Network and Sharing issue

Recently, when I noticed that the wireless manager in the system tray seemed to be stuck on 'connecting to a network', when there's a blue spinning circle next to the hollow signal bars.

Confused, since I was already surfing the internet, I tried to access the Network and Sharing Center via right clicking on the wireless manager in the system tray. I found that the window came up, but refused to respond.

Convinced that this was just a fluke of some kind, I tried again. The same thing happened, no matter how many times I restarted.

All my other programs still work correctly, and troubleshooting comes up with nothing. I have scanned my computer with G Data 2010 and Norton Internet Security 2011, with no viruses showing up.

If anyone can help, it would be greatly appreciated, since the problem is occurring on a laptop, and not being able to connect to other wireless networks is going to be a problem for me in the future.
