Hi VistaKing,

Tried starting the BFE using the bat file, still no success

Also tried to start the service manually but its not starting.

Is the driver corrupted in some way due to virus?

Awaiting the next action item.

Cheers!!

Hi VistaKing,

Tried restoring Internet connection again no success

Its just not detecting any wireless connections and also not starting firewall.

Anything else you want me to try?

Cheers!!

Open up the Device Manager .

click on right click on Computer select Manage. If you get a User Access Control window click on the Yes button . Once Computer Management opens up click on Device Manager on the left hand side.

Do you have any symbols ?

There is your reason why you have no Internet . You would need to download the drivers for those items .

Hi VistaKing,

How and from where do I download the drivers?

How were they lost? Did it happen due to some virus?

Feeling slightly better.

Cheers!!!
