Windows 7: Disconnecting

Disconnecting

I don't know if this is a security concern or not, but my laptop yesterday has started disconnecting from my wireless network. All my other (non-Windows) computers on my network are connected fine. Does anyone know what might be causing this? I have checked my internet equipment and everything is connected fine and always ON.

I just ran MBAM and found some pieces of malware in my computer. Their category is classified as Registry Keys. Would this have something to do with it?

Does it have a Hijack.display property? If so... just ignore it.

Have you let MBAM clear the entries?

Is your PC still disconecting?

No, Adware would not have an impact on your wireless connection. If the results indicated trojan, that could be another story.

Have you tried Troubleshooting? When the connection is lost, click the Start Orb and type troubleshooting. It will be listed under Control Panel.
