Wireless Zero Config Service will not stay on

I have a Dell D820 mobile computer.  For some reason if the computer is turned off the wireless zero conf service will not be started the next time the laptop is powered on.  Each time I have to go into services and restart the wzc service.  In properties it's set for automatic and the laptop is not using a dell proprietary wireless service that I know of.  How can I set this laptop to always keep this service on or what do I need to look for that may be causing this issue?

Open Dell's WLAN client, and at the top of the window there is a checkbox that you can uncheck that asks whether or not you want to use the Dell client to manage your wireless connections.

If that doesn't work, remove the device (by uninstalling in device manager).  Restart and then (if it doesn't start automatically) run the add new hardware wizard.

OK, figured it out.  IPASS has a wireless function i was unaware of that was usurping the wireless service.  Shut it down and all is well.  The laptop was stripped of any dell wireless software but killbrad you pointed me in the right direction so enjoy the points.
