    I am trying to set my wireless connection to be a shared internet connection
    so i go to properties for Wireless Network Connections
    and im suppose to click on advanced
    but wene i do in the window it says "Windows cannot display the propertys of this connection. The Windows management Instrumentation (WMI) info might be corrupted. To correct this use system restore..."
    But i dont realy want to restore my comp so is there another way to make a sheared internet connection or is there a way to make it so the advanced part of properties shows up? thanks

    Start - Run - services.msc

    Go down to Windows Management Instrumentation.

    Set it to Automatic (mines presently in manual mind you) by right clicking on it.
    Also right click and start it.

    For Xp SP2

    Start Run-
    rundll32 wbemupgd, UpgradeRepository

    This will repair the Windows Management Instrumentation
