Windows 7: Issues with devices; (error 28) not recognizing wireless adapter

Issues with devices; (error 28) not recognizing wireless adapter

Hey hows it going? My problem with my computer is that under device manager my ethernet, USB controllers and wireless adapter appear w/o their drivers. I never had this issue before. But funnily enough, I everything is fine except for my wireless adapter. Windows cannot recognize it and so I can't install the drivers for it. This just started happening a couple of days ago but I don't really have any clue why. All I can think of is there is a virus going round.

So far all I can think of is doing a fresh install of windows.

Anything else that might see the end to this madness?
