I have XP Home SP2 machine. The network connections folder is empty, even
after refreshing. Network adapters appear in Device Manager fine and
working. I have uninstalled/reinstalled and updated the drivers. I have no
icon down in the system tray. The same applies if I plug in a wireless
adapter. It will appear and install in device manager fine, but I will not
get a wireless icon in the system tray and it will not appear in network
connections. The wired NW card will get a IP from my router. IPCONFIG shows
the connection working fine, however I can not access anything on the
internet. I have tried everything I can possibly find out on the Internet
dealing with this issue including trying everything in the MS article
#825826. All the required services are starting correcting and the required
DLL's are registered correctly. My last two options are to try SP3 (I'm
downloading now), and then a reload of the system. Any ideas? I was hoping
to not get to that point. Thanks for any help! This one is baffling.

It looks to me like the machine is stuck between SP2 and SP3. Properties of
My Computer show SP2. Add/Remove programs says SP3 is installed. I
uninstalled SP3, and I can actually get to the internet now, however still no
icons in network connections. Tried to reinstall SP3 but eventually got a
"Access Denied" message. Going to try reinstalling SP2.
