Windows 7: Ethernet & Network Controller Problem

Ethernet & Network Controller Problem

Basically I re-installed Windows 7 (Home Premium if it makes a difference) and wiped my hard-dive to attempt to get rid of a virus that made my computer crash constantly on start up. It didn't work, but that is beside the point.

Now I'm getting driver errors about my Ethernet and Network Controller, and I can not connect to the internet with wireless or cables. Apparently I have WAN Miniport Network adapters and no other Network adapters.

If anyone could help me tell me what information I need to post for assistance that would be great.
