Default Unable to connect to ANY unsecured wireless networks

I am having a problem connecting to any unsecured network. When I try to connect at public places, like Starbucks or Krystal's, I am able to connect to their network, but it always says there is a problem with wireless adapter or access point. At first I thought there might have been a problem with the network, but then when I changed locations and was still unable to connect, i decided that the problem was with my computer. I have a HP Pavilion DV7 and am running windows 7 and using Foxfire as my browser. I am very un-savvy when it comes to issues with hardware, but I can churn out a spreadsheet in no time. I was given the advise to turn off my firewall, which i did, however it did not fix my problem. I also did a system restore to a point where i was able to connect to unsecured networks, and it did not fix it either. Please help!
