I doubt this has anything to do with connectivity, since I suspect stuff like IE is working, so the IPCONFIG isn't of much use here.

What was installed/upgraded right before this behavior? Tell us exactly what you're doing when this occurs? What other symptoms do you have, like other issues with Internet access?

What does it show after it opens internet properties? if you close it does it work? If not, what is the error it gives?

Glad you got it working and glad we could help. :)

You can create another shortcut by going to C:\Program Files\Outlook Express then creating a shortcut of msimn.exe and placing it wherever you like. :)
