Windows 7: "Location is not available" Error trying to access Network settings

"Location is not available" Error trying to access Network settings

When I click on Network and Sharing Centre, from the control panel window, it just spins and goes (not responding). I also get this error and I found it in the reg and compared it to another Win 7 installation (same reg key), which was identical.



Anyone has any clues how to fix or deal with this? Right now I can't access network settings on my computer.

Thanks!

Hi Force Majeure,

Interesting, your the 2nd person to quote that GUID today- 26EE...........

I believe its something todo with the Server connection
Are you running behind a proxy??
Or just installed the latest roll-ups

I have not installed any updates as of late, was probably this last spring.



The server connection to what exactly? To the microsoft/windows site perhaps?
