For Windows 7 users, are these two useful?

From within Services panel...

Internet Connection Services [can be started, can be set from Manual to Automatic]

Microsoft Network Interface [can only started, permanently Manual]

ICS is for sharing a network adaptor. Run the command ncpa.cpl, then right click the adator and goto properties, then click the sharing tab. Thats what ICS does.

Dont have the other one mate so cant say for sure.

I don't have that service on my machines ( 8 & 10).

 

Can you go to the command-line (cmd.exe) and type "sc query"?

 

This will give you a list of all services, search for DISPLAY_NAME Microsoft Network Interface.

Remember the corresponding SERVICE_NAME (let's say it MsNetInt).

Then use this command: "sc qc MsNetInt" (replace MsNetInt with the SERVICE_NAME you found)

 

This will tell you what file implements this service.

D. Stevens, my Microsoft Network Inspection is greyed out, set to Manual; what other service must be enacted in order to set MNI to Automatic?

It is normal that it is set to Manual.

 

Some services are set to Manual, because they are started by another service or application.

 

This one is started by MSE.
