    Recently, my network Connections folder has stopped functioning correctly, and whenever I try to open it, it only returns a blank folder. I cannot connect to the internet wirelessly, and thus have an Ethernet cord in my system now. I have tried antivirus scans, re-installing network drivers and hardware, restarting all system services, and restoring the system to its earliest point. DxDiag fails to run a diagnostics of the Network. If there is any way I could revive the folder and my wireless internet connections, please teach me how.

    System Specifications:
    Windows XP Professional 2002 Service Pack 3
    32 Bit

    Try this... This worked for me- in an XP SP3 32bit system. Had Internet connection, but nothing else:

    Control Panel | Network Connections

    On that screen, Right-Mouse click on your different objects... Whereever you have a 'repair' option in the little submenu, click on it to allow XP to repair the connection.

    After that, reboot in Safe Mode w/Networking.
