Hi, it would be of a lot of help if you can tell us both what virus was involved and how it was removed.
Although you may think it has gone, there may still be traces lurking, plus while on the system may well have done some damage to the operating system.

We do need to know much more, it would also be of help for finding the correct drivers if some are missing now, if you can tell us the make and model of the laptop.

If you tell us which virus you "Removed" maybe we can help you remove it properly. Maybe your wireless drivers was corrupted by the virus, have you tried re-installing them?
