Internet Connection Sharing STILL disabled.

I have two PC networked using Windows 98SE, the host connected to ‘blueyonder’ cable broadband internet. This was working well using ‘MS Internet Explorer’ (IE) until suddenly, the ‘Internet Connection Sharing’ for the second PC became disabled have not got a firewall.
Comparing this PC with the host PC, I checked the following;
1. IE in Tools/Internet Options/Connections - the ‘Local Area Network (LAN) settings - Sharing…’ button was not shown.
2. Control Panel/Add-Remove Programs/Windows Setup/Internet Tools/the Components: Internet Connection Sharing check box was not selected. Selecting produced message; “Internet configuration is not complete. Please install your network hardware before Internet Connection Sharing”.
3. Control Panel/Systems/Device Manager/Network adapters – “This Device is working properly” except the host shows ‘Internet Connection Sharing’?
The LAN cards must be installed, as I do have ‘Network Neighborhood’ functioning? I next tried the ‘Browser Connection Setup Wizard’ file; icsclset.exe’ to reconfigure ‘Internet Connection Sharing’, no joy?
Except for removing the card physically from the second PC, I don’t know what to do next, help please.
