Can you get hold of a copy of Malwarebytes Anti-Malware and do a full scan and see what comes up?

Yeah.. something must be wrong with the wireless adapter. Even if I restore to when it was working at times it'll stop working. fml

When I restore it or there is a Windows update the next reboot it'll work fine but after a few hours of use it will display:

Don't know whats going on. :S
