Windows Wireless LAN 802.11 Extensibility Framework Error Message

I wonder of anyone can help. In the last month I have been getting the following message appear every time I log on to my laptop.

"Windows Wireless LAN 802.11 Extensibility Framework stopped working and was closed"

This does not appear to stop me from connecting to a wireless network however, it now takes longer for the connection to be made. The connection is only made after this message is displayed (before this no networks are visible).

I have tried rolling back to a known recovery point before this message was displayed and checking the driver is up to date for the Intel® WiFi Link 5100 AGN adaptor (the message comes back that it is the latest driver), without success. :)

Hi mate, sorry for the delay. Is this issue still happening?

Is there an updated driver available for download directly from Intel website?

Have you tried completely uninstalling the drivers for the device and then reboot, install latest version drivers?
