Windows 7: Manage wireless networks - access denied

Manage wireless networks - access denied

My wireless connection will not connect automatically to my BigPond Netgear modem since last week. It always linked fine previously. I go to the 'Manage wireless networks' window and notice no networks listed.
When I attempt to add my wireless network and fill in all the details required, including the security key, I get an 'access denied" message.
This happens even when logged in to the 'real' administrators account. Does anybody have any suggestions, Bigpond had no ideas !!

Manage wireless networks - access denied

When I click on the wireless network icon etc., I am presented with a text box asking for "the 8 digit pin number from the router display" with a link "connect using security key instead".
Previously the PC would automatically log in without any input required, (as I had requested in the 'manage wireless connections' settings).

Sounds like an installed antivirus has something to do with this. Which A/V are you running?
