    Can anyone tell me how to stop the "Use Windows to configure my wireless network settings" tickbox from unticking everytime I cold boot my Laptop. I have to go into Wireless Networks and retick the box each time to get my wireless connection to work.
    Many thanks

    Control Panel - Administrative Tools - Services - scroll to Wireless Zero Configuration and check the Startup Type. It should be 'Automatic' for what you want.

    If your wireless adapter's utility is launched at startup (and disables WZC) then stop it (remove it's shortcut icon from the Startup folder or use msconfig).
