I have an odd problem that I can't figure out. I recently had a malware/virus issue that was resolved. However, after the issue was resolved, it was discovered that I was missing numerous Windows XP critical updates. after visiting the update site and rebooting I now have an issue with my wireless internet. I still have an internet connection, however I have a poor signal quality and the tray icon "wireless network connection status" is always present trying to "acquire a network address". Please Note, this an HP laptop with windows XP Sp3. It uses the HP wireless network assistant to set up the internet connection. however I never had this problem even when I was infected with virus/malware. I also never had this happen anywhere that my spouse went, it always connected without any problems. I wasn't until I went to windows update that this problem happened. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
