    Default Unstable Wireless

    I just got my laptop from my parents so I decided to follow the malware detection/removal steps posted elsewhere on the forum. (installing ccleaner, HJT etc)

    My wireless was working perfectly fine while I was downloading those programs, and there were no wireless problems beforehand. However, after running the programs, my wireless became unstable and I have not been able to connect online for more then 3-5 minutes before it cuts off, then tries to find a wireless network, reconnects, etc.

    I am a complete dunce with computers so I'll try to post everything I can that I think will help?

    Windows XP home edition
    SP3
    ASUS A3V
    Intel(R) Pentium(R) M 1.60 GHz
    798 MHz, 512 MB of RAM

    Try doing a System Restore to a point before you ran the programs.

    Click on Start, All Programs, Accessories, System Tools, System Restore. Click on Next. Look in the left pane for a date shown in bold type that is just before you ran everything. Highlight the date and keep clicking on Next till you finish. The machine will restart and should take you back to that time. Bear in mind that you may lose recent files, so copy them to an external source like a flashdrive.
