C:\windows\system32\net.exe start wzcsvc is the command to start WZC.
you could use this in a batch file in the startup folder.

How are you starting it?

Start -run- type services.msc -ok
scroll down to WZC right click - properties in the strtup box set it to Automatic.

It should then start every time you boot.

try a repair

Repair XP by replacing corrupt files

sfc /scannow

in the run box, press enter and let system file checker find and replace missing / corrupt file in windows and explorer.This will take awhile to complete and you may be asked for the CD to be in the drive if windows is not preinstalled on the hard drive.

Hi Fruit Bat /\0/\, Sorry for the very late response, been pretty busy with other stuff plus I had to go through all the scannow problems because that didnf fix the problem, but I think a simple tick in the property of my wireless newtwork connection where it says please tick if you want windows to manage your wireless connection, the tick was missing, since I placed the tick its been a breeze, so far........ I just want to say Thank you for all your help and input, really appreciated it.
