Has anyone ever seen this message: "Cannot disable at this time, you may be using one or more protocols that do not support plug and play" I get this message when trying to "Disable" a DSL internet connection. I am connected to the internet using an Ethernet cable. I can connect using USB also. Neither of the local area connections set up for these connections can be disabled do to this annoying message. I have contacted my internet provider, my company VPN help desk and HP technical support. No one has heard of this message before and none of them can help me fix the problem. (I also tried a system restore, but I had no restore points to restore my system too. I have created some since this problem occurred.) I would really like to know what I need to do in order to make this message go away so that I can 'disable' my internet connection. Thanks!!

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

I would seriously look into a spyware infection. Download and run SpyBot and AdAware.
