Network and sharing center freezes, server execution failed

S

Ever since I first started my computer with windows vista I have had a red x
over my network icon and it says connection status unknown: server execution
failed. Also my network and sharing center freezes when i try to start it,
and i have to use task manager to shut it down. I have seen a fix for this
problem but it only works with versions higher than home basic vista
versions.(which I have home basic) if anyone has an idea so I can fix this,
it would be greatly appreciated.

Basically the link led to a website that literally said anyone with vista
home(which is mine) is ******. the only solution is available to those who
have the business version or higher. I don't have the money for a higher
version. It doesn't seem fair....

boot up your machine in safe mode by hitting f8 when you start up your machine, choose safe mode with commands, then enter the command
net localhost "Administrators" "Local Service"/add
That worked for me and I have home premium

This reply corrects the command to fix this problem and also provides
all the steps necessary to run it.

1. Restart Vista.

2. After your computer's BIOS screen ("press F2 for Setup," whatever)
displays, keep pressing F8 until you see Vista's startup options screen.

3. Run "Safe Mode with Command Prompt."

4. At the Safe Mode command prompt type

net localgroup "Administrators" "Local Service" /add

and then press ENTER.

You should see a "The command completed successfully" message.

5. Type

exit

and then press RETURN. This closes the command window.

6. Restart Vista.

7. When Vista has restarted, log in and try to display the Network and
Sharing Center. On this laptop, that command fixed the problem
discussed in this thread: Now its wireless adapter icon reflected its
connection to the world, and the Network and Sharing Center opened,
populated, and displayed the system's network connections as expected.

Notice in the command statement that it's not "localhost" but
"localgroup." (If you execute the command as it was originally posted,
you receive an error message that clues you in on that by listing the
top-level syntax of the net command. The only option that starts with
"local." is "localgroup.") As musicians say on experiencing an epiphany
in the string section, "Viola!"

Best regards,

Dave
