If netprofm wasn't granted something, it's because it is not supposed to be granted it.

Randomly changing settings, especially in the registry or permissions without understanding the ramifications will get you further into trouble.

You will never know what new problem you have invoked by changing this.

Troubleshooting is eliminating options, not introducing new ones.

I hope the reboot will solve this problem.

If it does, try setting the things back you changed, except for the service that was set to automatic.

good luck

That is correct - permissions for netprofm are read

I dont think default is incorrect. My working sys also has default only
The single entry is correct

another tip for good trouble shooting.

change one thing at a time and reboot.

It takes longer, but at least you will know when you found the right one.


And again, don't change system permissions. It will screw up your OS.
Very good advice

Well, either the OP screwed up the system like I predicted, or he got lucky and it's fixed.

We'll see I guess.

Hate to say I told you so........

This will be my last attempt to help you, although I must be nuts.

Services!

Checkout the network services that are started when you have a successful connection

Set them to automatic ONE by ONE . Don't stop them.

Reboot after every single change. and check out if the problem is gone.

Don't change any more permissions.

Good luck

When you click on the bar above started or stopped, you can arrange the started ones to be on top.

Take a screenshot.

Print it if you can.

Now force the network.

Do the same thing, arranging the started services on top, and make a second screenshot and print.

Now you can see which services were started when you forced the network.

Set those to automatic. and reboot.

That should do the trick.

good luck

ok thanks ill do that, when I'm done I'll post the results.

EDIT: There doesn't seem to be any services that start/stop once initiating a connection or cutting it, and this problem is getting beyond annoying. I also managed to kinda screw up my OS while trying to fix it anyways, so I'm gunna try upgrading to the same build win 7 again, and if that fails well then too bad for me, backing up and doin clean install over again. I know this must be some problem that is unique to this install of mine of win 7, as I've never had this problem with any other win 7 install or any other windows install in general either.

Thanks to all that tried to help.
