My near-new Dell PC (details below) started acting weird. Browser wouldn't open websites, or very ferw. Got the pop-up to send error report to Microsoft, came back informing me to run updates, which informed me to install XP SP3...
Now I can't get my USB wireless adaptor to connect to my wi-fi network at home...
I attempted to re-install the drivers for this device with no joy.

Tarq57 advised I should also post my anti-virus software installed. This is Norton NIS (which incidently I won off of Geekzone)...
I've also contacted Netgear who reckon my wifi adaptor suffered a hardware failure. Purchased new PCI wifi card, and my computer does not detect this either as new hardware... checked device manager - is completely blank!!!
