Windows 7: Zero Configuration not prompting for password

Zero Configuration not prompting for password

I have a computer that no matter what network i try to connect to (with a password), it never asks me to put in a password after clicking the connect button. I have several other laptops that work just fine and this happens at multiple locations so it's not an issue from the router.

I have scanned for malware using MalwareBytes and Combofix which both came up with nothing besides adware, reinstalled the wireless network driver from Compaq/HP, and deleted all current profiles. Attempted to add the wireless network manually doesn't work either. After clicking the Add button, nothing happens or comes up on the screen.

Anyone have ideas on how to get the Windows Zero Configuration to work again?
