I accidently found I had a kill switch on the front of my laptop, while moving it, I went into the kill LAN mode and came up multiple error messaqes. At work I tried to just boot it up, see if anything changed and found the kill switch, the LAN ON bubble changed, but when I got home, booted the computer, the LAN ON did come up (it read disabled) but stop 3 or so tricky message boxes I never saw before - so I sit here on my desktop, totally aggrivated. Hope someone can point me in the right direction. Here are the error messages.
Also, I have notice for 3 days prior that I'd get the check your virus protection, and 2 out of three times McAfee said I wasn't fully protected but when I hit the protect me, it turned to an okay green light and seemed fine. Here are the fault messages.

* Host process for Windows Services was Closed
* To help protect your computer DATA EXECUTION PREVENTION has closed HOST PROCESS for Windows Services.
I know, a mess of messages. Anyone know why simple shutting of the LAN/WAN shut-off button on the Laptop would do all this? And especially how to recover normal operations?
Just FWI - after the button at work, coming home trying it - all the same messages occured except it showed that it was picking up the router signal - it showed on. How could locking down Internet connect do all this crap, that button is there (a slide switch actually) I never noticed it and accidently slide it to LAN off as I moved it - ugh.
Any help, thanks.
