Hello,
I have sucessfully completed my work with the malware section of the forum and I still have a particular bug on my computer. When I start up the computer, my USB wireless connection does not automatically start up.It shows "aquiring address" but never seems to complete the process. I need to right click on the wireless icon in the tray and select "repair" and then it connects every time. Sometimes unpplugging and replugging the adapter itself works too, but the repair method id for sure. Any ideas?

Please try reinstalling the software driver and or clearing the network profile which is the first time you detected your home network SSID and entered the pre-shared key. Then manually connect again by your home network and make sure connect automatically is checkmarked.

Thanks for taking this up jhayz,
The driver I can figure out, but I am not too sure what you mean by clearing out the network profile and how to accomplish that.

Just right-click your wireless adapter - properties - ipv4, wireless connection in xp and network and sharing(vista and 7) manage wireless network then delete.

Hello Jhayz,
I do not see the ipv4 I have TCP/IP v6 Is that the relevant one to delete instead?

Ok, after some fumbling I seem to have correctly removed and reinstalled my wireless connector. I have started the machine about 6 times now and it seems to be connecting on startup just fine.
Thank you guys yet again...
