Is the rest of the control panel intact? What happens if you restart in to safemode, same problem?

Try this command in a command prompt and then restart the computer:

net localgroup "Administrators" "Local Service" /add

I found it in a thread for a vista computer but it may work for you.

EDIT: We maybe should keep on this discussion in your thread instead.

Cant' Detect Wireless Networks: Very Different Problem
I tried that command and it said it was successful...but it still didnt work even after a restart.
Yes everything else is in tact and the Wlan AutoConfig does not start when i try to start it.

Same thing in safemode

here's a screen shot of my network and sharing center.

I have tried so many things and nothing has worked.
Have you tried running the sfc /scannow command at the command prompt? Doing that will usually find and fix any file corruption or missing files.

If that didn't work it might be worth while to run a repair installation from the Windows CD.

Repair Install
Hi, I tried the sfc /scannnow and it said some files were corrupt and were not able to be fixed. I don't have the Windows 7 disc anymore. The wifi was working fine for a week, then it just suddenly stopped...I don't know why
