Windows 7: Hardware/Wifi Adapter/Program Malfunctioning

19 Apr 2011   #11

Windows 10 Pro X64

Please be specific. Which ones did you download, what was it called when you saved it to your hard drive and what is the exact error message.

As for all those Microsoft 6to4 adapters. See the post by Lionel Chen in this thread: Microsoft 6to4 adapter

You said "the problem is 36263163189% NOT from my router/connection point". What does this mean? Can you explain it a bit please.

I'm wondering what happened. From what you say, everything was working and now it doesn't. Did you do anything while at your sisters, like reinstall Win 7?

Something weird is going on with your computer so it would be a good idea to check for malware. You can try doing this yourself. What anti-virus software do you havbe installed on your computer? Do a full scan with it. Also download and run Malware Bytes Anti Malware Free, see if it finds anything.

Or register (free) at one of the web sites that handles malware, like,,,, etc.

Glad to hear you fixed it. Spybot is good but if it was my computer I would do a bit more checking just to be sure.

Download and run Malware Bytes Anti Malware (Free), do the quick scan.
Also run one of the online AV scanners. They all require you to use Internet Explorer because they need to install an ActiveX component to run the scan.
What anti-virus program do you have installed? If you're running without one (terrible idea) I would recommend Microsoft Security Essentials. It's very good and has a little or no impact on your system performance.
