By blowing out the stack I assume you mean using the netsh int ip reset command. I did this. I removed the card, and removed my wireless driver from the device manager. I couldn't then remove the program from add/remove programs as that couldn't find the files. I then run netsh int up reset again. When I restart it then reload the drives straight away without asking for their location. It did however remove the wireless connection and create a new one in the network connections manager. However it still did not find any wireless networks.
When I did try to remove the program before removing from the device manager, it just caused the device manager to be removed and when I restarted, the wireless network connection was the same as before, i.e. it had not been recreated.
It may be that my computer is still infected and something is stopping it from not being so but I still think it is more like that there is a problem left over from a removed virus.
Coincidences do indeed happen. About 1 month ago my RAM failed as I was trying to log onto one user, whilst my computer was trying to log into the default user. Whilst not connected it occured when I was doing something different to usual.
I'm going to see if I can try the card in another laptop tomorrow, unless someone has another idea of what to do before then. The only thing about doing this is that the other laptop is a win98 one so I wouldn't be testing in an XP environment.
Thanks for your help
EDIT UPDATE: I tried to run Malwarebytes earlier but my computer crashed. Any way having just run it, it found 8 infected objects.in AppCert and also 1 value in the regeistary: under local machine.....explorer\browser settings\mu. THe value being mu. I've removed this and I will see what happens later today, when I get time.
