Unable to search for WiFi Networks

Hello there!
got an issue on my notebook with windows 7. Everything was running smoothly, but recently I disabled some essential windows service (unfortunately don´t know which one) and now I cant search for networks as described in title.
Any advice is very appreciated.

Welcome to the forum not knowing what you have done the quickest way would be a system restore or first check WLAN AutoConfig Service - Windows 7 - YouTube
