I am not sure if I have a virus or if I just need to fix some type of setting.
I am able to get online, when I go to the task bar icon the globe is also showing I am connected, but when I click on it, it says not connected, connect to a network. When I try to disconnect and reconnect it says connected but when you go to the network sharing center it still says not connected, even though I am able to get online. I have my xbox connected to my computer but the xbox canīt find the computer anymore. The computer is able to see the xbox on the map but in network sharing center it does not connect or find it. I also cannot print on my wireless printer.
I have reset the router and set it up again 2. deleted every wireless profile on the computer 3. deleted an recent CANON wireless printer driver update 4. of course, unplugged router and comcast modem (both at the same time, and then one by one for a minute and a minuted between connecting each one)

The same day this happened, a windows defender update was installed (KB915597).

if anyone has any ideas as to what i can try or suggestions ?? I have windows Vista
