When I try to open my Network Connections I get an error message "The Network Connections Folder was unable to retrieve the list of Network adapters on your machine. Please make sure that the Network Connections Service is enabled and running"... I went to the services (services.msc) and saw that the service was set to manual and stopped. So I brought up the properties and set to "automatic" and then tried to start the service... however, I got the following error message "Could not start the Network Connections service on Local Computer. Error 127: The specifies procedure could not be found".
The path to executable in the properties of the Network Connections service is "C:\WINDOWS\System32\svchost.exe -k netsvcs". In the Dependecies it states that this service is dependent on Remote Procedure Call (RPC)... I checked and it is set to "automatic" and is started.
Any ideas on why this isn't working?
