Error with Control Panel file C:\Windows\system32\netsetup.cpl.

Everytime I try to open the Control Panel in Windows XP, I get this annoying
message:

" An error pccured while Windows was working with the Control Panel file
C:\WINDOWS\system32\netsetup.cpl. "

All the programs in the Control Panel work fine. That message is the only
problem. I have SP2 installed. I've browsed all the threads, searching for a
user with a similar problem who might've solved it, but came up short. One
was close but, I didn't want to perform any task without knowing for sure
what the problem was and how to directly fix it.

Thanks for any help and suggestions.

Uninstall this crap!

You receive an "Error occurred while Windows was working with the Control
Panel file" error message when you open Control Panel in Windows XP SP2

Are you using Verizon? Or SBC?

netsetup.cpl is related to IPMON32. IPMON32 = IPMON32.exe

ipmon32.exe is an application from Verizon. It provides the user with
monitor diagnostic tools. It is known to consume large amount of resources.

[[Q: Is IP insight really needed?
A: No it's not necessary at all. It's a diagnostic tool that Verizon techs
can use to troubleshoot connection problems on your line. IP Insight is a
Quality of Service and/or diagnostic package - but it's not used by VOL at
this time - there's no back-end companion for tech support or NOC to use to
access it... It does send "phone home" data used to check latency and
network traffic occasionally, but like any other features that it contains
are unused or not implemented.]]

IPMon32.exe seems to be related to spyware.

C:\Program Files\Visual Networks\Visual IP InSight\SBC\IPMon32.exe

It worked! I uninstalled it and everything's fine. I'm using Verizon.
I appreciate your help and the info. I read everything. Now I have more
insight on Insight. Thanks a lot.
