    Whenever I click on the repair button this is what is being returned:

    "Windows could not finish repairing the problem because the following action can not be completed:
    Disabling the wireless network adapter

    Make sure your network adapter is properly installed."

    Whenever I try to disable the wireless network connection this is what is being returned:

    "It is not possible to disable the connection at this time. This connection may be using one or more protocols that do not support plug-and-play, or it may have been initiated by another user or the system account."

    Is there a fix to this problem? I was able to repair my connection untill just recently.

    Start, Run, CMD to open a command prompt:

    Type the following command:

    IPCONFIG /ALL

    Right click in the command window and choose Select All, then hit Enter.
    Paste the results in a message here.

    If you are on a machine with no network connection, use a floppy, USB disk, or a CD-RW disk to transfer a text file with the information to allow pasting it here.

    TCP/IP stack repair options for use with Windows XP with SP2.

    Start, Run, CMD to open a command prompt:

    Reset WINSOCK entries to installation defaults: netsh winsock reset catalog

    Reset TCP/IP stack to installation defaults. netsh int ip reset reset.log

    Reboot the machine.

    In Network Connections right click on your wireless connection - Properties - in the 'This connection uses the following items' box, what items have check marks?

    The following boxes are checked:

    Client for Microsoft Networks
    Symantec Network Security Intermediate Filter Drive
    File and Printer Sharing for Microsoft Networks
    QoS Packet Scheduler
    Internet Protocol (TCP/IP)

    Four of those are perfectly normal. I don't have knowledge of this, but guess that 'Symantec Network Security Intermediate Filter Drive' could cause one part of that error message you reported in your initial post: "This connection may be using one or more protocols that do not support plug-and-play, or it may have been initiated by another user or the system account."

    Was that installed before, when you were able to disable the connection?
