hi i am running:

Samsung R530/R730

windows 7 ultimate, service pack 1

Pentium dual core cpu

T4300 @ 2.10GHz x2

RAM 8.00GB

64bit OS


and my avg pc tune up software brought this to my attention! it gives me no option to update, install or roll back the driver and cant seem to find much info on the web about it other than the few steps ive tried i.e; Microsoft fix-it (didn't work), uninstalling the driver (made it disappeared altogether without the choice to reinstall, also lost the ability to connect to the internet obviously), also tried a program called "RestoreTCPIPProtocolDriverWindows7" (not sure what it did as it opened a CMD window and quickly disappeared) and finally i tried the winsock method (also did nothing)  


Attached File  pc pic.jpg   108.26KB   1 downloads


the reason i suspected malware is that i recently used "mall-ware bytes" and found a few things that avg had missed!

also everytime windows starts up a quick command pops up with the MCE icon and quickly disapears (might not be related but has only started doing it recently)


hope the infomation helps and will be happy to provide more! also sorry if this is in the wrong section of the forum but this is my first post here 

many thanks in advance

Okay so you currently cannot connect to the internet and you possibly uninstalled your network driver and you may have malware.


I guess we need to get your internet working so you can head over to the " am I infected ? " section of the forum and have the malware pros help you.


Have you tried going to the samsung website and downloading/installing the current network drivers?  That would be my first thing to try.  Do you connect to the internet via wired or wireless connection?  There are two separate drivers that I saw.  One for wired and one for wireless.
