    Hi everyone. I hope all is going well for you.

    I would truly appreciate any help/solutions for my laptop problems.

    My Laptop: Sony VAIO E Series VPCEB3J0E
    Windows 7
    Intel Core i3

    The following problems occured when the laptop did its automatic update, where it says it's going to restart in 15 mins or so. Everything was working perfectly at this point. I clicked restart, and the next time my laptop was on, the following problems occured:

    1. My wireless connection shows 'Limited access', although the signal strength is 'Excellent'. When I try to troubleshoot, it says 'An error occured while troubleshooting: A problem is preventing the troubleshooter from starting. Error code: 0x80070002'. However, the other PC, which I am currently using has internet access, and so does my mobile which has wi-fi access.

    2. I go to control panel>System and Security>Backup your computer>Set up backup and an error comes up saying: Windows cannot find '%windir%\\system32\\sdclt.exe'. Make sure you typed the name correctly, and then try again.

    3. The icons for Notepad, Paint, Sticky Notes, Snipping Tool, Windows Anytime Upgrade, Windows Media Center, Calculator, Command Prompt, Windows Explorer and several others under the Accessories tab have the same icon. When I try to open them it says: 'Can't open this item: It might have been moved, renamed, or deleted. Do you want to remove this item?'

    Much help will be truly appreciated.

    Thank you.
