As stated in the topic title, I can't detect internet networks - the icon just freezes with the circle indicating that it's detecting but when I try to troubleshoot it says it can't. I can't enable Microsoft Security Essentials. Malwarebytes and Microsoft Security Scanner scans come up clean. If I create a new Windows user account I can log into that one and everything will work properly until the next time I turn on the computer and that account will have the same problems as well. I've tried a number of things that appear to fix the problem until the next time I turn on my computer.


SOLVED: not a virus/malware

Impatience led me to do more google searching which led me to doing a clean boot and eventually figuring out it was the fault of an out of date Bluetooth driver. -_- More details/solution if anyone else comes here with this problem: http://h30434.www3.hp.com/t5/Notebook-Lockups-Freezes-Hangs/Bluetooth-Device-Monitor/m-p/2951377
