This Toshiba Satellite running Vista SP2 started having trouble with the wifi initially and the CPU was constantly very busy. Now I can't connect to the internet at all. The LAN says it is not connected, but when I plug in the cable the green light comes on as if it knows it's there.
On startup, it always says it has found a new hardware - unknown device and then eventually it will tell me that the driver software installation failed - this is apparently pointing to Eset firewall miniport. I have uninstalled Eset and reinstalled it (which made it worse because it cannot update the database without an internet connection!). Also an error on startup - Windows script host - liveupdate.js - system cannot find the file specified.
I have run SpyBot and Malwarebytes - no problems identified.
I am confused about this - hardware or software fault?
Can you help me sort this out?

Most real-time systems focus on fault-tolerant hardware or software. software or hardware fault tolerance is often overlooked. Its really surprising, because the hardware components are much higher than the reliability of the software that runs on them. Most system designers make great efforts to minimize the consequences of a hardware failure on system performance.
