It turned out that the Virtual WiFi adaptor wasn't set to "automatic".  This seems to have fixed the problem.  Thanks!

I spoke too soon.  The problem is back.

 

I checked to be sure "automatic" is still checked and it is.

 

I haven't installed anything new.  I rebooted and it still can't find a network.  According to the "properties" under "Virtual WiFi Filter Driver" the driver is working correctly and is started.

 

Any idea why this sometimes works and sometimes doesn't?
