Cannot connect to Wifi network - "Identifying Network"

Q: Cannot connect to Wifi network - "Identifying Network"

I cannot connect to certain wireless networks.

- I can connect for example to wifi at my University or a public network such as The Cloud and even BT Open zone, all of these direct you to a page to logon - these work fine.
- I cannot connect to any other network, even if it is an Open network.
- I have endlessly searched Google and tried everything suggested on forums like this - however they were other peoples problems - this is the first time I have made a post.
- I have eventually caved and restored my laptop to Factory settings. The problem persists.

I have attached screen shots showing the exact problem and error messages.
Your help would be greatly appreciated.

- Connecting via cable works fine - I am using that method now.

Preferred Solution: Cannot connect to Wifi network - "Identifying Network"

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/directdownload.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Shaun, firstly: welcome to Sevenforums!

May I suggest downloading Revo uninstaller: Download Revo Uninstaller Freeware - Free and Full Download - Uninstall software, remove programs, solve uninstall problems and using it to remove your wireless driver and all bits of it. This is because the built in uninstaller doesn't often remove everything. Now go online (you mentioned connecting via LAN line works alright) and find your wireless adapter driver for your computer (should be on the manufacturer's website). Install it, enter the network password, and let me know if this solves the problem for you.

Hello,

I am not a computer whiz, but all of a sudden my laptop wont connect to my wireless network---other devices on my network are connecting just fine, checked the router and wireless adapter, both are fine. I have seen some posts about possible fixes, but am wondering if this is easy enough to fix myself?

Thanks for your help

A:my sony laptop won't connect to wireless network--"identifying"

Yes, I believe this should be a easy fix for ya. The first and easiest thing to try is to power cycle both the modem and router so it will "reset" them both. Unplug both of them for about a minute or so; then plug the modem back in first and let that fully boot; then plug the router back in and let that fully boot. If that does not fix the problem, then i would go into the device manager in the control panel and completely uninstall the wireless adapter(s) reboot; and let windows re-detect the adapter(s) and reinstall the drivers for them and hopefully that will correct the issue.

A:One Laptop stuck on "Identifying" network at home, no issues elsewhere

From the ipconfig you are showing a valid IP for both connections so most likely something is blocking the wireless from connecting. Most likely which ever third party anti virus software you have may be blocking the connection.

Removing the Atheros wireless driver in Device Manager and rebooting may also help to get the correct driver installed.

Also it's best to go to the Network and Sharing Center, look left for "Manage Wireless Connections" remove the old profile and create a new one using the new credentials. I really don't see any problems at all with the ipconfig and you should be connected.

You could also try uninstalling which ever third party A/V is being used with the special uninstall tool.

Welcome to Seven Forums,

Your computer might still be infected if it's stuck on Identifying.

Try running Free SuperAntiSpyware, see if it helps.

Check all your Network Services as well, see if they are all on Started mode including their Dependencies, check the Dependency Tab for that.
Click on start and type services.msc press enter. On Dependency Tab, check the Dependecies make sure that they are also Started.

Hi, I'm new here in hope of finding some help.

I was helping a friend remove some malware from her laptop and when it was all done I couldn't seem to connect to the internet. I try to connect it using a ethernet cable, a modem and a router, we have 2 other computers in the house that works fine and the laptop would connect to internet before when it was infected, so I doubt it is a router issue. It keeps saying "Identifying" and when I tried connecting to a neighbours internet (using wireless) it was stuck on "Local only"..

I can not connect to the internet on that laptop so I'm using my own to ask for your help.

I'm pretty sure it's not a router issue. Please help, the laptop is working very good now, it's just this issue left. Thanks in advace guys.

Do I have to change any setting of the PC or router? (im using a D-link DIR-615 wireless router)

Thanks.

I'm trying to connect my machine to a network over (wired) LAN. The connection (including internet) works fine in general, but when I open the "Network and Sharing Center", under "View your active networks" it only says "Identifying..." and the network name never appears. I think it has something to do with the (Cisco) routers not supporting the "Broadcast" flag, but disabling it in the registry didn't help either.

I need to set my network type to home, but in order to do that Windows needs to recognize it first...

A:Network status stuck on "Identifying..."

I would try resetting the modem and router (while your pc is off)... Then powering on the modem first, waiting for connectivity light... once modem is ready, plug in router... wait till it's active then start your computer.

A:"identifying network connection"

Well, maybe I fixed that *#+%X! thing; after a few more hours of trying, anyway. Got the PC Local Area Connection still set to 'Private' but set the Wireless Network Connection to 'Public' and in Wireless Network Properties I once more checked 'Connect automatically' and 'Connect even if not broadcasting'. Seems to work fine now. When it connects automatically it spends about 30 seconds identifying 'Public Network' but then settles down to my named network.

Hi all.

I have an ASUS M50V series laptop, and a wireless router with a DSL connection, and am running Vista 32 bit Home Premium. My connection is inordinately slow, because every time I click on a URL, the network says it is "identifying" my connection. It does this constantly.

In the Network and Sharing Panel map, there is an "identifying" graphic between the graphic of my latop and the internet.

My question: is there any way to hurry the connection up while it's "identifying" or make it cut this out somehow? The connection is very slow; it takes 30 seconds or a full minute sometimes to go to a URL I've clicked while it's busy "identifying". I'm hoping this is due to some settings I can change. Thank you in advance.

I am running Windows 10 Insider build 14332 and had issues setting up home group. After running the home group troubleshooter, my ethernet and wifi adaptors got renamed to "Ethernet 2" and "Wi-Fi 2" respectively.
I am unable to rename it now. It shows an error "Cannot rename this connection. A connection with the name that you specified already exists. Specify a different name."
My internet is working fine but I am finding these names a bit annoying. I have seared online for similar issues but the solutions haven't worked for me.

A:"Wi-Fi" shown as "Wi-Fi 2" in Control Panel\Network and Internet\Network Connections

The devices are still in the device manager but not connected.
These are hidden devices.

Hi folks. This is after doing an upgrade from Server 2008 to Server 2008 R2 mind you. Not sure if that matters.

I was having problems with RDPing to my Win7 clients so I checked that remote desktop was enabled. When doing so I saw that it informed me that I had to allow rdp access in the firewall which I know had been done before. After looking around I realized that my network profile had been changed to "Public". I also noticed that my active network shows as "unauthenticated". What does this mean and how can I fix this? How did this happen? Thanks.

A:Network shows as "Unauthenticated"....Changed my network profile to "Public"

How many DCs are there in the domain?
I suggest that you remove the Windows 7 computer from the AD, and exit the Windows 7 computer from domain. Then, re-join the computer to the domain. How does it work now?
If the issue persists, please temporary disable the firewall on both computers. Also, please check if Network Location Awareness service is enabled on the server and Windows 7 computers.Arthur Xie - MSFT

Hi,

I am trying to get my dads computer connected to the internet. It works fine with WPA security but I cannot use it because another computer on my network cannot use WPA. So I resort to WEP and what do you know, WEP is now not working. When I try connecting to my network, a dialog box opens and it says "waiting for the network" and it stays on that box for a little bit but eventually disappears but it does not connect to the internet. I tried searching for similar problems on google but everything I tried did not work. Please help me out if you know what to do.

Here at work, for some months, I've been connected to my company's LAN by ethernet cable, and I could also connect to the WiFi in our office (run by our joint venture partner company). All that would happen is that as soon as I connected to the WiFi, that network became my "primary" one, i.e. if I went to check my external IP, it would be the WiFi one that would show up, and I'd have trouble connecting Outlook, etc, since my PC now thought I was on a different network).

The last few days, however, I can't connect to the WiFi at all. It finds the network, but constantly just says "Waiting For Network". However if I pull the ethernet cable out of the PC (i.e. disconnect from my company's LAN), I can them connect to the WiFi no bother.

Any ideas?

A:swapping between ethernet/wifi "Unidentified Network"

I suspect but this may be dependent on the hardware/firmware in the laptops that they are only able to use a single adaptor, in other words they don't have dual port capabilities, sometimes if they have a power save active it will only allow 1 port, you really need to check the laptop model specs.
Have you tried to plug in and connect with a Ethernet and once you have established a connection try the wifi link,
As for not having permission can your IT not allow that specific permission.

I am using Windows 7 on my laptop and I have question about when to use "Home", "Work" and "Public" profile.

If I am logging in without setting password, and I am logging in network with "Public" profile, then will any other user, who can see my computer, be able to enter my computer and check the contents on my computer ?

I am connecting to a network and there are 6 other users connected to this network. In the set network location window, if I select the netwoek as "Home", does it mean that other 6 users will not be able to see my computer on network and if I use "Public", then all other six users will be able to see my computer on network ?

A:Unable to connect to wireless network. "Internet connection is too slow."

if the router is working with a cable connection, then its unlikely to be the modem , unless thats also a router and you are using it for DHCP

you say the modem is connected by cable to the router
and any device connected to the router by cable works perfectly - is that correct

on the old router - have you removed the wireless security and see if you can connect ?

carried out a full power cycle - see below

also it would be worth making a note of the router configuration and do a factory reset on the router and re setup and try again

with a PC connected by a cable direct to the modem can we see an ipconfig /all
now do a power cycle and connect the router
with a PC connected by a cable direct to the router can we see an ipconfig /all

------------------------------------------------------------------------
ipconfig /all

We would like to see the results from an ipconfig /all - post back the results in a reply here.

If you cannot access the internet with this PC, then you will need to paste the results into something like notepad and then copy onto a machine that can access the internet and post the results in a reply here.
Save the file to a USB flash drive or other removable media. Plug it into the working computer with internet access and copy the file and paste here.

Wait at least 1 to 5 minutes. We have found in some instances you need to wait at least 15 minutes
Plug the power cords back in, but don’t switch them on.
First turn on the modem and then wait for a few minutes for it to settle and all the lights to become stable.
Next switch on the router (if a separate device) and then wait for a few minutes for it to settle and all the lights to become stable.
Now turn on your computer, You should now be able to access the Internet.

So recently I've come across this problem in Windows Vista with my laptop where I right-click the network icon in the lower-right icon tray and then select the "connect to network" button that I use to connect to my wireless router... However, when I click on this button, nothing happens. No error message or anything. I even try accessing it through the start menu, control panel, etc. and it does not bring up the window that lists the available wireless connections.

When I had this problem before, I simply did a system restore and it worked, but my restore points have been deleted so now I am stuck. I tried Spy-Bot, AdAware, Norton to check for viruses, but nothing was found. I also tried a clean boot using msconfig to test for software compatibility issues, but that didn't work either.

Any ideas? Could it be a virus or something?

You have to tell us what network you are connecting to so you can get help. No info = no help.

You could start by describing physically how your computer connects to the lan and then the internet.

I connect a Dell desktop running Windows XP to my Linksys WRT160N wireless router using a Linksys WUSB600N network adapter. I can connect to the router no problem from accounts set as administrator, but when I change an account to "limited" I can no longer connect from that account.

I'm using the Linksys monitor software utility to manage the connection.

I had the same problem with my old Belkin g router and network adapter. I didn't change network hardware solely to fix this problem, but I was hoping that would be one benefit of the change.

I'm running McAfee Security, but even when I disable this functionality I still have the same problem, so it doesn't appear that McAfee is a likely cause of the problem.

I would appreciate any suggested solutions.

My office runs all Windows x machines connected to a Windows server login new "Could network upon drives" all connect not server after using Active Directory in a domain environment using login scripts to map drives X Y and Z For many years we were "Could not connect all network drives" upon login after new server using a Windows Server x server box This past weekend we made the switch to a new R x box and the login scripts were adjusted to add a th drive letter U for each user's own personal folder The login script has the U drive mapped by connecting to server share username The problem now is that EVERY time any workstation restarts or logs out and logs back in the quot could not connect all network drives quot balloon pops up But when clicking on the balloon Computer shows up with all network drives properly connected I have looked at this thread A Solution to Could not reconnect all network drives but I don't see why this would have just started happening when switching to this new server I almost never saw that message on any machine before when using the old server and mapping network drives I don't mind doing the registry edit on each machine to suppress that message as we only have about machines in the office But I'm wondering if there's something else causing this to happen now and not before the switchover

A:"Could not connect all network drives" upon login after new server

I do not know why this happens after moving to 2012 server, but we see it too :-(

You can:
1) live with it
2) suppress the message (your link)
3) delay the appearance of the desktop
4) find another solution

The solution that you pick should depend on the problems (if any) that are caused by not having a network connection to a mapped drive. For us, the network drive connection is not re-established until the user clicks on the drive letter via Windows (file) Explorer. This created a problem for an application that we use. Embedded in that app are paths to files on the mapped drive. If there is no network connection to the mapped drive, the app would throw an error - stating that the files do not exist. This confused those using the app. The work around is to open Windows (file) Explorer and click on the mapped drive to re-establish the network connection - then retry the app.

We also had some things that ran at start up and needed that network connection to the mapped drive.

Because of those issues, we oped for solution #3 from the list above. However, that "solution" added so much delay to some of the computers during boot time, that we removed it and we are back to option #1. Those using the app still get confused, but they eventually figure out why the app cannot find the file. For the start up items, we moved files to each computer so as to not depend on the server.

This is just one of the many stupid things that Microsoft does...
...making us waste hours and hours chasing solutions.

The only way to fix this problem is to System Restore, but after time I have to constantly do this.
Is there anything I can do to fix this?

That screen looks to me like you are on the LAN. If so, there would be no choice while connected via hardwire to "connect to a network". Is this what you are trying to do - be on the LAN then select a network for WLAN at the same time?

A:Wi-Fi connectivity issues: "Can't connect to network"

I wouldn't assume it is Windows 8. Many manufactured systems come with drivers that are already outdated. I would visit the HP support site and make sure your Network Driver is the latest release. Of course, check all the other drivers while you are there.

I would also check if your connection type is different. Does the Windows 7 system use 'g' and the Windows 8 use 'n'. Also, check the channels you are using for each system. Check your router to see if it is on 6 or 11 or whatever. Although it would affect both systems, switching to a another channel can help if there is inference or other neighbors all using the same channel.

After you are sure about the system connecting exactly the same, I would contact HP support.

I just reformatted my hard drive about 3 days ago after it refused to boot up. I reinstalled Windows 7 and everything was working just fine for about 2 hours, then for no apparent reason my internet connection dropped while I was browsing the internet. That was 3 days ago. My connection is still down.

My wireless card is picking up the signal from my router, but when I try to connect to the network it tells me I am connected to an "Unidentified network" and have no internet access. I tried uninstalling and reinstalling the network drivers, system restore, as well as "netsh winsock reset" "netsh int ip reset reset.log" and "netsh winsock reset catalog".

The "ipconfig /renew" command gives me the following message: "An error occurred while renewing interface Wireless Network Connection : unable to contact your DHCP server. Request has timed out."

Windows Network Diagnostics says I have two problems.
1) "Problem with wireless adapter or access point."
2) "Wireless Network Connection doesn't have a valid IP configuration."

I have never encountered this problem before, and I have been using this same PC and wireless card for 6 months. I would really appreciate some help with this because recently my PC has just been having one problem after the next.

Here is my "ipconfig /all" information as well as the messages I get when using the /renew command. I noticed I don't have a default gateway listed, which I'm hoping might be a clue to my problem:

So recently I've come across this problem in Windows Vista with my laptop where I right-click the network icon in the lower-right icon tray and then select the "connect to network" button that I use to connect to my wireless router... However, when I click on this button, nothing happens. No error message or anything. I even try accessing it through the start menu, control panel, etc. and it does not bring up the window that lists the available wireless connections.

When I had this problem before, I simply did a system restore and it worked, but my restore points have been deleted so now I am stuck. I tried Spy-Bot, AdAware, Norton to check for viruses, but nothing was found. I also tried a clean boot using msconfig to test for software compatibility issues, but that didn't work either.

Any ideas? Could it be a virus or something?

A:"connect even if this network is not broadcasting" is not available for me

are both HP laptops using the same wireless network configuration programs? seems odd that they both have xp sp2 and do not have the same ops. system features.

did you try and use Windows wireless network config. to do what you are trying to do??? and the wireless network you are trying to connect to is at work or home where the ssid is not being broadcast??

are you trying to use the Windows XP wireless network setup wizard or the new Connection Wizard?

Just upgraded to W10 but now I can't connect to my home network. Ran diagnostic... nothing changed, reset modem also no joy, was my wireless network adapter improperly configured? Other computer on network works fine, and my laptop connects to other networks (public) just as before. I did the upgrade while connected to a network other than my home one. Can I restore back to W8.1 then reinstall the W10 upgrade while connected to my home network? Or was the W10 upgrade a one shot deal and now I would have to pay for the second install? If so then I need to figure out the connection issue. Have read about uninstalling the wireless network adapter and restarting the laptop and letting windows auto detect and reinstall the adapter but unsure. I know enough to be dangerous. Any other suggestions.

Hi, for some reason everything here at my moms is working wirelessly. 1 desktop is

wireless and working fine, my iphone is connected and working fine, the Nintendo

Wii is working fine, i just brought my laptop over from my house and no network is

showing up, and i know that last time i brought it it connected fine and other

networks around us also showed up. How can i reset the network adapter

completely back to factory settings, i know my cousin messed with it to get better

download speeds and ever since then it has been giving me issues.

A:"connect to a network" but no networks

To reset router
there is a small button hole in the back use a pin/toothpick hold in in for 10 seconds or so.

Couple options

1. restore default router setting

2.If all other networks show, then the one is question may not be broadcasting manually enter the SSID, encryption type, and any key
http://www.vistax64.com/network-inte...-problems.html

3. If you see no networks at all, it is your pc/modem, check to make sure the wireless is on, restart pc, and check then check the modem, (make sure all light are green, and it has internet, if not, it is in "standby" push button an top to re-enable)

you can also, unplug router, unplug modem, wait 10 minutes, power up modem, then power up router (after few minutes), restart pc (make sure wireless is on)

A:Windows XP Home "My Network Places" refusing to show network computers

You need to look at the dependency list for each service. In the case of Computer Browser, it's Workstation and Server.

Since Workstation is failing, that's probably the place to start.

Do you have WKSSVC.DLL in C:\Windows\system32? That's the workstation service, and it appears to be the missing module. I'd first try copying that from the installation disk, if it's missing, and then register it too by:

Start, Run, regsvr32 wkssvc.dll

If you can't find the DLL, you can run sfc /scannow to restore missing files.

A shortcut may be to download the file from DLL Dump and register it as described above.

Hi,

I'm running a Win XP SP2 machine, a couple of days ago the Network Icons in the taskbar dissapeared. Also, I cannot get into Network Connections to check the connections. The folder is empty.

However, the all the connections work fine, I just cannot edit them or get any details... Cause they're nowhere to be found.

I browsed around the net and found that for this type of problems one needs to check if certain services such as "Network Connections" and "Telephony" are running. I checked, and they are all stuck in "Starting" status. And nothing I can get them to start.

I checked the chain of dependencies and the service they all depend on "Remote Procedure Call (RPC)" is started and running.

Any help would be greatly appreaciated, thanks guys!

I changed the default icon for the network one in HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\CLSID\{F02C1A0D-BE21-4350-88B0-7367FC96EF3C} but it didn't change.
Appreciate any help,

My computer was working and all of a sudden I can not longer connect to my network and when I see all available networks mine says "The settings saved on this computer for the network do not match the requirements of the network" How can I change the settings on the computer so that they match the requirements of the network? I can access other networks and get online like that, but my network, even the local one, is busted. Please help!

Hi Lori,

This issue usually occurs on wireless network connections. I suggest that you turn off any security feature of wireless. Please click Start->Control Panel, double-click Network Connections, right click on the wireless adapter and select Properties. From there choose Wireless Networks, click on your wireless network name and choose properties. Under Network Authentication choose Open to turn off the wireless security. Please try to connect.

If the issue persists, I suggest that you delete the connection, and recreate the wireless network connections. The following website may help you on creating the wireless connection.

Is the issue resolved?

If the issue persists, I suggest that you reinstall the wireless adapter driver, and re-create the connection again.

Remove the adapter driver========================

1. Click Start. In the Start Search box type "devmgmt.msc" and press Enter.2. Expand "Network Adapters", double-click on the entry of the wireless network device.3. Click the tab "Driver", click "Uninstall".4. Click Start. In the Start Search box type "appwiz.cpl" and press Enter. 5. Remove the entries related to the wireless network adapter.

Then reinstall the driver with your driver CD. After installing, re-create the connection.

If the issue is not resolve by the above suggestions, please let me know if other computers can connect to this wireless network.

Hi,

For several days my wireless connection has been connecting and disconnecting. Today I tried connecting to wireless and cannot actively see any wireless networks available. My wireless switch is on and is showing a blue light and Network Adapters in Device Manager show no warnings however when I run diagnose in Network Sharing Centre it tells me that Network Adapter "Wireless Networks Connection" is not connected.

The Wireless Router is fine and another laptop and iPad seem to have no problems connecting to it please could you advise?

I am running Windows Vista on a Vaio VGN FE41S

Many thanks,

J. Smith

would you post the following tests when the internet is working OK, and then repeat ALL the tests when the internet disconnects.
Make sure you also indicate on the reply which tests are for what condition.
please include the xirrus screen shots for both conditions - see how below.

Please post back here the make and exact model of the router and if you have a separate modem, the make and exact model of the modem.

What firewall / security suite or anti-virus do you currently have on the PC - or you have ever had on the PC in the past - any trial ware - like Norton, Mcafee , AVG etc

------------------------------------------------------------------------
ipconfig /all
If you cannot access the internet with this PC, then you will need to paste the results into something like notepad and then copy onto a machine that can access the internet and post the results in a reply here.
Save the file to a USB flash drive or other removable media. Plug it into the working computer with internet access and copy the file and paste here.

We would like to see the results from an ipconfig /all - post back the results in a reply here.

Hold the Windows key and press R, then type CMD then press Enter to open a command prompt box
(A new dialogue box - black with white font, will appear on screen ):

In the command prompt window that opens, type the following command:

Note that there is a space before the /ALL, but there is NOT a space after the / in the following command.

ipconfig /all > network.txt & network.txt

It will export the results into notepad and then automatically open the notepad and display on your screen.

Now all you need to do is copy and paste those results into a reply here
to do that:
From the notepad menu - choose Edit - Select all
all the text will now be highlighted
Next
From the notepad menu - choose Edit - Copy

Now go back to the forum - goto the reply and then right click in the reply box and paste the results.
The results from the notepad should now appear in the forum reply.

these tests will check various stages of the connection, the first ping test, ping default gateway checks to see if you still have a connection to the router.
The next two Ping google.com & Ping 209.183.226.152 tests the connection to internet. google is to test by name and the ping test using a number is checking that a connection exists without DNS.
these tests then confirm if there is a dns issue on the connection.Click to expand...

The control panel opens fine. I can access all items in the control panel
except "Network and sharing center" and the "User accounts" (I can't access this sections via the taskbar either).

What happens when I open one of the two items is I get a popup saying the
following; WINDOWS EXPLORER HAS STOPPED WORKING.

I used to be able to access these items. And one day, I just coulodn't anymore...

Anyone knows how to solve this? Thanks.

Hello Newbie,

See if running a sfc /scannow can find and fix bad system files that may be responsible for this.

Hope this helps,

When I use the netsh command to set and start the "Hosted Network", I can set the settings fine, but starting the hosted network yields "The hosted network couldn't be started. The group or resource is not in the correct state to perform the requested operation.". I have already tried the fix where you enable the "Virtual Adapter" device in device manager, but it did not change anything.
On the flip side, using the "Mobile Hotspot" option inside of the settings starts fine and works correctly.

i don't know if i am missing something or it is a bug on w10.
i click "add new bluetooth device" and then i can pair a lumia, ok. i can see my phone in "join personal area network" window.
if i try to pair the phone from "join personal area network" window i can see it in bluetooth devices list but not in "join personal area network" window.
so... it is a bug?! did i make anything wrong?! what is the difference between "add new bluetooth device" and "join personal area network" on w10?! what is "join personal area network" used for?!
thanks

A:"add new bluetooth device" vs "join personal area network"

Most likely a bug with your Windows phone, not Windows 10. Microsoft is not supporting the Lumia line that well. It does help when you ask for help, that you also post the model of the phone, what OS version it is running, along with screenshots or logs of what is wrong.

Hi, when I type in my address in I.E./Windows Explorer I can see the folder that I shared on the lan but I also get two extra folders "Printers and Faxes" and "Scheduled Tasks". How do I get rid of them?

Also, is it possible to limit users to download 1 file at a time from me?

A:Can't access "Network and Sharing Center" nor "User Accounts"

Hello Jayrrus, and welcome to Vista Forums.

I would recommend that you use Microsoft Standalone System Sweeper to scan your system with at boot to help make sure that your system is malware free first.

Afterwards, you might see if you may be able to do a system restore at boot using a restore point dated before you had these issues to see if that may be able to fix them.

Hope this helps,
Shawn
