"An unexpected error occurred." accessing Network Connection's properties

Cause: seems like it suddenly happens after a recent Windows Update. I cannot ping or "remote desktop" to the computer. Trying to access network connection give me this error: "An unexpected error occurred."

This seems to fix the problem:
command line:
regsvr32 netshell.dll
regsvr32 ole32.dll

Then I can access the properties page, and I disable/re-enabled firewall. Everything coming back to normal.

Keep my fingers crossed. Waiting for more surprised from next automatic Windows Update.
