RE: Connection Properties Sharing Tab Disappeared in Vista!!!
You might try uninstalling (Device Manager) the NIC Adapter on which the ICS
is running and then rebooting.. Hopefully, it will reinstall the network
And, disable any other NICs you might have installed...
Also, if you are not using IPv6, and after you reinstall the NIC, you might
try removing this version, unless of course, you are using IPv6 and not v4..
