What was the command suggestion ? We are terrible at guessing.

First I tried what normally works, recover to an earlier date and remove the new update. That did not work.
I tried uninstalling google chrome as one place suggested but can reinstall because no browser will work. I then went to commands tried;
Netsh wlan show wlanreport; then
ipconfig; then netsh winsock reset, netsh int ip reset, ipconfig/release, ipconfig/renew, ipconfig/flushdns

Updated network adapter
Turned off firewalls

I haven't uninstalled anything else because I can't reinstall without Internet research capabilities. Other computer in the house is working so it has nothing to do with Internet connection.

My PC is is running Windows 10 and everytime it updates auto it knocks out my browsers.

I remember a day when you could go In the back side f12 and actually run the date back and that would work but not here

Recovery isn't working. I only used manual on one created previously for 11/1 after last Windows update but that didn't work either.

I'm at a loss this time.

Thank you for your help

Go to command prompt
In the Black Command Box Type: netsh int ip reset c:\resetlog.txt

Hit Enter Key

Restart the computer and try to log in and browse the Internet.

If the problem persists, continue using these steps.
In command prompt

In Black Command Box Type: netsh winsock reset

Hit Enter Key

Restart Computer

Good luck

You can also run this below batch file


@echo off
ipconfig /release
ipconfig /renew
ipconfig /flushdns
ipconfig /registerdns
netsh dump
nbtstat -R
netsh int ip reset reset.log
netsh winsock reset
