Angry "Error Disabling Connection- It is not possible to disable the connection... help?

Ok out of nowhere I'm getting this problem. I go into network connections, then I try to disable my lan connection and enable my wireless and bamm...

"Error Disabling Connection- It is not possible to disable the connection at this time. This connection may have one or more protocals that do not support Plug-and-Play"

What the heck?

I've tried a scan on my antivirus software - failed
Ran adaware - failed
Disabled uPnP - failed

I can disable either in the device manager but anytime I tried to enable the wireless I get a "connection failed".

Any help?

I would perform a last known good configuration, you seems to have some serious issues

Go into the device manager (Control Panel -> System -> Hardware -> Device Manager) and disable it from there.

I think I've seen this problem before. What happen when you try disabling it in safe mode with networking?
