should not be related to the 
router problem. I followed the advice to use -P0 option but then the 
progam just hang there.

I use it to scan
it returned with error "rawrecv_open: SIO_RCVALL failed (10022) on 
device loopback0"

I have installted the latest WinPcap packet capture library *version 
*I tried to disable the XP Firewall but the results are the same.

My nmap is the latest version of 3.81 in zip format.
I have also installed the Windows Network Monitor Driver Protocol

What can I do?
