Firewall blocking internet connection

 Nivi -
Hello, so my problem is that my firewall seems to be blocking my internet connnection, I have the follwing message :

Security or firewall settings might be blocking the connection.

Your Internet access is blocked.

I have a perfectly fine internet connection and when I diagnose my connection problems it tells me I have a good internet connection but mentions that my firewall settings might be blocking the connection. I have spend hours stressfully trying to find out the problem but I just can't seem to find the solution would somebody a bit more experienced with computers be able to provide me with some help please it would be greatly appreciated,

If you are using Internet Explorer :
  • go to IE tools / internet Options / Advanced / perform a reset on the settings.

If this doesn't work :
  • Open Start > Settings > Update & security > Troubleshoot
  • Click Network adapters and run Troubleshooter.

If the issue was not fixed
  • press Windows + R and
  • then expand Network adapters,
  • Right click your adapter and Uninstall
  • Exit and reboot. Windows should detect the network adapter then reinstall it.

If still not working :
  • Start / Settings / Network & Internet / Status
  • Click Network reset at the bottom.
Thank you

Hardly, it could mean defaults are already loaded!
