Once I have started these services I have to go to the "advanced settings" of my "Wireless Network Connection" and go to the "wireless network" tab and click the "use windows to configure my wireless network settings" tab. After all of this is done sometimes my computer will be able to connect to my wireless internet, sometimes. When the computer does connect, it takes about 15 to 20 minutes before all of the manually started services suddenly stop again and are not able to be restarted until I log off and back onto my user name.
My guess is that all of this is the cause of some kind of Virus, Spyware, or Malware. I have used many kinds of free removal programs and none find all of the problems. I downloaded a trial version of Spyware Doctor and Adware Pro, both found around 750 problems with my computer but wouldn't fix them unless I brought their very overpriced product.
So, my questions to you are, what is wrong with my computer? how can I fix it for free? and how do I prevent this from happening?
Thank you for your help.
