My computer is having troubles, I can't be sure if it is virus related or not, but I think so. The first problem is that windows cannot detect any wireless networks. In the connect to a network dialog box, there are no options available, but the hardware is good. I can supersede this issue by manually configuring every detail of a wireless network and telling windows to connect even when not in range and even when network is not broadcasting. This is how I've been connecting wirelessly for the past several months. Also, the Dell Wireless WLAN card utility which came installed on my computer is able to pick up and display available networks and strengths without issue, but attempting to connect from the utility simply redirects me to windows' non-functioning dialog box. Also, the dialog box contains no options for SHOW. Normally, this drop down menu would let you choose somethings, but mine is empty.
The other problem I'm facing is sound. There is none. I believe my hardware to be good, because when I use the system tray icon to mute the speaker, I can hear a "tup" sound coming from the speaker.
A third and perhaps unrelated issue, but that has shown up at the exact time as the other two, is that any videos being played through an internet browser are choppy and very slow and very terrible. Even fully buffered videos have this problem if played in a browser. Choosing a different browser doesn't help. However, if I download a video and play it with a non-internet based video player, VLC for instance, the video can play just fine.
I've run malwarebytes and aVast! but I've had no luck catching any viruses. Please Help! Let me know what extra information you may need to help me out.
