the following error message is received when you try to access NIC

"Some of the controls on this property sheet are disabled because one or
more other Network property sheets are already open. To use these controls,
close all these property sheets and then reopen this one."

Based on my research, the issue is usually caused by an aborted NIC driver
installation process which leaves a registry value under the following key:

I suggest you try the following steps to delete the registry value:

1. Click Start, type regedit in the Start Search box and press Enter.
2. Navigate to the following key:


3. Right click RunOnce and select Export to make a backup.
4. In the right pane, delete the value referenced to rundll32.
5. Quit Registry Editor.

Then, restart the computer to test the issue.

If the issue persists, please reinstall the NIC driver to check the result.
