Wireless Zero Configuration service doesn't start automatically
On this ancient laptop I need to have this service running in order to connect to the internet. However it doesn't start automatically, I have to manually right-click My Computer, select Manage, Services.. etc.. Every time..
I have the service to start 'automatically'. The other options are to 'disable' the service or make it 'manual'.
Why isn't it starting automatically and what can I do?
The OS is XP x86.

I've had this happen from time to time. For me it has always been caused by the OEM's wifi manager software they install on the laptop. It doesn't even have to be separate software, a lot of them bundle it with the driver for the wifi card, so you don't have a choice on installing it.
In cases where I can't track down the cause I just create a bat file to start the service and drop it in Startup, then set the service to always restart if it stops. I also put a shortcut to the bat on the desktop just in case I have to start it manual, I can just double click it from there and the service starts without the hassle of going through all those steps to get into the menu to start the service.
Just create a bat file and put this line in it:
net start "Wireless Zero Configuration"
