preperation guide link is dead
btw i am using an external wireless card to connect
One thing you might try is to download and install the latest driver for your wireless card. Sometimes this is just a driver issue.
If you care to look for malware on your computer, here is a working link:
See if you can relate to this for further evidence that you are infected:
There are usually, but not always, 4 stages to being infected.
- The computer exibits buggy behavior, such as warnings appear, or some program doesn't always work right, etc.
- The computer starts to run slow: takes longer to start, takes longer to shutdown, when you click on something it might delay a second or two before responding.
- You start to have connectivity problems. You can't get on the internet, or you keep getting bumped off the internet. The internet connection works real slow, etc.
- The computer won't boot.
I suspect you are at #3. If this list makes sense to you and you have already gone through stages 1 and 2, then this might be further evidence that you are infected with malware.
