Received a 'NT authority' warning on netbook, since then the 'Connect to' button has dissapeared from start menu.
When going into network connections the screen is blank showing no connections at all.

    To check which all drivers are missing from your system, you would need to open the device manager.

    Here are steps to open device manager:

    For Windows Xp:

    1) Click Start
    2) Select Run
    3) Type Devmgmt.msc and press Enter Key

    For Windows Vista:

    1) Click Start / Peral button
    2) Type Devmgmt.msc and press Enter Key

    Let me know if you see any yellow exclamation marks in the list.
    Please provide me with complete details of those with yellow exclamation marks.
    These are the drivers which need to be reinstalled.

    Even if there aren't any, please inform me.

    I will assist you and make sure that you have some solution to this issue.

You might have some viruses and malware.

Start your PC and press F8 several times until the boot menu comes up. Then select "Safe Mode with Networking". Now get some or ALL of the FREE programs below.

Download, Install and Run Malwarebytes Anti-Malware:
When Installing choose the non-pro version.

Download, Unzip, Install and Run TDSSKiller:

Download, Install and Run Super Anti-Spyware:

If you have an outdated Anti-virus program then Download, Install and Run Avira Anti-Virus:
Make sure to select ALL of the "threat categories" when you install or configure Avira...

You should be in pretty good shape if you run and install all of these programs.

My connection button on my acer aspire one netbook has disappeared and i can no longer get the internet on it! Help pleasee! I dont know whether ive selected the exct model! But yeahhh. HELP!

Sounds like you or someone else may have disabled your Network connections, so this is probably an easy fix.
Click on the start menu, then My Computer, then Network Connections and then View Network Connections.
Right click on the one you want to use and it will have Enable on the drop down menu, and that could do it
