I need to enable the "Ping Status" monitor but when I click on properties it is listed as "disabled" and the check box is grayed out so i can't enable it. I have tried to search the Administrative settings and what-not but I'm unable to find out how to enable a disabled, grayed out monitor.

Does anyone know?

Thanks very much for the Screen shots,

Well it looks like a GPO to me, well normally anything greyed out is considered as some sort of policies,
review your GPO, and regkeys, I will also go through them and see what comes up.

Cheers

Hi Donald,

sorry for the late reply, to be honest with you i haven't been able to find much on the issue you have,
becuase i don't have the exact the enviroment as yours, as mentioned above, the issue you have would be mostly related to some sort of GPO, please follow the link the below for which i provided an answer for an outlook issue a similar type of issue.
