So I received my new HTC Shift yesterday and like any good citizen, after installing some AntiVirus software, I went crazy and ran Windows Update. Now in this brave new world we live in, Vista SP1 has been released to Windows Update and I duely installed it. I was happily using the shift on the train this morning over HSDPA and hibernated Windows (by habit). When I got to work, I resumed Windows and got an error saying Sh*gCtrl (trying to dodge the profanity filter - replace '*' with 'a') has "stopped working". This seemed fairly innocent, but then I realised that I can't now enable either the HSDPA modem or the WiFi card in Vista (note: HSDPA still works in WinMo).
I did a bit of Googling and came up with a hit on XDA developers suggesting that it can be fixed by re-installing the HTC Control Center app by running c:\program files\htc\control\setup.exe, which I tried, with no luck. To be fair to the original poster of this, he did come back and say that it only briefly fixed his issue.
So... I'm wondering if anyone else has come across this and more importantly, has anyone fixed it? I have submitted a support request at HTC.com and am awaiting their response .
Thanks in advance!!
