Access Denied - No network cards found

I have NetSetMan installed on a Vista notebook and am receiving an Access Denied error when I try to refresh my network adapters.  NetSetMan shows no network adapters found, but manually configuring the IP settings works fine using the windows applet.

I have tried clearing out the WMI repository and that didn't work. 

Now to qualify this, I did have an issue after installing AIM 6 that I could no longer access the network configuration or settings and needed to issue a -- net localgroup Administrators "NT Authority\Local Service" /add  to get the networking app to start working again.  So I believe there is likely a permission that needs to be reset to get NetSetMan to run again, but I am not sure where to start.

Any help would be appreciated.  Thanks!

Re: Access Denied - No network cards found

Is NetSetMan running with administrator privileges? It should ask you for that when you run it. If you have deactivated the UAC confirmation dialog you can also right-click the exe and chose "Run as administrator".
