i just bought a new acer aspire one, and upgraded to vista. i know its a "netbook" but vista has been running great excpt for today i have a new issue. If i right click on the network connections to scan for wireless devices it wont open. so i hit start and click "Connet to" and tje folder will open but it will b "frozen" it does not display anything inside and i will eventually have to bring the task manager up and end process. it DOES NOT freeze the entire computer though. i can still access any other folder, my doc.. ect. so basically i cant search for new network connections. any ideas?
