When I try to open my control panel, I get an error message referring to C:Windows\system32\netsetup.cpl. Can someone tell me what this is and how to get rid of it. I can click on cancel many times and it won't go away unless I restart my computer.
I clean my computer regularly with Xoft and Spy Bot.
Thanks for any help. :tazz:

Hi goofygrmom...Welcome to G2G!

Try Windows Update...Sounds like you need the .Net Framework update. Go to the Windows Update page and choose the "Custom" option rather than Express...If .Net Framework shows in the resulting list, download and install it.

By unchecking the IPmon32 in the Startup, it eliminates the netsetup.cpl error message.

This can be done by going to Start| Run
type in MSCONFIG

Click the Startup tab

uncheck IPMON32

click Apply

Restart your computer

put a check mark in the Remember my selection and click Apply Changes

Hi Wannabe1. I just checked the windows update, both express and custom. The netframework was NOT listed. And I don't know what the IPMON32 is that dagger recomended is. What now???
Thanks for your help.

goofygrmom...

IPmon32 is a quality control application used by Verizon. It is not necesary on most machines and can be safely disabled. The instructions provided by dagger should help. I just like to cover all the bases... :tazz:
