Windows 7: Internet connection sharing, error 5 access is denied

Internet connection sharing, error 5 access is denied

i have been using internet via USB dongle on my laptop and transfering it to phone device through hostednetwork for the last 6/7 months. But today it got disconnected suddenly. So, i tried to connect it and i was able to set hostednetwork started, but failed to connect internet. I even tried by creating a new hostednetwork profile but same issue still persist. So, i uninstalled usb dongle settings and reinstalled and went to the "internet connection sharing" tab wherein i select "wireless network connection 2" and check the box "allow other network users to connect through this computer's internet connection". when i clicked ok button, i got this message "When internet connection sharing is enabled, your LAN adapter will be set to use IP address 192.168.......1. Your computer may lose connectivitywith other computers on your network. If this other computers have static IP addresses, you should set them to obtain their IP addresses automatically.". i clicked OK. and then i got the message again like "since this connection is currently active, some settings will not take effect until the next time you dial it." i clicked ok. Message box popped up again saying "cannot enable shared access. Error 5: Access is denied.". I even set to obtain an IP and DNS server address automatically. But could not able to share internet. Please help me.
