I need help!!!

by tokyoo / October 12, 2017 7:42 AM PDT

HI, my computer has been acting weird and hasn´t been working correctly.
For example, i cant open some exe programs such as installer files etc.
i tried to troubleshoot but i get the error 0x80070002.
I went into the device manager to check so that everything was working like it should, i noticed that there was a warning sign by one of the network adapters, the Intel Centrino advanced-N 6205.
it said that windows couldn´t verify the digital signature for the drivers required for this device.
So I tried to install new drivers, but i cant open exe files! what do i do?
And sometimes when i´m on chrome it says that i´m not connected to the internet for a few seconds, i assume that it is the network adapter that i cant fix :((((
Pls help!!!!!

- https://www.google.com/search?q=0x80070002 shows that there are several programs that can give this error. What (troubleshooting) program gives it with you?
- If you can't open exe files, how can you be on chrome? That's an exe!
- Not all driver install programs are exe files. Did you check of yours is? And what is the exact error message when you try to install the drivers.

Drivers are from the maker.

Your post omitted make and model so members can only give you vague replies. Tell more, get more.

A literal quote from your post: " i cant open exe files! what do i do?"

If it only are "some" you have to be specific. What's the common factor about the ones you can't open? Also give examples. And, of course, the error message when you try to open them. Which program are you able to open?

There's no make, model or much detail here.

So the .exe issue points to OS damage. You may know if your machine was hit with trojans, malware and such but read https://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/617640/windows-10-issues-cannot-run-exe-files/

If you can open a browser to get here, your machine can run .exe files. You must mean something else is going on.

As to the drivers, only use the ones for your machine from the maker unless you are trying last gasp ideas to get around and see if that will help a failing machine.

A couple of thoughts

I wonder where you got those drivers. Some .exe files for drivers are just self-extracting zips. If you got these from one of those driver finder sites, I'd not even try to use it. Here's one place to try if the maker of your PC doesn't show them as available. I've had good luck with Intel support for their hardware.

Intel® Centrino® Advanced-N 6205, Dual Band
Good luck.

Change the file endings to *.zip and see if it will open then as a zip file.
