Windows 7: A host of problems - related?

A host of problems - related?

Hello there, I've finally gotten round to registering here and asking something because I've run out of ideas about some troubles with Windows.

My install is 7 Premium the 64 bit edition and recently I've been experiencing problems as follows.

It all started with the network which, as you can see in the image below, has the regular connection connected and no Internet available and an imaginary one that keeps connecting.

My computer only has one NIC installed and the connection is done like so: Modem>Router>Computers. The network also holds a Windows XP computer and that has no issues.

The weird thing is as follows, Windows 7 says I'm not connected to any network, yet the NIC gets an ip and I do have Internet access

This lead me on towards looking into the situation and it seems that I opened up Pandora's box. Basically, the Workstation and Computer Browser will not start. CB doesn't start because WS isn't on and WS errors 1067 back at me.

Trying to fix the error I ran sfc /scannow and when it finished I got to find out that there were errors it couldn't fix. The CBS.log file is enormous and mine is... full of errors.

Attachment 149498

Please take a look and tell me if there's anything I can do to fix it?


P.S. Upon restart, the second imaginary connection disappeared, the remaining real one still says I have no network access but I'm online.

Thank you for moving to the appropriate section.

I'd like to follow up with some extra information and another photo.

Event viewer is loaded with errors, just today:

"The Workstation service terminated unexpectedly. It has done this 17 time(s)."

Clearly that's my problem but I can't seem to find anything done to it.

Also, here's the situation right now, as is most of the time.

Could some of you mods please rename thread to Network services problem or something like that?

LE: If I set Workstation service to disabled, then restart... everything is OK, the connection reports Internet Access, I can get a map of the connection and so on.

The second I start Workstation service, everything comes back to multiple networks, neither of which claims to have Internet access despite it being there.

I would leave the Workstation service off but that means losing access to the other pc on my network and all its shared files but most of all, the printer.

I guess what we're looking at now is why the workstation service died and refuses to start and work properly again.
