Windows 10: WIFI Gets Disables and requires Reboot to enable again

    WIFI Gets Disables and requires Reboot to enable again

    So. at random times my WIFI gets disabled and when I hover over the symbol it says wifi networks available. When I go into the network list it just goes into a loop that never loads the list.

    the none of the network list services can be restarted/stopped/started and in device manager I can not disable/uninstall/re-install my wifi adapter.

    The only way to re-enable my wifi is to completely restart my computer with a forced shutdown (hold the power button) because normal methods go into loops that never end.
    In the past I did fix it for an extended period of time by downloading the most recent .net Framework, this seemed to solve the problem for months until now.

    DM log is attached just encase it can help in any way.

    Hello John am a real newbie to 10 but personally I would try the really simple stuff first -
    SFC Command - Run in Windows 10 - Windows 10 Forums and this
    Drive Error Checking in Windows 10 - Windows 10 Forums as I usually do in 7 but I see it is slightly different but doing what I want.

    The other thing that springs to mind is have you updated the WLAN drivers for that board - or have you recently changed the BIOS for any reason

    This is the mobo support site but I am not that familiar with AMD cores or sockets so you might have to dig around to find what is needed as I cannot track down the socket type - although 10 should have picked up the drivers but as I said I am new to answering stuff on this forum so I stand to be corrected on anything .

    There is of course a possibilities of malware so I would be running these myself
    SUPERAntiSpyware | Remove Malware | Remove Spyware - AntiMalware, AntiSpyware, AntiAdware!
    Malwarebytes | Malwarebytes Anti-Malware Premium
    AdwCleaner Download
    delete any rubbish found with the malware scans
    (NB If one is running Kaspersky security it may rant about ADW - just ignore it or disable Kaspersky while the ADW is being used)

    I found there were network drivers I had never installed, so I'll install those and report back if this issue re-occurs within the next few days.

    Alright, it occured again.
    I updated my WLAN drivers, scanned with Mbam, checked the drives, and ran the SFC command.
    No luck, any other ideas?

    I may need to move to general support, this is more than just wifi now.

    Ok John mate I see just about that there are other connections and if yours is anything like mine I cannot have two connected at one time. Even though you have ticked auto connect it looks to me like it is waiting for you to connect because it should say "Connected" when you click on that connection option and not just what I can see as "Connect" see my pic
    I think you are right though in that there is probably a glitch of some sort in the system or the broadband server device.
