    WAHOOOOO!! Back in the game, the nuclear option worked like a charm! Thanks everyone for your input.

    As an aside, reinstalling Windows 7 is soooo easy, I had no idea it could be that simple.

    Start > Control Panel > search for Recovery > Advanced recovery methods
    Then click on Return Windows to original settings > Reinstall Windows.

    It'll prompt to backup your files though I backed mine up on an external hard drive as an extra precaution. Took a couple of hours and all is well.

    P.S. I'm still going to drink that whisky

    I've managed to fix this by setting the WLAN autoconfig service to auto. For some reason mine was disabled. Once I did that then windows installed the mini port adapter and WIFI was working. I hardly use wifi so I am not sure what caused the WLAN service to get disabled or even when. My theory is that the driver package disables Windows WLAN autoconfig so you are able to use the manufacture's program. I am running a 2 month old install of Windows 7 64bit home. with an Intel 6150 wifi/wimax card. I get so much help from these forums (and the internet in general) that I decided to finally make a contribution. I hope this save someone from going nuclear! Thanks for all your help!
