    I'm trying to install a Netgear wireless card in my new computer , XP Pro, and I get a pop uthat says I need to disable the windows xp wireless network configuration utility. I click on trying to close the pop up and the computer keepd rebooting. I think there is a conflict with the new Netgear software wireless and the Windows XP software. How do I disable the Windows XP Wireless Network Configuration Utility?
    Thanks

    Run services.msc and look for it in the Services list. Double click to access its properties ("Wireless Zero Configuration") and set the startup mode to disabled and reboot.
