"Standard TCP/IP port" option missing when adding printer

I am trying to add a TCP/IP printer but it looks to be missing the "Standard TCP/IP port" option in the drop down list when adding printer through local port. I dont have any idea why it is missing on this computer. Do you think its a driver issue? Can you tell me how to restore it? Thanks.

Can you check your bios settings to see what its set to? What operating system with SP do you have? Do you have any antivirus software installed on your computer? How is the printer connected to the pc?

Can you check whether the below files are still there in the %windir%\system32 directory:
tcpmon.dll
tcpmon.ini
tcpmonui.dll
tcpmib.dll

If you can see the same files then copy the below lines to a file with the extension .reg. After that launch it and it will try to re-add the monitor entries to the registry. Then reboot the pc and you should be able to add the standard tcp/ip ports again

Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00 [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Print\Monitors\Standard TCP/IP Port] "Driver"="tcpmon.dll" [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Print\Monitors\Standard TCP/IP Port\Ports] "LprAckTimeout"=dword:000000b4 "StatusUpdateInterval"=dword:0000000a "StatusUpdateEnabled"=dword:00000001
