Hello.

Just when i thought i got it covered then another error shows up... the latest, I can't figure out... I will narrate...

late last night, I was surfing then my computer acted up... thinking that the system might be overheating from excessive use, I shut it down and gave it atleast two hours of rest... when I turned it on, still with slow performance but this time no more lan connection icon on system tray... went to network connections and the whole window is blank, every connection is missing (no net connection icons).... tried to make a connection, error pops up saying possible low on memory, low diskspace and check Network connection service... reinstalled the adapter under device manager but with no luck... did the network diagnosis... it says WMI error.... checked the services and it looks fine, i mean it's running... when i clicked on dependencies... a message box appears.... Interface: Class not registered... I tried other services and they all show the same error.... don't know what to do next... please, please, please help....

i'm running a windows xp sp2 system....
thank you in advance...

You mentioned that this is the last of a series of errors. Did you solve them with G2G (or another forum)? Could you give us a link to the previous problem(s)?

If you have XP installation cd you may try a repair installation. You can approach a good G2G guide from the link in my signature. Please note that repair installation is not always successfull and can even end with more troubles then you strted with. To give it a better chance I suggest that before you run it you would be better off doing these preliminary steps.

1: Run disk cleanup
2: run a thorough scan with your antivirus and other antimalware programs.
3: run disk defragmantation.
4: disconnect your computer from the modem
5: disable antimalware programs that run in the background.
6: perform repair installation.

Good luck

Hi The Skeptic,

I was hoping this wouldn't come to that... well, you go to do what you got to do, right...
I have a question.. Now this may sound stupid so please indulge me... :)
My laptop didn't go with an xp installation disk but a product key sticker is attached on the back panel...

1. Is this key the same with the cd key?
2. If so, can I use a different xp disc then put in the product key that came with the laptop?
3. Should I uninstall Xp sp2 update first before I proceed with the repair installation...

again, thank you....

Legally you can use another xp cd, run a repair and use the prodct key on your computer. The problem is that laptops come with OEM versions of XP. These are modified versions that include the special drivers required for your specific machine. If you use another version it will probably not work. However, you can give it a try. If the cd you use has an incompatible version the repair won't work, probably.

Do not remove SP-2. Use a disk that sp-2 is already part of it.

I don't have sp2, tried looking and i can't find one either... Only disc i have is windows xp prof installtion... Drivers isn't my main concern right now or should it be?... I figured I can download everest home and get the drivers online... can I use that particular version of xp? should I uninstall sp2 for repair installation with a xp sp1 cd? If the repair doesn't work, I would then install a fresh copy, would my laptop cd key allow completion of installation and validate version of windows, I mean i don't want to end up with a pirated version of windows....

thanks the skeptic...

Try to run the repair and see if it works. If SP2 was installed as an update and not as an integral part of your xp version it will be removed during the repair together with all other windows updates. All these should be reinstalled manually or by automatic windows updates.

If the original installation included sp2 then your repair will not work. Just try and see what happens.

Hello koko_crunch

the names Andre :) and i was wandering if you fixed the missing network icon yet if not then let me know and i can chat with you, i also have made a messenger out of cmd so if you want to im then send your ip to andregramlich@ymail.com or look for me on y messenger and ad me and we can chat that way

either way is fine that way i can walk you through some stuff

but just in case you have not fixed the problem i have three methods that might work for you

Method One:
Windows can automatically detect and install the correct network adapters for you. It will also correct any corrupted registry entries on the network adapter.

To direct Windows to automatically detect and install network adapters for you, follow these steps:
Right-click My Computer, and then click Properties.
Click the Hardware tab, and then click Device Manager.
To see a list of installed network adapters, expand Network adapter(s). Click to locate the network adapter, and then click Uninstall.
Restart the computer, and then let the system automatically detect and install the network adapter drivers.

Method Two:
Network settings such as adapter settings, services settings, the logon setting, the desktop interaction setting, and networking services settings enable you to use your computer to connect to a network. If these settings are incorrect, network connectivity issues can occur.

To verify network settings and services, follow these steps:
Verify that the correct network adapter is selected. A network adapter is a device that enables you to connect a computer to a network. It is also known as a network interface card (NIC).
Right-click My Computer, click Properties, click the Hardware tab, and then click Device Manager.
Double-click Network adapters, and then verify that the correct network adapter name is selected. If you do not know the name of your network adapter, don't worry. For now, just make sure that an adapter is selected.
Double-click the network adapter, and then verify that the "This device is working properly" message appears in the Device status box on the General tab. If you do not see this message, click Troubleshoot, and follow the directions.
After you confirm that the correct network adapter is selected and is working properly, you can close all the open dialog boxes.
Verify that the necessary services are started. The Services settings simply direct the system to stop, start, and administer system services.
Right-click My Computer, and then click Manage.
Double-click Services and Applications, and then click Services.
In the right pane, look at the Status column. You may need to expand the box so that you can see all the columns. Make sure that the following services are started:
Remote procedure call (RPC)
(This service must be started before other services can take effect.).
Network Connections
(This service can only start if the RPC service is active.)
Plug and Play
COM+ Event System
(This service can only start if the RPC service is active.)
Remote Access Connection Manager
(This service can only start if Telephony service is active.)
Telephony
(This service can only start if the RPC service and the PnP Service are active.
To start a service, right-click the service name, and then click Start.
Do not close the Computer Management box because you will need to check additional settings in the remaining steps.
Verify the logon setting.
In the right pane, double-click COM+ Event System service.
Click the Log On tab.
Under Log on as, verify that the Local System account is selected.
Verify the desktop interaction setting.
Double-click the Network Connections service.
Click the Log On tab.
Under Log on as, verify that the Local System Account option is selected.
Verify that the Allow service to interact with desktop check box is selected, and then click OK.
Close the Computer Management box.
Verify the network services setting.
Click Start, and then click Control Panel.
Double-click Add or Remove Programs.
Click Add/Remove Windows Components.
Scroll down and then click Networking Services, and then click Details. Verify that Simple TCP/IP Services is turned on, and then click OK.
Close all the open dialog boxes.
Verify that the network DLL files are registered correctly. DLL files are small files that include a library of functions and data that can be shared across multiple applications.
Click Start, and then click Run.
In the Run box, type cmd.exe, and then click OK.
Type the following lines. Press ENTER after you type each line. This command text is difficult to type. Be sure that you type it exactly as it appears below. Or you may find it easier to copy and paste the text instead. Click OK when the RegSvr32 dialog box appears for each command.

regsvr32 netshell.dll
regsvr32 netcfgx.dll
regsvr32 netman.dll
Restart the computer. Check to see whether your networking icons appear. If this method worked for you, you are finished with this article.

Method Three:
A driver is software that allows your computer to communicate with hardware or devices. If you have an out-of-date driver installed, it may not be compatible with the latest Windows Service Pack. You can correct this incompatibility by checking to see if a driver update is available.

To check to see if a new network adapter driver is available, follow these steps:
Click Start, point to All Programs, and then click Windows Update.
Click Custom Install, and then click Select optional hardware update.
Look for the network adapter name, and then install any available hardware updates. If you do not find the driver listed, you may want to check the manufacturer's Web site for more information.
Restart the computer if you were prompted to install hardware updates.
Check to see whether your networking icons appear. If this method worked for you, you are finished with this article. However, you might want to read the "Prevention tips" section to avoid this problem in the future.

If this method did not work for you, you can try Method 4.

Method Four:
This setting tells the computer how you want it to authenticate who can connect to a network. This method sounds more intimidating than what it really is. The DCOM Config utility has a point-and-click interface, and you just need to follow the steps, and it will do the "dirty" work for you.

Before you get started, you will need to make sure that you are logged on to the computer by using an administrator account. With an administrator account, you can make changes to your computer that you cannot make with any other account, such as a standard account. If you are using your own computer, chances are that you are logged on with an administrator account.

If you are unsure whether you have administrative user rights, follow these steps. Otherwise, go to step 1.
Open the Date and Time Properties dialog box.
Click Start, and then click Run.
In the Open box, type timedate.cpl, and then press ENTER.
Now determine whether you are logged on with an administrator account.
If the Date and Time Properties dialog box opened after you performed step 1, you are logged on as a computer administrator. Close the Date and Time Properties dialog box, and then continue with this method.
If you received the following message, you are not logged on as an administrator:
You do not have the proper privilege level to change the system time.
To continue with this task, you must first log off, and then log back on to Windows by using a computer administrator account. If you do not know how to log back on to Windows by using a computer administrator account, you might have to ask someone for help. If this computer is part of a network at work, you can ask the system administrator for help. However, if you have to perform this task on a home computer that is not part of a network, you must know the password for an administrator account on your computer.

if you have to goto the start menu goto the run program and in the open box type in either cmd or command
then when in command prompt type in net user
then type in net user Admin
then type net user Admin *
note: hold shift and hit the 8 under the f keys should be located under f8 and f9
it will then say
the administrators name
C:\Documents and Settings\***********************>net user
type password for User:

(note the password will not show its self as you type as a safety pro-cation so i suggest if you do this type one letter and use it to log in
To run the Dcomcnfg.exe utility to rest the Default Impersonation Level setting, follow these steps:
Click Start, and then click Run.
Type dcomcnfg, and then click OK.
In Component Services, click Computers, right-click the computer whose machine-wide impersonation level that you want to modify (for example, My Computer), and then click Properties.
Click the Default Properties tab, and then click to select the Enable Distributed COM on this computer check box for this computer.
Click the down arrow in the Default Impersonation Level box, and then click any setting other than Anonymous, and then click OK.

The new machine-wide impersonation level is available the next time that you start a program. Programs that are currently running are not affected until you restart them.

Check to see whether your networking icons appear. If this method worked for you, you are finished with this article.

If this method did not work for you, you can try Method 5.

Method Five:
Try adding a standard modem. Often, just the process of adding a new modem causes the connection icons to reappear. To add a standard modem, complete these steps:
Click Start, and then click Control Panel.
If it is not already selected, click Switch to Classic View. This option appears on the left side of Control Panel.
Double-click Phone and Modem Options.
Click Modems, and then click Add. The Add Hardware Wizard starts.
Click to select the Don't detect my modem I will select it from a list check box, and then click Next.
Select a standard modem from the list on the left, and then click Next. When the icons reappear, you can safely delete the modem that you added in this procedure.

and thats all i have for answers right now if you got it fixed then no prob if this helped then let me know
