Provider Order Tab Missing

We have a Win2K3/Novell environment... I have a client machine that does not display the Provider order tab.  Advanced settings comes up to display the Adapters and bindings tab, but that Provider tab is MIA.  This seems to be affecting this machines ability to connect to a print server as well.  We really do not want to re-image this machine if we can get away with it.  We are not sure what could have caused this issue, since no other machine in our domain has this problem.

Thanks,

Rob

PeteLong,

That hack does get me into the provider order, and does change the order, BUT... I need to find out why that Provider Order Tab does not show up.  There MUST be a way to restrict a user from gaining access to that provider order tab.  I can use a Group Policy to restrict access to the Advanced Settings Dialog, (Administrator Restricted) But, I still cannot find anything that has removed and/or restricted visiblity of the Provider Order Tab.  Any other Thoughts???

Thanks for your reply,


Rob

Thanks for keeping this open for a bit longer... We still cannot get that provider order tab to be disabled, even with PeteLong's Reg hack.  Any other ideas?

Thanks,

Rob
