Are you running Windows Server 2000?

If so - this is a well known problem with 2000.

When you have a server running Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol (DHCP) or Dynamic DNS (DDNS), the Internet Connection Sharing (ICS) service may not function correctly or may cause some services to stop working. In addition, various error messages may be displayed.

To resolve this issue, do not run the ICS service on a DHCP or DDNS server. NAT (which is installed using routing protocols in the Routing and Remote Access Service (RRAS) snap-in) works correctly if you do not enable the DNS Proxy service or the DHCP allocator.

What is nap server?

Network Access Protection (NAP) is a Microsoft technology for controlling network access of a computer host based on the system health of the host, first introduced in Windows Server 2008.
With Network Access Protection, system administrators of an organization's computer network can define policies for system health requirements. Examples of system health requirements are whether the computer has the most recent operating system updates installed, whether the computer has the latest version of the anti-virus software signature, or whether the computer has a host-based firewall installed and enabled. Connecting or communicating computers have their health status evaluated. Computers that comply with system health requirements have full access to the network. Administrators can configure health policies that make it possible to ensure that computers not in compliance with system health requirements have restricted access to the network.

    How to enable ics in windows xp? what changes we hava to do in dsl properties?

    You need firewall functions enabled, then go to Connections -> DSL -> Properties -> Advanced and check the box "Internet connection sharing".

    You will need another network from which the connections come, that will be routed through the DSL connection. Select this network in the drop down box just below. I expect it will be something like, "LAN Connection #1" or such.

    The other machines shall have to be configured to have the DSL'ed PC as gateway. In the LOCAL network connection properties of the DSL'ed PC, check the IP address assigned to it. Then in all the other PC's local conn properties, put the DSL'ed PC IP address as gateway.

    I need to close over 900 finder windows all at once. I was selecting approx 950 folders in the finder to transfer from one external hard drive to another and I accidentally opened all of the folders in...

    What if you use system restore from safe mode or another admin account to restore the system back to a previous state. You could choose the last restore point available.
    You don't mention what OS you're using, but I suspect this would work...see instructions here.
    Or, you could press F8 at boot and try Last known good configuration. If that doesn't work, try booting with selective services enabled and only allow basic startup services to boot. Then you could use something like this to close all the applications....

    I hope this information allows you to resolve this issue. If you need further assistance, please post back with a comment to this thread.
