Entire "New Connection Wizard" greyed out

Discussion in 'Windows XP Work Remotely' started by Andrew M. Saucci, Jr., Nov 18, 2009.

  1. I am running XP Professional with Service Pack 3. The entire "New
    Connection Wizard" is greyed out, so that I cannot create VPN connections. I
    already tried the suggestions in KB 329441 and KB 320558 to no avail. It
    doesn't matter if I am an administrator or not. I have no intention of doing
    a repair installation of Windows to fix something like this. I want it fixed
    but it isn't worth the pain and risk of a repair installation. Does anyone
    have any other ideas?

  2. It could be 3rd party software issue. For troubleshooting, try clean boot.
