this is what i get

issues found
windows wireless service is not running on this computer not fixed
wireless service is also called WLAN autoconfig service

its also not showing up any avaliable connections in the 'network and sharing centre' and when you 'connect to a network' nothing happens.

only strange thing is when i connect the laptop to the router direct via a cable it works on the internet.ive browesd a few other forums looking for helps but i thought it be better to start here properly.

ive tried sfc/scannow and no dice.

also when i 'services.msc' to make sure WLAN autoconfig is turned to automatic(which it is)but then try to manually 'start' it i get Error 193: 0xc1

any help would amazing and really well received,i appologise in advance for my first thread being a long one but my theory was get as much info down as possible to try and make solving the problem easier.lastly i would like to thank people in advance for any input they give.

happy holidays all!
