    Hey all,

    Yesterday I was at my bros house clearing up space on his Samsung s3510 laptop and I've removed a few programs and a Samsung related program although I can't remember what it was now. I ran malware removal software and it deleted what it found. I then installed the Kodi app to his laptop, so he could stream films etc and it didn't connect, so I removed his firewall.
    All of a sudden, the wifi internet just suddenly stopped working!
    Saying it cannot connect to the Internet. I'm still puzzled as to what I've done. The laptop says there is a connection available and when I go to click 'connect' it asks for name and password, but it still won't connect! Obviously bro and his gf are mega pissed off with me now! ha, really don't know what to do. Was working absolutely fine up until this point and I'm pretty sure I haven't removed any programs regarding the internet stuff.

    Please can somebody help me on this!

    Many thanks for taking time to read this and look forward to any replies!

    Simon

    That's what happens when you remove things that should not be removed.

    Use a restore point to a time before you cleaned off those programs.
