I am unable to change my network card properties in Vista.
Every time I open the network card Properties I get the message...

Local Network
Some of the controls on this property sheet are disabled because one or more other Network property sheets are already open. To use these controls, close all these property sheets and then reopen this one.

The problem is that nothing is open. I've rebooted and the first thing I click on is the network icon in the system try and go to  Network and Sharing center > Manage network connnections > Right click on my network card and select Properties.... and I still get the message.

How can I get around that?

Try removing the NIC device from the device manager, reboot and try it again.
