    Need to RE-install Dial-up Networking??

    After a Disaster Recovery from my Backup Tape, I keep getting this error message
    in the System Log when I boot into W2K SP2:

    Event Type: Error
    Event Source: Rasman
    Event Category: None
    Event ID: 20027
    Date: 11/29/2001
    Time: 11:46:33 AM
    User: N/A
    Computer: SCHNEIER
    Remote Access Connection Manager failed to start because NDISWAN could not
    be opened. Restart the computer. The system cannot find the file specified.

    0000: 02 00 00 00 ....

    My ISP told me that the error message in the log plus the error message I get
    when I use my analog modem to Dial-up to the Internet-- Error6 : the Handle is
    invalid means I have to re-install the Dial-up because it is corrupted. However, since
    my DSL, Static IP connection is working fine, I don't won't to corrupt that connection
    just to get the analog modem connection working since I only use it if the DSL is
    down and using pcAnywhere works fine.

    Any suggestions?

    For some reasons, your ndiswan.sys file was not properly restored. Try to re-install SP2 or restore it manually from WINNTServisePackFilesi386 to
    WINNTSystem32dllcache AND

    A good place to look for help on Event IDs is
    Click on Search Database and enter 20027 and it gives a couple of possible causes and solutions as well as a reference to Microsoft Knowledge Base article Q117304
