You can last ditch trying running whatever the tool posted above is.

Yes you can. Here are the steps.

Hit Windows + R to bring up your Run box
Enter services.msc and press enter
In the list of services, find WLAN AutoConfig (if using Vista/7)
Right click and choose Properties
Set the Startup Type to Disabled via the dropdown menu
Click the Stop button
Click Apply and then Ok

See what happens. If you disconnect from your wireless altogether, then there is no third party program that is controlling the WiFi in your computer. Reverse the steps to get WiFi back on.

Just wanted to confirm that after doing this, my internet problem was completely fixed. It is now back to the way it was and i am very grateful for everyone's help.

Glad it worked for you and didn't cost anything. Apparently a malfunctioning windows service, that just needed restarting.
