Since some time last week every time I restart Windows it forgets every WiFi network so I have to type the password with every restart  :realmad: . Whenever I try to use QSS, it fails. 

 

Any ideas on what I could do?

What changed last week when this behavior began?  Hardware or software changes?  System crash?  Malware?  Is Win7 up to date?  Are you connected to a wireless router?  Any changes to it?  What have you tried to test or fix the issue?  What were the results?

 

Cheers and Regards

I am connected, it's just that Windows doesn't save the network info so I every time I restart it appears like a new network. Windows is mostly up to date only around 10 new updates. 
 
About HD\SW changes; I replaced some OSes on my laptop with Win 7 x64. Dell's website had many different WiFi drivers for my laptop model so I just got the one that seemed to be correct (It was a WiFI and BT bundle). The installation only installed the BT driver which would mean that the WiFi driver was incompatible. So I believe that this may be the problem although why a driver is causing a problem in a different OS is something mysterious. 
 
EDIT: Reinstalled the correct driver and the same thing is still happening.
