My laptop cannot connect to homenetwork wirelessly.
My laptop got infected with viruses. I reformated the hard drive and reinstalled the xp operating system. System is operating fine. I can go on line with ethernet cable connected to my homenetwork wireless router. I think I lost the driver for integrated wireless system.

Well,if you don't want to buy a software to erase it,then you should have to reinstall your operating system,delete all partition,and INSTALL AN ANTIVIRUS try AVG antivirus,it's FREE and easy to update,don't want to buy something don't you? P.S it's hard to restore a computer which is already infected without reinstalling the operating system
There are two types of password:
1. BIOS password. To remove the BIOS password, the solution is, remove the BIOS battery. Location of the BIOS battery, the bottom of the laptop. So you have to unscrew the bottom of the laptop, find the BIOS battery and release approximately 7 seconds, then plug it back. Then, turn on the laptop, enter the BIOS by pressing F2, do the setting the date, time, etc.
2. Password Log on. When turning on the laptop, and log on, then we are asked to enter a password, but we never give password to log on. However,
when we enter the password, always fails, it means the virus-infected
operating system (operating system has been controlled by a virus). These cases often I meet, the Windows XP operating system is infected with the virus. The solution is to reinstall the operating system. Repair operating system, or breaking into password virus, I've tried, but always failed. So, the best solution is to reinstall the operating system.
If you are using Windows 7, you can fix with, insert the Windows operating system CD, then boot from the CD Room. Solutions you can do:
1. Boot from CD Room, select Next - select Repair your computer - Next - select System Image Recovery

After driveC,D,E,Fcleanfrom viruses,youcanopen the driveC,D,E,F.Youdon't have toworry about losingdata,because Windows7,will backupyour datain a folderWindows.old.InWindows.oldfolder,there are three folders:Programfiles,Users,Windows.Data storedin MyDocuments,can be foundin theUsersfolder.
What diffiulty you are facing in reformatting? You should just put the CD (the original OS CD which came with the laptop and restart the laptop). If you do not have the CD you an just simply put in any operating system CD in and restart the laptop and follow the steps. Make sure when it ask you to perform a quick formatting just select NTFS formatting. Note: I would suggest to back up all your important documents before you do that as everting will be gone once you reformat your hard drive. If your machine is shutting down before it let you save anything, on the command prompt simply put the command 'shutdown -a ' quickly save your work to an external hard drive and after that you can reinstall your OS(operating system).
Hope that helped!
Generally, when a firewall or antivirus application fails to load, a virus is the suspect cause. Many viruses are designed to attack/disable the firewall/antivirus as to infect the system. If the operating system has beenn compromised to the point you can only boot in the safe mode, the likelyhood of removing the viruses and still being able to repair the operating system WITHOUT a clean reinstall of Windows is not great.
Things you can try.
If you have more than one computer, see if you can connect this drive to a healthy system, and remove the infection.
Run hardware diagnostics on the hard drive, as a hardware failure can mimic a software problem by files being damaged writing them to bad sectors of the media.
If you can access the internet in safe mode with networking, or can access internet with another system, you can download several programs/tools to try to remove any infections. www.gur,in is one page with a large assortmant of tools to try to use to remove any infection. Sometimes you can install and run these in the safe mode or use safemsi.exe to enable some installers to run in the safe mode.
If the hard drive fails diagnostics then you will have to replace the hard drive. If it passes diagnostics, and attempts to remove infection fail, boot to XP cd, format the hard drive and do a clean install of windows the reinstall all drivers and applicaitons. If the format fails, replace the hard drive
boot to a bott disk if it is an older system which it appers to be type format c: /u/s at the command prompt. (the flashing thing it will look different depending on brand and os most are just a flashing line. you should take the extra step to typing fdisk and deleting the partitions and creating newones. This utility is pretty self explanitory when you are in it. I can giude you through it if you need it. You need to run the fdisk at the command prompt.
If it is newer software like XP it will come up with a option when booting frok the cd while reinstalling. Choose dlete partition and let it make a new one not just format the drive it will give you more safttey because some viruses can write them selves into the boot sector and escape a format.
Format your disk and Reinstall operating system or find out which all are the infected registry and remove the virus registry contents manually.
or delete (hidden file) autorun.inf from all drives if it exists.
