      Connection keeps dropping out

      Hi,
      I have recently helped a friend remove lots of adware and spyware from their laptop computer. Since then they have had problems with their connection to the sky router dropping out. It did not happen before and was a stable connection. I have searched the internet breifly and it seems that this is a common problem that many people have, with other types of routers.
      Is there an obvious solution to this problem that I could try? Is it just a case of downloading the driver again for the wireless adapter built in to the laptop.

      Please help.

      I forgot to say that I also downloaded lots of updates from Microsoft as it had not updated for a long time. Could this have affected the connection somehow?
