I did a windows update and after doing so rebooted my laptop my dell inspirion 1525 prompted me telling me my wireless wlan card has issues and has found a solution , lol ive seen this mssg before from the dell support center and everytime i tried to update the driver there wasnt one available .I pushed no it wasnt helpful all of a sudden the laptop started trying to download driver stuff and prompted for me to insert the dell support software disc? Then I noticed lag on the internet and my network and sharing settings had been changed in regards to my file sharing and network discovery. I checked my panda and the network activity and noticed my internet explorer had open port 80 and multiple Ip addresses and also ports 443 and two dif ip addresses. Am I being completely paranoid or is something strange going on? I also saw extra processes i wasnt use to seeing in my task manager like wscript.exe and some other weird ones.

Please close this topic since this issue has been resolved. I uninstalled windows update that was causing the issue. I saw a post on the whatthetech.com forums about the problem windows xp update so i removed it and all seems well.
