Make sure a WIRED connection works. If it does, you might try searching for updates that way. Before you do, turn ON automatic driver installation: Drivers - Turn Off Automatic Driver Installation - after this, install all updates and drivers offered.

Did you follow all the tutorials I gave previously?

Restart your computer

Did you set your computer up to discover networks? Network Discovery - Turn On or Off in Windows 7

Did you look inside the case to 1. make sure you have a wireless network adapter (hardware) installed, and 2. that it isn't loose.

Can you search for a network now? *See below V*

Go to network and sharing center, click "connect to network". If yours isn't listed, perhaps it wasn't set up yet? Click "Set up a new connection or network" and follow the wizard.

Go to the action center and click troubleshoot, also found here:
Control Panel\All Control Panel Items\Troubleshooting . With the computer plugged in via the WIRED connection (if it works), troubleshoot network and internet problems.
My wired connection does work.

Auto driver installation is on.

Network Discovery is on.

Sorry but Wireless service is still not enabled.

Well mate, try a repair install: Repair Install
It will keep your programs. Follow all that it says to do.

I'm not sure what is going on. It sounds like you said you've done all the tutorials I've given, including troubleshooting yourself on your computer with the windows troubleshooter.

It sounds like you've not touched the Services.msc section, right? Have you scanned for malware using your fully updated antivirus software through a full scan?

I'd go with the repair install. failing that, i'd do a complete reinstall.

Before you do anyhting else, you might throw up a snip of your installed programs so I can check it out to see if anything is potentially interfering with the normal operation.

2 things you do not want to have: a registry cleaner/optimizer or a computer optimizer. Always increases the chance of mesing up a program, driver, or system file.
