    ok, let me explain the situation, i have an 13.3 aluminium macbook (before apple turned the alu mb into mbp)

    i use an ethernet cable from my laptop to my xbox 360 to enable me to get onto xbox live. For this i have internet sharing ticked to on.

    however now i cannot turn internet sharing off! The tick will not dissapear, and its not locked at this point btw.

    any advice on what to do would be greatly appreciated!

    thanks a lot

    Do you have the preference pane locked? I think you wrote that the padlock is unlocked, just checking:p

    Try onyx to check for corrupted preference files

    Heard of Google? Well, Google will help you find Onyx. (Hint: it's the first search result!)
