Afterhaving a few blue screens I decided to reseat my pci cards and RAM. I am using xppro,amd 1.4 512 ram my pci slots contain a realtek nic, and sound card. From booting my machine in network connections I have Alcatel speedtouch, Pipex, realtek and another that was never there before. this is called microsoft tv/video connection. On trying to disable it, it states
"it is not possible to disable this connection at this time. This connection may be using one or more protocols that do not support plug and play, or it may have been initiated by another user or system account.
I have had the pc for about 3years and the only connections were the first 3. I have added nothing new and only reseated my cards.
Bloody hell !!! how do you get to paste urls on this forum ? Anyway theres a solution on the Microsofrft forum :- SYMPTOMS After you add a universal serial bus (USB) camera or a TV tuner card to a Microsoft Windows XP-based computer, a Local Area Connection 2 icon may be created in the View Network Connections section in My Network Places. The information that is displayed below this icon describes the connection as: Microsoft TV/Video Connection WORKAROUND To work around this behavior, restart the computer. After you restart your computer, the Local Area Connection 2 icon does not appear. STATUS This behavior is by design.
With Microsoft you can just enter the Article number (Q303302) in the search facility of their Knowledge Base Site, if you click here you can see that is all I have done, then just click the arrow button.
