Hi There.

Thanks for the help.

I have a Dell laptop with XP PRO that went from stable to haywire after I treid installing a Linksys wireless card last week.

For example, when I would try to click on IIS Admin under SErvices, the management console would freeze. Also, whenever I would try to shut down my computer would prompt me to save a .msc file somewhere. In addition, I could no longer serve my own pages on the local intranet, though I did have internet browsing.

I had tried everything I could think of - uninstalling the wireless card did nothing, restarting the services, nothing, even system restore did not work. According to Ad-Aware and Microsoft Anti-Spyware and Norton's I am virus and malware free.

So I used the XP repair as outlined in the XP forum, and it seemed to wrk fine. But before I tried to connect to the internet to retrieve all microsfot's updates, I treid to turn on the firewall and nothing!
"Windows cannot start the ...Firewall Service"

Similar messages for the Securit Center and when I try to manually turn on the firewall for my Local Area Connection. ("An error occurred while Internet COnnection was being enabled")

In the Event Viewer>System the most confusing error is "Remote Access Connection Manager terminated with the following error: Access is denied"

Anybody have a guess as to what might be up?
(full disclosure: I posted this in Networking too, because I wasn't sure which one it fit better on)
