Hi, Broni.

No, I don't need it, but when I tried to uninstall it, it wouldn't allow it because it said it might be needed for bootup.

Then I went to DOS and tried your command and it said netcfg was not recognized as an internal or external commnand.

At the DOS prompt I typed:

netcfg -e -u ms_sstpminiport

I'll keep trying to research it on my end.

If you think of anything else, please let me know.

Thanks.

Quintuple Eureka! All 5 problems are solved.

Here's how I solved the last one about the WAN Miniport.

1) In control panel, open Network Connections.
2) Right-click on your connection and select Properties.
3) In the General Tab, I had Client for MS Networks, File and Print Sharing for MS Networks, Internet Protocol (TCP/IP), and QoS.
4) QoS was the culprit. Select Qos and then Uninstall it. Reboot and the WAN Miniport with yellow exclamation point should no longer appear in Device Manager.

I'll post a message after this, wrapping the entire thread up.

This thread helped me solve 5 problems. So for future people reading this, these are the 5 problems this thread solved:

1) Disabling Profile Storage Space Quota
2) Fixing problem with auto-updates and manual updates
3) Fixing missing Security Tab
4) Fixing Yellow Question Mark on SM Bus entry in Device Manager
5) Fixing Yellow Exclamation Point on WAN Miniport entry in Device Manager

And there you have it. A thread well worth reading. :)

I would like to thank Broni and wannabe1 for their time, effort, and help in solving all these problems.

Thank you very much; it is appreciated. :)

Hi, Broni.

We spent a few days on everything, but really accomplished a lot and I learned a lot, too. Plus, it was fun. :)

Thanks, again. I'm sure I'll be back.

Hi guys, Just registered and I,m brand new to all this and not very computer literate, I've got exact same problem Dom Fontana had, printed off the instuctions from wannabe1 and Broni but have got stuck very early on. Went to start, clicked on run typed in group policy editor.msc and clicked ok, a window opens with blue bar along the top which says C:\WINDOWS\system32\cmd.exe then C:\documents and Settings\Stephen Lees with a blinking cursor in the main window,what do I do now?

Hi, Quagga.

I just want to make sure. Did you type "gpedit.msc" (without the quotes) into the Run command?

Yes Dom, tried it again now I cant even get the original box to appear, just keeps saying windows cannot find gpedit.msc make sure you typed name correctly? A friend has a disc with windows vista on and says I should install it, is this a good idea?

It's to your advantage, so you'll get more attention.
Better than hijacking someone else's thread.
