Windows 7 network side fails and crash on shutdown

After around a 3 week period of no internet provider set up in our new student house we connected our new line and the internet worked fine.

a few programs including windows and AVG required updates. Upon restart and installation of these updates the next day the computer could not find and connect to the network in our house. All of the other computers connect fine.

We have tried checking the network and connections section and found that when attempting to disable the network adaptor it would simply freeze whilst attempting this (not the entire system, just it being disabled). We then discovered the computer would not shut down properly. It would sit on the "shutting down" screen with the ring going round over and over.

We've tried running it in safe mode with networking and even system restoring to yesterday before both the AVG and windows updates were installed.

When trying to uninstall the network drivers to reinstall them it would not uninstall, the box saying uninstalling would appear but make no progress.

I've started an AVG scan now to check for any viruses .

Any help at all in this case would be appreciated. Post any information you require.

It's been incredibly frustrating to have the internet connect and work fine then simply not at all after an update.
