Wifi connection option on control panel is missing

Q: Wifi connection option on control panel is missing

So all of a sudden I can't connect to the Internet. I have my wifi switch on my laptop turned on, I've done everything so far so I could get my wifi back on, but it just won't happen. I've rebooted my laptop three times already, did the same thing with the modem, and nothing.
Refreshed and still nothing.
I've uploaded an image so to have a clearer picture of things. Hope it helps.
Please help. I need internet on my laptop.
My OS is win7

Preferred Solution: Wifi connection option on control panel is missing

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Hi
Ive just switched From win 2k to xp pro (no sp yet) so i hope this isn't just me being dumb

I'm trying to resolve some hardware issues by installing / reinstalling but when i go to the control panel all there is is "ADD HARDWARE"

unless I'm mistaken this panel should read add remove hardware? This is the same for all user accounts including the default administrator account which i have never used or altered.

Please could someone give me a clue as to how to restore this option, or let me know if I'm being dim and its supposed to be that way.

Hello All,

I have been trying to solve a Zone Alarm problem, but the fix seems to have turned into a Windows problem. I hope someone can help me.

I've used ZoneAlarm Security Suite for several years now, but during the past year I have been unable to install upgrades. Usually the process gets stuck during the uninstall of the old version. SO this time I tried to manually uninstall first. It seemed to work (via Add/Remove Programs) and then I tried installing the new version, but it got stuck while copying files over.

On the Zonealarm Forum I got some help from someone who gave me some instructions to follow to "completely" uninstall all zonealarm (zonelabs) files. Following these instructions (which I'll post below) appeared to have removed Zonealarm, but I still could not install the new version - it got stuck at the exact same point while copying files over.

So now I don't have the old version and can't install the new version.
Now to the Windows problem. (Thanks for your patience)

Everything else on my PC seems to be working fine. Email, internet, other programs...but then I went to use Photoshop Elements and it started up by showing me the user license and asking for acceptance (which it hasn't done since I installed it over a year ago). I accepted it and then got the following message:Your Adobe Photoshop Elements username, organization, or serial number is missing or invalid.

A:Missing Add/Remove option in Control Panel

Hello and welcome to TSF


Click Start, Run and type REGEDIT. This starts the Registry Editor. Navigate to:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE \Microsoft\Windows \CurrentVersion\Uninstall\<Program Name>
( <Program Name> here is Adobe Photoshop Elements)
*
In the right-pane, do the following:

Double-click NoRemove (REG_DWORD) and set it to 0
Double-click NoModify (REG_DWORD) and set it to 0

If NoRemove is set to 1, the Remove button will be unavailable
If NoModify is set to 1, the Change button will be unavailable
info

This should help with Adobe Photoshop Elements.

Now, for ZA.

Try using the Windows Installer CleanUp Utility. As long as you installed the application using the Windows Installer, this utility will remove all the folders, files, registry keys, and entries from your system and allow you to start over with a clean slate.

Download the Windows Installer CleanUp Utility
Locate and run msicuu2.exe to install the Windows Installer CleanUp Utility.
Locate and launch the Windows Installer CleanUp Utility on the Start menu.
From the Windows Installer CleanUp Utility window, locate the application in the list and click the Remove button.
Once the application has been removed, click the Exit button to close the utility.

1. When trying to open existing or new graphic email attachments, the following error message appears: "This file does not have a program associated with it to perform this action. Create an association in the Folders Option control panel." Where do I find this?
2. Have not been able to download Adobe Flash Player. Each time I click "Download" nothing happens. Could the Norton security program be part of this problem?
 

A:Folders Option control panel

Right click on the attachment that won't open and 'save as', save to your desktop. Right click the file and go to 'open with' and choose which program you would like to open the files as a defualt. Make sure the 'Always use the selected appication for files of this type' checkbox is checked and open. Now when you open the attachment in outlook, it should load in the application you selected.
For Flash, go to www.adobe.com and search for standalone flash install. You should find the download page and be able to download a setup file to run locally which shouldn't be affected by norton or any other programs,
Hope this helps,
Stu.

Quick question, i am using a ATI radeon 700064mb pci and i was wondering what is the difference between, Display:

Plug and play = (name of card)

and

Default plug and play = (name of card)

What happens when i put it on default, more graphics, sound better, faster load times , what?

thanks.
 

A:Question about an option in my control panel

Hi U2K,
My guess is probably nothing. If the default means regarding a monitor that doesn't return a plug and play code to the os, it only allows the most common refresh rates at common resolutions.
If the card identifies the monitor properly, it should disable any resolutions or refresh rates that that specific mon can't or shouldn't run.

I have XP Home SP3 generally running quite nicely but the other day I noticed when I opened Control panel that the Task Pane no longer gives the option of viewing it in either Classic view or category view.

I have it set for classic view as this is my preference. So there is no problem from my angle. It's just not possible to switch back to category view if I ever choose to in the future.

Kelly's Korner gives a tweak to set the view either way but this does not reinstate the option on the task pane.

Just in case someone is going to suggest it, No I can't do a system restore because it is turned off.

Any help with this would be appreciated.

Cheers

A:Control panel no longer gives a viewing option

Hello jackisback

This may be what you are looking for.

Open Control Panel > click tools > select Folder Options > under General tab select

"show common tasks in folders"

This should get the task pane back if you want it back in the future.

Hi, I came across this issue while trying to solve another, the issue of the annoying on-screen caps lock indicator (solved using this method).

Hi, A few days ago, I made a small purchase.
I bought 2x ZOTAC nVidia GTS 450's and a SLi Bridge connector.

I've read around that the SLi enable option should be available under the 3D section, with the PhysX configuration, but it's just simply NOT there.

Even GPU-Z says that SLi is disabled!

The video cards are installed, I disabled my onboard video from my Motherboard Bios.
But still, it does not let me SLi those bad boys to squeeze max performance out of my pc.

What should I do?


Code:
Video Card:
2x http://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814500187&cm_re=ZOTAC_GTS_450-_-14-500-187-_-Product

Code:
SLi Bridge connector:
http://www.directcanada.com/products/?sku=10450BD3820&vpn=SLI-12CM&manufacture=ARCTIC%20COOLING

A:Dual GTS 450's in SLi. Option does NOT appear in nVidia Control Panel.

For starters you cannot run SLI on an AMD chipset, you need a motherboard with a Nvidia chipset. Short of replacing your motherboard or running a single card, there isn't much you can do other than returning the cards and going with a single card or getting two AMD cards to run in Crossfire if you want dual cards.

Personally I would return them and go with a single card. For what you paid for those two (or at least the price on Newegg at the moment) you could have got a GTX 470 or HD 6950, either of which performs about the same (or a bit faster in some cases) as 2 GTS 450's in SLI.

I have a Creative Labs and a Logitech z-5500 5.1 sourround system. Originally, everything worked fine so I know this is not a hardware problem. I've recently had to reinstall Windows 7 Ult 64, and now I'm only getting stereo sound out of my 5.1 system. Going into Sounds/Diagnostics in control panel I see there's only an option for STEREO, not 5.1 Surround. When I go to the Creative diagnostics and switch from 2/2.1 sound to 5.1 sound, the drop down menu immediately switches back to 2.1. Any suggestions on how to get my sound system fully functioning? I've disabled the onboard sound in the BIOS of my motherboard and made sure the connectors are installed correwctly.

Catalyst 5.11 drivers were the last to be bundled with the old control panel. At least with 5.11, there was an option between the old control panel and the new CATALYST .net control panel. We are up to version 5.12 and 5.13 and you are now forced to use the new .net Control Panel, the old control is now not an option anymore.

My friend does not know how he did this, but his Control Panel is missing! Now, he has all these pop-ups and stuff making it almost impossible to do anything. How does one recover the Control Panel? He cannot access anything anymore because he must contact his system administrator! I did suggest that maybe we could set it back to prior to losing his Control Panel, but was hoping I would not have to resort to that. HELP!
Plus, now is desktop has some kind of symbol and everything is in RED saying YOUR PRIVACY IS IN DANGER and to download privacy protection software now!! AND, he keeps getting all these pop-ups (even though he has all his blockers on) telling him to download this or that because this or that virus,malware,worm, whatever is attacking his computer.

Thanks to my teenagers constant internet surfing I've contacted some sort of virus. I work on a computer all day and have spent every evening til the wee hours of the morning trying to fix this computer. Not to mention the money I've spent on Spyware and Computer fix programs. I ran XoftSpySE and RegCure through all the scans and repairs. Only to have the same amount of access which is no CD Player I had installed a new one and the computer doesn't recognize it. I have no add hardware because of no control panel and no System capabilities because my computer doesn't recognize me as the Administrator. I was in another Blog that mentioned going into regetit.exe or something like that and deleting no files, but that didn't do anything. Can someone help before I go insane?

A:Control Panel Missing

Firstly. Don't touch the registry without knowing EXACTLY what you are doing. And NEVER alter the registry without performing a registry backup.

you can do this via: start>run>regedit>file>export>save as

You say you have a virus, but you have performed "comprehensive" virus scan. This leads me to believe you have system files missing.

This will be EXTREMELY difficult to trouble shoot without administrator access. so thats first.

right click "my computer">manage>local users and groups>users>click administrator>set password.

If this works you should have admin access. Let me know how that went and ill take it from there.

Arggg my control panel is completely missing after having a few viruses on my laptop. Thankfully things are back to normal with the viruses removed, save for the fact that my control panel is gone! I've had a look on the internet for solutions, but usually they entail posting specific HijackThis Logs or something along those lines. Can anyone help pointing me in the right direction of what to download to get these logs and then help rectify this problem?

All help is much appreciated!!!

A:Control Panel is missing.

Are you logged in as an Administrator user or as a limited user? If not log in as as admin user and change your profile to be an admin. If you think you're an admin, boot into Safe Mode (press F8 at bootup) and log in as the Built in Administrator, not your user account. If you didn't set a password for the admin account, leave it blank. Here go to Start/Run and type control userpasswords. Makes sure your user account is an admin. If it is, then create a new user account with admin rights restart the computer in normal mode and log in as that user. If you can access Control Panel, then go to C:\Documents and Settings and oprn up your old user profile and copy the files from your old user account to the new user account.

Can I reinstall control panel only from windows 7 disk?

Hi and welcome to SevenForums.

I take it that something has changed recently resulting in the loss of control panel and no internet?

Have you tried System Restore ?

I'm not sure on Dell's policy's but I'd say you would get at least 1 year warranty.
