Qos

While taking the speed up your computer class from C-net I followed the instruction to change the setting on QoS. Now I get an error message saying "Run -time error -2147418113 Automation error Catastrophic failure" My computer won't respond after this message pops up. How can I get it back to the original setting? Thanks in advance for any help !! I am using XP pro.

Frankly, there is no payoff here. Read http://support.microsoft.com/kb/316666

"Correction of some incorrect claims about Windows XP QoS support
There have been claims in various published technical articles and newsgroup postings that Windows XP always reserves 20 percent of the available bandwidth for QoS. These claims are incorrect. The information in the "Clarification about QoS in end computers that are Running Windows XP" section correctly describes the behavior of Windows XP systems."

The registry key in question and what value should be there.

Should be enough to put it back?

The second article shows that there is no payoff to adjusting this.

A little confuser for some.

While you are not sharing the gritty details (how you changed, how you looked at it, what it changed to, etc.) I wonder if this is just a display issue. That is, the registry is in some decimal number and the display is in percent, BTUs per fort night or other.

This usually doesn't affect the machine like this. I would be looking at some winsock hijacker. Here's the full sixpack discussion at this link.
