Re: How to setup a Network Connection using Network and Sharing Center in Windows 7

Hi,

Thanks for sharing useful information to setup windows 7 network but i want to share some more information.

Before starting with any procedures related to setting up network on Windows 7, users are advised to thoroughly scan the system for malwares. The scanning must be done with the help of an updated antivirus program or malware removal tool. If malwares such as spyware are present, then they would send out information from the system to the malware source as soon as the system is connected to the network.

Get more help to setup windows 7 network. Hope this helps you.
