Error disabling Connection


Question

Tech085

I would like to disable my eithernet network connection and I get a error saying error disabling connection - It is not possible to disable the connection at this time. This connection maybe 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., If any help it would be great.

got the same problem any help?

586459729[/snapback]

my problem was because i installed xpize and netcfgx.dll got changed in such a way that it would no longer function. try replacing that file with a known-to-be good file using an app called replacer and see if that helps.

THIS HELPED ME!!!!

PRB: Cannot Enable or Disable a Network Device from the Network Connections Folder

SYMPTOMS

If you have a network device driver with an unsigned co-installer and you use the Windows XP operating system, you cannot disable or enable the device from the Network Connections folder (that is, you cannot right-click the device and then click Enable/Disable).

You can, however, enable or disable the device from the Device Manager.

CAUSE

The Device Manager runs in the logged-on user context and is, therefore, allowed to disable or enable devices with unsigned co-installers. However, the request from the Network Connections folder to enable or disable devices is sent to a LocalSystem service, which is not allowed to enable or disable devices because an unsigned co-installer cannot be trusted to run in the logged-on user context.

STATUS

This behavior is by design.

I have exactly this same problem,

This happened when I installed Autopatcher XP August 2006.

I get this very error of not being able to disable internet connection from connections menu. I have to do it everytime from the device manager.

So far I have tried replacing netcfgx.dll and it didn't work. And I have also tried the following method too..

corrupted crypo service database...

Click Start, click Run, type cmd in the Open box, and then OK.

At the command prompt, type the following commands, pressing ENTER after each line:

net stop cryptsvc

ren %systemroot%\System32\Catroot2 oldcatroot2

reboot the computer back to normal mode.

None of them worked for me. Please tell me what to do.

Regards,

Furqan

i've had lots of similar problems when i installed xpize :pinch: very poor software

What did you do remove them? Except for ofcourse a new install.

Hello everyone, I've been looking into this problem and I think I've come to a solid conclusion. My first hint was numerous posts regarding Cryptographic Services. Anyways it seems that this error is caused by corruption in the db or problems with registered DLL files required by the service. Awhile back I found a little batch script that fixes common Cryptographic Services problems; this script was originally created to correct a Windows Update error (0x800710D9) but seems to also be relevant in this situation that seems to be caused by Autoruns. I suspect by the Speed Tweaks area; but this is just a guess.

This script has been tested on SP1 and SP2 Windows XP Pro systems, should work fine for Home as well.

Hope it helps you all out

If you... cannot disable or enable the device from the Network Connections folder (that is, you cannot right-click the device and then click Enable/Disable).

You can, however, enable or disable the device from the Device Manager.

That helped me to remove an annoying "Bluetooth-Disconnected" icon from my [32-bit] systray. It was so easy, I'm sure to be the hero on someone else's computer, too. Thanks.

New to this forum so Hello everyone. I would like to try the method that tripbert gave to fix the Error Disabling Connection message problem. Unfortunately unlike gr8leo87, I need a little more help. I know how to copy what tripbert posted that is in between Start and Stop, but I don't know how to paste it into a file. I certainly tried, and even renamed one, but I couldn't paste the info in to it and was even sure where the file should go if I could. If any of you could give me a step by step explanation on how to accomplish this I'd appreciate it. Like others here, although this problem isn't a big deal, it still bothers me. I'm not sure exactly when it began, but it worked fine up until an install of AVG Internet Security Suite about two weeks ago, (Uninstalling it didn't make a difference) and updated to the newest FireFox version and McAfee SiteAdvisor. Other than that I'm not sure what caused this Error, and that's what bothers me the most about it I think. LOL. I did uninstall and reinstall the Wireless Network Adapter, as I was also getting a message that it may not be installed correctly. whenever I tried to use the repair feature. Anyway thanks ahead of time, it will certainly be appreciated.

1 year later thank you so much for this trick my internet work fine now!

I went into the device manager, right clicked my Ethernet connection and the drop-down menu gave the option to "enable" but "disable" was not present. It was already enabled from the Control Panel so I found this confusing. However, I enabled via the Device Manager, then disabled via the Control Panel, and it worked. I have no idea what all that scripting is or for, but there are some very interesting things that can be done w/ @echo off...
