    Migrating from SBS 2003 R2 to a new DELL SBS 2008 box and everything was
    going great until I ran the Connect to the Internet wizard. It finds the

    stopped working and was closed" error every time. Can't move onto the next
    step until this is resolved. Says it needs to run the Connect to the

    I also get a "Faulting application wmiprvse.exe ... faulting module
    msvcrt.dll" in the Event Log
