I recently got hit with the antivirus XP 2008 virus/malware. I was able to eradicate it from my laptop win XP system with advice from this forum (using Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware) and it worked well. Thanks to all. Now, after a bootup, I do not automatically connect to my wifi (as before). I need to right-click tray the icon (wifi) and do a repair , basically resetting my wifi card. Is there a fix for this? I would really like to return to the automatically connecting w/o this process.

Thanks for your attention to this matter.

Have you tried removing and reinstalling the driver for it?
