windows 7 . wifi problem. microsoft virtual adaptor not working.
Only had this laptop for about two months now. vaio VPCEE3E0E.
Wifi was working fine until last update (windows), now I've suddenly lost my wifi capability.
I have the following network adaptors:
Atheros AR9285 wireless network adaptor.
Microsoft virtual wifi miniport adaptor
realtek PCIe GBE family controller.
I have run the wireless troubleshooter.
I have updated all drivers. the problem seems to rest with the Microsoft virtual wifi adaptor. (Microsoft says it does not recognise it and that the license is unknown?)
I am new to windows so have no idea what to do now.
Hoping that someone out thgere can help....please?

Try removing the last Windows Update(s).
You might also try removing or disabling the troublesome adaptor from device manager and then restart the computer.DRIVE IMAGING
