    Re: Windows Update - 13906 (For BrianDrab)

    That's what I was afraid of. Please do the following so I can get detail info on the system.

    Step#1 - Retrieve System Information
    1. Download Speccy to your desktop. The setup file will be named spsetup128.exe or something similar.
    2. Double-click on this file and install it. Note: Please ensure that you uncheck any foistwarethat may be presented during the install (i.e. Chrome Browser install).
    3. When the program opens it will retrieve some information regarding your system.
    4. Once it's done, select the File menu and choose Save snapshot and save to your desktop.
    5. Right-click on this file that you saved (should be named something like ABHISHEK-PC.speccy) and select Send to..compressed (zipped) folder.
    6. The resultant name should be something like ABHISHEK-PC.zip. Please attach this file to your next post.

    Re: Windows Update - 13906 (For BrianDrab)

    There's nothing in the zip file that you provided except a shortcut to the program.

    Please try again.

    Also, down by the time of your computer you should have a wireless network icon. It will either look like this Windows Update - 13906 (For BrianDrab)-wirelessenable-jpg or maybe like this Windows Update - 13906 (For BrianDrab)-wirelessdisable-jpg. On your keyboard if you hit the Fn + F2 keys it should toggle your wireless connection from being enabled to disabled and vice-versa.

    In front of your touchpad you should have some status indicators...one of them which is the wireless indicator. Windows Update - 13906 (For BrianDrab)-wirelessicon-jpgAs you hit Fn + F2 on the keyboard do you see the light on this indicator turn on and off?

    Got the info, thanks.

    Makes sense if your network cable is plugged in. Unplug the network cable for a moment and then hold down the Function key on your keyboard (Fn) located at the bottom left of the keyboard. While holding this function key down, hit the F2 key at the top of your keyboard. Pay attention to the indicator lights beneath the touchpad of your laptop as shown below. Each time you hit F2 (while holding the Fn key down) does the light beneath the wireless icon turn on and off?

    OK. Make sure you hit Fn + F2 and when the light is on, leave it that way.

    Also make sure the network cable is unplugged.

    At this point, do you see a wireless icon down by the time on your computer?

    Got it. Device Manager was where we needed to go next. Nice job. In Device Manager, right-click on the Intel Centrino Wireless-N 6150 that has the caution icon on it and select Uninstall. Reboot once prompted. Even if you are not prompted to reboot please do.

    Next, from your working machine, download the drivers from here and save them to your USB drive and transfer to the good machine.

    Extract the zip file and open the contents of the folder. You will see a Drivers folder and an Install folder. Open the drivers folder and double-click on dpinst64.exe and allow to install. Reboot if prompted.

    If successful, check in Device Manager to see that it is now showing without a caution icon.

    Let me know. Thanks.

    Brian, you are awesome. I have wireless connection and my Windows Security Essentials is updating as I write.
    I am attaching a shot of what the drivers look like just now
    Windows Update - 13906 (For BrianDrab)-fullsizerender-3-jpg

    However, what I notice is missing is AR8151 driver which was there when my problem started. I am attaching another shot showing you the drivers when my problem first started.

    Great News! Your LAN driver is missing as well according to your screen shot. That's why when we plug in the network cable it doesn't work. Please do the following.

    1. Now that you have wireless you should be able to download this file directly to your computer.
    2. Right-click on the file and extract the info.
    3. You should see a PNPINST64.exe file.
    4. Try double-clicking on this to install
    5. If successful, check out Device Manager to see if all looks well.

    Re: Windows Update - 13906 (For BrianDrab)

    OK, let's clean up our tools now.

    1. Clean Up!
    We need to remove all the tools that we used so that should you ever be re-infected, you will download updated versions which may have updated detection logic.
    1. Download Delfix from here.
    2. Ensure everything is checked.
    3. Click Run.
    Note: The program will run for a few moments and then notepad will open with a log. Please paste the log in your next reply.
    Note: Delete any other .bat, .log, .reg, .txt, and any other files created during this process, and left on the desktop and empty the Recycle Bin.
