Microsoft Windows Network The network is not present or not started

Windows Tips No Comments »

Make sure that the cable is not loose. if possible check the network card.
and if it is still so then you have to check the network service.

Click start -> run -> type services.msc

Locate Workstation.

Which will be the last in the list of services.

Make sure it is running else start the service.

I am using kaspersky antivirus. When i close it sometimes it asks whether to close the open network connection and i use to give yes.

It closes gtalk and other open connection which i was not aware.

May be it would have stopped the network service also.

So when i checked using services.msc it has been stopped but not sure whether it is because of anti virus.

Anyway, i started it and i could browse the local area network computers.
