Has grimefighter disabled my wireless adapter?
« on: March 21, 2015, 07:22:41 AM »
While running grimefighter, it stopped working and told me to reconnect via a LAN cable. I did this and it continued it's cleanup. But now I can't get the wireless adapter to turn on. This is on an Acer laptop with built in wireless adapter.

Reinstalling the drivers for the wifi should fix it.
Or you can run GrimeFighter again and tell it to undo the changes it has made.

Snip> Reinstalling the drivers for the wifi should fix it.

If that's true, then my question would be, why would GrimeFighter be messing with/uninstalling WiFI drivers.
I mean what does that have to do with "Grime"?? ???
