Wireless Management Service error

I'm getting the following error on boot.  I can't seem to locate anything in regards to clearing it.

Wireless Management Service encountered a problem and needed to close.

Lenovo T43 laptop running XP SP3.
Wireless card is Intel Pro 2200BG

Thanks for any help.

Download the latest version of the 2200BG PRO/set and drivers package from http://www-307.ibm.com/pc/support/site.wss/document.do?lndocid=MIGR-70504 (the 37MB file there).

Uninstall the Intel PRO/set connection manager in Add/Remove Programs.
In Device Manager, open Network Adapters, right-click the wireless card and choose Uninstall. (this step is what actually uninstalls the drivers for the wireless card.)

When that's done, if it says you must reboot, go ahead and do so, otherwise just run the PRO/set install package (7vwc15ww.exe) and let it install the driver/connection manager again.

See if that gets rid of the error.

Could you please tell us exactly what the error is?

I do not find any mention of ''Wireless Management error'' on Lenovo's or Intel's support pages.

Exactly.   There is very little info on this error (It's in the original post above).

Open regedit to:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\S24EventMonitor
and change the "Start" value to 4.

I will credit this fix to orangutang in thread

(if it works).

I searched the database here for the s24evmon.exe filename and found that in the first hit I opened.

Thanks so much to the Dar247 and Orangutang.  I had same problem with T41p almost since I started using.  Had already spent much time installing most current compatible driver, etc.  What a joy to see the wireless come up!  My first experience with expert-exchange and a real success.
