Hello all....LONG time visitor/reader....first time poster. This one has me stumped. I have a Gateway laptop...Windows XP home. My computer recently had ANTIVIRUS 2009 after my friend borrowed and got it infected. It was terrible, but it was able to connect to the net still. I downloaded and installed and ran Malwarebytes and it immediately found the rogue program. It finished and I proceeded to remove it with the program. It restarted and poof it was gone. Now, Windows will NOT recognize any wireless networks or connect to any wifi internet connections. The device manager sees that the card is turned on and working properly. My other PC still recognizes the network and connects just fine and dandy. But not the "fixed" laptop. Please help...ANY input will be greatly appreciated and I hope to be fortunate enough to solve this problem. Thanks!

Hello Triplesixkoe,

Can you connect to the internet through wired interface?
If so I would run some free online virus scanners.

1.Eset
2.Kaspersky
3.Bitdefender
4.Panda
5.McAfee

The event viewer may give some more information.

1. Click Start select run
2. Type eventvwr.exe
3. Press enter
4. Search through the groups for errors and warnings.
5. Double click on each error and or warning.
6. Locate the copy to clipboard button, Posted Image (under the two arrows)
7. Let us know what you find. (paste the results)

Some devices may not be working correctly, check the Device Manager.

1. Click Start then run
2. Type devmgmt.msc and press enter
3. Look through the list for yellow or red marks next to the entries.
4. Let us know what you find.
Regards,

Alan.
