How can I stop my machine complaining about NWLNKRIP service not starting?

A. A. This service relies on NWLNKIPX and if this is not running the service cannot start. NWLNKRIP is installed if the machine is running NetWare protocol but if you don't want the service perform the following to stop it trying to start.

  1. Start the registry editor
  2. Move to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\NwlnkRip
  3. Double click on Start
  4. Change to 4 and click OK
  5. Close the registry editor
  6. Reboot the machine
