"Connect to a network" window won't open

Hi!

Since installing some windows vista updates, the " Connect to a network " window won't open (no matter how I try to open it).
Everything else in the network menu works fine.
It's not a modem problem either because I can see the available networks
with another software.
Still, I prefer to use the Vista software.
I have tried setting back to the last restore point but it hasn't helped.
I have seen in the net that some other people are having this problem to but I haven't found a solution.

Thank you!

Hi arcadia78,

Thanks for using the Answers Forum.

Are you on a home or business network?
The other software for your phone, does it allow you to connect to the Internet through your computer or connect your computer through your phones connection to the Internet?

I ask because if your using the phone to connect to the Internet through a cellular network, it's going to modify your network settings.

When you uninstalled the software, I was suggesting testing the computers Internet connection before your re-installed it to see if it was changing your settings.
;)

If none of that is helping, you can try using the System File Checker to look for missing or corrupted files.
The System File Checker tool
To determine whether the issue that you are experiencing is caused by one or more system files that are used by Windows Vista, run the System File Checker tool.
The System File Checker tool scans system files and replaces incorrect versions of the
system files by using the correct versions.


To run the System File Checker tool, follow these steps:
1.     Click Start, and then type
cmd in the Start Search box.

2.     Right-click cmd in the
Programs list, and then click Run as administrator .
If you are prompted for an administrator password or confirmation, type your password or click
Continue
3.     At the command prompt, the following line, and then press ENTER:
sfc /scannow

Hope this helps.
