Default USB Malfunction???

Please help!

Today I downloaded the latest version of Internet Explorer and shortly thereafter I received a message "USB Malfunction...Device not recognized" I was not sure what "device" the message was referring to.

After that, I noticed my LINKSYS Wireless Icon was missing not allowing me to log on to the internet. There are two other PC's on our wireless network which are working fine.


How do I fix this and get my LINKSYS Wireless Icon back???


Thanks,


Cheri

Hi,

I am using WINDOWS XP...I think my USB Wifi Adapter (dongle) died and am searching for another to test.

Thanks so much for your help!
