Network list or options will not open

Ive never had problems with my laptop or networking till today.

I cant open the network list or options,ive tryed going through the control panel but when i press "connect to a network" it wont load.and when i try to click the icon on the bar it wont pop up either.

The only way i can connect to the internet right now is through plugging it straight to the modem since i have it set to auto connect,but i cant connect to the WiFi since the list wont show.ive ran a virus scan but it didnt bring up anything.

Is there any way to fix this problem?or do i have to go get someone to fix it like bestbuy?

Have you tried to run diagnostics on the wifi hardware? Perhaps it is failing?

Or perhaps, uninstall/reinstall the drivers for it, if that is possible?
