No wireless networks were found in range, Virus Related

  1. Hi, I have a Satellite that will cannot find any wireless networks, and I think it's virus related. :( :( :(

    Opening Internet Explorer gives me a pop-up that reads:
    I need to dl AVG, adaware & spybot, but I cannot connect, so I have to troubleshoot the network to get online. I went to Toshiba.com to find a repair utility to maybe reinstall missing drivers or whatever the utilities do, but there were 42 downloads! :rolleyes:

    Then someone told me to get the Ultimate Boot CD, but that has so many options, I'm scared I'll break the PC! :eek:

    Any ideas?

    Thanks!​

    First off, the pop-up is probably spyware advertising it self. If you get the pop up, then the Satellite is
    a. either already connected or
    b. has connected in the past.

    Since you are able to post, why not use the machine you are posting from to download HijackThis, AVG, Adaware and Spybot. Then burn a CD with the files on it.

    ALSO, check and make sure the wireless lan switch on the Satellite, either on the front, or the side is turned ON. The default is for them to be OFF.

    The simplest things can cause the biggest problems. Glad to hear you are back online.
