i cant connect wirelessly (right now im on a wired connection). it wont detect any networks at all (something it was able to do earlier today as well).. eg. it has a red X over the wireless network locater when I know im around multiple networks .. when i flip the switch to turn the wireless on, the little light next to the wireless logo doesnt light up (im not sure if its supposed to, ive never really noticed it before). the only thing i could think of is there was something about replacing my "HOST" file i read to do in the instructions for getting rid of antivirus action, and maybe that messed something up.

either way, id be greatly appreciative if someone can help me get my sound and connectivity back!!!! this doesnt seem like it should be too too hard to fix, but i have no idea where to even begin
thanks in advance!! (if this should go in a different forum, please let me know too).

i got the antivirus action bug last night. i was able to clear it up with the malwarebytes thing this morning, and it looks like its gone for good. i since listened to music and was able to connect to the internet, but for some reason when i turned my computer on again about an hour later, i cant do either. in the bottom right corner of my screen, theres an x on the microphone and when i hover over it, it says "no audio output device is installed". now i just listened to music and then shut my computer off and it was like that when it rebooted. so i know i didnt uninstall anything.

So you're still experiencing internet connectivity problems? Does Windows report any error messages? Have you followed the troubleshooting suggestions for connecting to a wireless network?
