Network Adapter Drivers

I was removing malware from my computer when I was disconnected from the internet and I'm now unable to connect.


windows is telling me it's the drivers, so I reinstalled the Atheros8132 driver and I'm not seeing an error on that adapter now.

After installing the atheros8132 driver, the internet still wouldn't work. I tried running in safemode with networking and still could not connect.

Is this from a virus? Are there any drivers I could install?

Welcome to the Windows 7 support forums Duck,
what was the malware?
It seems you lost almost all your nic drivers.
Can you fill out your system specs on your profile page please.
Also if you know what your motherboard model is, update your chipset drivers.

First try running the sfc /scannow command at the command prompt. That should find and fix any system files that may have been delated or corrupted.
