I was infected with the Windows 7 virus and took the precautions from this website to fix it, scanned everything and fixed all. Computer is running smoothly and speed has been restored. Now though, it will not allow me to use the internet. Stays stuck at Identifying with a yellow caution sign. I am runing windows 7 starter and i only wish to be able to use my internet again!

Go to Start type in device manager and click Network Under that do see any X or "!" in the Network Click on the Network card or Wireless Nic and select properties Does it read "this device is working properly"

Please run the Network Troublshooter http://windows.microsoft.com/en-us/windows7/using-the-network-troubleshooter-in-windows-7

did you delete the HOST file and download a clean verison of that file 17, and 18

It states "this device is working properly"
Also, I have not messed with the Host file.
Troubleshooting gives me a response of, Problem with wireless adapter or access point.
