D'oh. I didn't see this email before I just answered the other one. For the
sake of completeness, please try the -pre9 release, but if you have manually
tried moving away from IRQ7 I guess it's probably not going to work. Pity.

Yes. Given that it looks like the -pre9 drivers won't make any difference,
please do the following (slightly more verbose than previous email as I was
hoping you wouldn't have to do it):

1. Remove xennet.sys from c:\windows\system32\drivers
2. Remove any oem.* files from C:\Windows\inf that contain the string
3. Remove HKLM\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\XenNet from the registry
4. Remove
E-BFC1-08002bE10318}\UpperFilters - it should contain xennet.sys only. If it
contains other things too then just delete the text xennet.sys from it.
5. Reboot

Please test on a non critical system first - I haven't tested the above
instructions myself!
