Over the past few weeks I have been fighting with my computer to regain connectivity to the internet. Every time I boot the computer, my network connections disappear. I believe I have isolated the problem to the 'Network Connections' service (Netman) not starting properly. My theory is that when I removed a bunch of malware from the computer that some of the system files were corrupted as well. I am completely stuck on trying to figure this out and really want to try avoiding formatting the hard drive if at all possible. So far I have attempted the following:
- Running SFC
- Running CHKDSK
- Removing the hardware and letting Windows automatically detect it and reinstall.
