Windows 7: There might be a problem with the driver for the Local Area Connection

There might be a problem with the driver for the Local Area Connection

I recently installed Kaspersky Internet Security 2011 on my computer and am now having a problem with my internet connectivity. When I run the Windows 7 Troubleshooter I get the message that says that 'There might be a problem with the driver for the Local Area Connection Adapter'. I have attempted many things to fix this.

I have uninstalled the drivers for the Network Adapter and that didn't fix it

I have run sfc/scannow and that didnt fix it

I tried ipconfig /dnsflush that didnt work

I cannot use ipconfig /renew and /release because it is not connected to the internet.

System restore will not work because there are no restore points.

I uninstalled Kaspersky and disabled Windows firewall hoping it might be a firewall issue. I also used their uninstaller that was recommended on Kaspersky's site.

I installed a USB wireless network adapter which changed the message from 'Local Area Connection Adapter to 'Wireless Area Connection adapter'.

Please help, I do not want to reinstall windows. If anyone has any advice that can help please let me know.

You said you uninstalled the drivers for your NIC, did you reinstall them, preferably the latest version of them ?? That should trigger a refresh of your IP stack in the event it's glitched.
