Cannot Add Service to Network Adapter


I'm using Windows 7 Home Premium 64bit SP1

There is similar question for Windows 7 Home Premium 32bit. posted by MTS52 but suggestions didn't help me

I need to add manually service since is not automatically installed when I install SW and I can't do it, please see screen shots Lan1.PNG and Lan2.PNG

Do not understand why access is denied, I'm administrator and there is no other users on this PC.
Also I do right click and run as administrator

I trying to Install Virtual Box on my notebook and I already try several workarounds to make it works but not yet .

Also I can't unselect any box in network connection properties

Please if anybody have any idea will be helpful,

You are already a client for Microsoft networks. In Virtual you need to Bridge the host network with the that what you are trying to do?

Yes, but I can't do it, and for workaround I should manually install service driver for Virtual Box and I do not have access.

This is how Virtual Box network settings looks like, under network adapter I do not see my LAN adapter.

This is workaround I try to apply
