Remove all the viruses
Since the virus problems are discussed everywhere you have to be more cautious about that. Viruses are the unwanted program components or software that are made by the human beings themselves. They have the capability of replicating themselves by attaching to the program components. They have the power to destroy all the drivers including the Ethernet drivers. That might harm the networking of your ASUS M60J by corrupting them and also create issues in installing process. So you should remove them all by means of anti-virus.
Removing the old Ethernet driver
Old drivers are needed to be removed before installing the new drivers. When the old driver is present they might cause issues in the new installation. In system, drivers for the same hardware device could produce conflicts. For removing that problem, you have to uninstall them. For that, go to the ‘Device Manager’ in the ‘Control Panel’. Under ‘Hardware devices’ you have to remove the driver for the Ethernet card.
The driver and the Ethernet card should be compatible. The programs that are written in the drivers are capable for the functioning of the Ethernet card. For that take the Properties of Ethernet card. If you couldn’t find the ‘Properties’ under the ‘Hardware’ tab, you have to open the ASUS M60J and take the cards from the sockets present in the motherboard or look the manual of your computer. After getting the details of the card you have to download the drivers from the official website of ASUS. You should also check the system’s manufacturer’s website. After downloading the file you have to double click that and install it. Reboot the system after installation.
