First off: thanks for reading my post...
Anyway, my computer has been having virus problems and reading a post here on bc helped me use malwarebytes to remove either the virus or at least some symptoms. While I am no longer getting popups or anything, my computer cannot detect wireless signals that it was getting just before the restart that ocurred after running malwarebytes. Yes I have checked the manual switch and restarted my computer, but it still doesn't detect anything. The computer that I'm posting this from is running off of the same wireless so I know that isn't the problem. Thank you for any help you can provide :thumbsup:

If all you did was run Mbam, it's highly doubtful you are totally clean and you are still seeing problems caused by malware

I was going to proceed with an assortment of other programs suggested by bc, but without an internet connection I can't really access them. Tomorrow I will have access to the wireless at my work that I can see if I get any results with that

Download to a flash drive WinsockXPfix.exe and transfer to your desktop and run it.

This has a 50% chance of solving your problem.

Thanks for the advice. Someone at IT services fixed my problem by what he referred to as something like uninstalling the wireless drivers and reinstalling them. He did this on my computer without any CDs or downloads in about 5 minutes. I appreciate your help
