HOWEVER...my wireless internet connections has not been the same since...it will not stay connected for more than about 10 minutes and it disconnects and the box pops up that says the preferred wireless could not be found...and i have to right click and pick repair.

Hello wva_geek, and Welcome to Geeks To Go.

Since the problems began after the virus incident I suggest you go to the Malware Removal and Spyware Removal forum and run all the steps located in the START HERE thread. These self-help tools will allow you to clean up to 70% of problems on your own. If you are still having problems after performing these steps, then please follow Step Five: Rootkit Detection and Step Six: Post an OTListIt2 Log; ensure you post your logs in the Malware Removal and Spyware Removal forum. If you are unable to run and/or post any of these logs, then mention that in your initial post in the topic you create in that forum.

If you are still having problems after being given a clean bill of health from the malware expert, then please return to THIS thread and we will pursue other options to help you solve your current problem(s).

This issue can be caused when the driver is not the correct up to date driver.
Please tell us the make and model of your machine AFTER you get a clean bill of health from the malware experts.
