Windows 7: Viewing a network adapter properties results in freezing.

15 Jun 2010   #1

Windows 7 Home Premium x64
 
 
Viewing a network adapter properties results in freezing.

Whenever I select my wireless adapter, right click and choose "Properties" the properties window freezes, and along with it the explorer window. Some time ago I had disabled a bunch of services, some of which were related to networking. I had done so because they were causing intensive CPU use problems while they were being loaded. I realize now I should of set them to manual, and I have set as many as I can remember to manual, but the problem still exist. Is there something else I could try to undo this problem, and aside from this everything else works fine with no internet or network problems.

Windows Remote Management (WS-Management)
--Windows Remote Management (WinRM) service implements the WS-Management protocol for remote management. WS-Management is a standard web services protocol used for remote software and hardware management. The WinRM service listens on the network for WS-Management requests and processes them. The WinRM Service needs to be configured with a listener using winrm.cmd command line tool or through Group Policy in order for it to listen over the network. The WinRM service provides access to WMI data and enables event collection. Event collection and subscription to events require that the service is running. WinRM messages use HTTP and HTTPS as transports. The WinRM service does not depend on IIS but is preconfigured to share a port with IIS on the same machine. The WinRM service reserves the /wsman URL prefix. To prevent conflicts with IIS, administrators should ensure that any websites hosted on IIS do not use the /wsman URL prefix.

Can you share with us your list of services, and if they are enabled/manual/disabled or whatever. We may notice one more that might need to be enabled.

Once that's ruled out we can look at other causes? Any suggestions any1?

I added a list of my services and their status, even made it easier to navigate! I tried the utilities, and while I found out some interesting things the problem still remains. I just discovered that it is actually loading the properties window correctly, but only after the rather large delay that mimics a freeze.

I believe that is part of my printer software, possibly for wireless connectivity. I disabled it since I don't use my printer wirelessly. The problem still persist, it's not a huge ordeal to be honest but I am curious.
