I'm sorry to start a new thread, but the solutions I found gave the solution, but only temporarily. I get the firewall Windows firewall settings cannot be displayed because the associated service is not running error. I reset the winsock, search with Spybot and destroy, and check in Control Panel that the settings are set to automatic, then restart, and it works. But after a short while, it just ceases to work. And also, each time I fold down the top of the laptop and open it back up later, I get the wireless error: Windows cannot configure this wireless connection, if you have enabled another program to use this... But this happens ONLY when I fold it down and back up. Is there a permanent solution to these problems?
