No internet after large windows update

Q: No internet after large windows update

Hi everyone,

Im new here and just stumbled on this site, and Im glad I did.

I had a virus, and am pretty sure it is gone. I have done alot of scanning with malwarebytes, nod32, etc. all in safe mode. And I think it is all gone.

Anyways I did a PC recovery (F10 while pc is starting up) and when I do this of course it wipes out all the windows updates that have been loaded up over the years. So there are 99 updates to reload up. When I load them all up at once I have no internet access and I get messages that pop up on restart as in blah blah blah C:/windows/ could not be loaded. Also C:/ programfiles/disc/discover.exe cant be loaded either. Before I load all the updates, the pc works fine.

Any solutions out there? Am I just loading too many updates at once on the pc?

My pc is compaq with amd athalon 64 processor 3500+ 991 MHz with 2GB RAM

Thanks in advance for the help

A: No internet after large windows update

Try System Restore to a point prior to all the updates.

Running SP3 standalone will decrease the number of updates you will need.

This morning, Aug 21 sunday, windows 10 did a very large update.  Now after my laptop has been on for 20 minutes, or so......the screen just goes blank (or very dark blue).  Nothing brings it back.  I have to do a hard shutdown....hold in the power button until it goes off, and then start it back up. Was there something in this update that has caused the problem??  It ran fine before the update. thanks......Pete

Following some updates to Win 8.1, I am encountering problems with MS Access displaying GIF files on reports on some machines (nominally at the same update state). By moving the Access database to a machine that is not currently showing the problem, I have been able to prove that it is not the Access db causing the problem - something I previously suspected as machines with Windows Update turned off or those that have been moved back to 8.0 (plus those running earlier versions of Windows) display the GIF files correctly in Access.

The error message we are getting is;-
?2114 <program name> doesn?t support the format of the file ?d:\PF_Sign\M11_V2846.gif,? or the file is too large. Try converting the file to BMP or GIF format.?
where M11_V2846.gif is a variable file name which links to the Image frame on the current report page. All the files are very small (normally not more than 5kb) and are already in a gif format (they are an image version of an INK signature created using a standard utility on tablet machines).

If the GIF file is viewed outside of MS Access, it is displayed without a problem.

The problem is:-

I am not sure if this thread should be here in Op/Sys or in where browser problems are found ...

I am running WinXP SP3 on a IBM T40. The browser is FireFox 20.0.1 IE8 is installed but never used. I have recently noticed that I am running out of disk space on C:\ (opsys and programs only on that drive). When I poked around to see what was happening, I noticed that there was 4GB of content in Internet Temp Files in an "IE5" folder. This was surprising because all browsers are set to delete everything (history, cache, ...) on exit. I deleted them all (using CleanUp!). I checked space on C:\ and it was back to where it should be. Several days later the same problem -- 4GB+ of content in the same area.

I run AVG security s/w and manually run Malware Bytes and SpyBot once a week. There is no indication of any malware. The only recent change/install is an update to Firefox 20.x

Any thoughts on what might be going on?

Hello Everyone,
I have a problem recently that's been driving me absolutely nuts.
Whenever I try to download a large file, be it through a video game patcher or utorrent, my computer's internet connection goes down completely shortly after the download starts. When I say down, I mean I get the yellow exclamation point in the bottom right. When I troubleshoot my connection, windows gives me the following error, "Problems found - Windows can't communicate with the device or resource (primary DNS server)". It's very difficult to restore internet when this happens, usually requiring me to use System Restore to an earlier save point. When I do this, the problem still remains if I try and download again.
I should mention my ISP says everything is good on their end, and my modem looks as if everything's fine. Also, I'm able to normally browse the internet, listen to Pandora, and watch Hulu It's only when I try to download a large file that this happens.

So I have about a dozen files that I want to send to a friend in another state. Ranging from about 100 MB to 5 GB. The total of all the files together is roughly 26 GB. One Drive won't let me upload anything over 4 GB. Plus it takes forever.

In IE, font is so large that a normal webpage no longer fits on the entire screen--you have to scroll left and right to view the whole page.

Try View--> Zoom --> select 100% (150% or more may already be selected)

If it is actually the font size, have you tried:

Others than 12 consecutive emails I guess one of the common File-hosters is your next best choice.
Why not burn that stuff onto a double layer DVD and send it via snail mail ?

Or install Drop Box for both of you (Drop Box free allows for up to 2 GB IIRC)

Either way you will have to split the File.
via an archive program like 7zip or WinRar

Or via file splitters like HJSplit

HJSplit - Download

Or your friend sets up a FTP server and creates an account with login for you and you download directly (best with an application that supports resume

I've recently switched from Verizon 2 Mbps to Time Warner 15 Mbps (both were wireless), and installed a new router that I bought off the tech guy while he was there. After setting up the router with Warner and hooking it up, I noticed a strange problem with this new internet connection:

Whenever I'd download a large file, say larger than a few MB, my internet would lock up and crash - forcing me to disconnect from and then reconnect to the wireless signal to resolve the problem. This happens either during large file downloads, or heavy traffic moments such as loading multiple webpages at once. So, whenever my internet connection dies on me, a quick windows diagnostic says that the DNS cannot be contacted because there is no ethernet connection. What's more, though, is that this apparently only happens with my wireless connection, because the downstairs computer which is hooked up to the router with an ethernet cable never experiences this problem.

This has me genuinely confused here. Is my computer simply forgetting for a split second that it uses wireless and just defaults to looking for a LAN connection? Or is this a problem with the router, or the service provider itself - Time Warner - since I never had this problem with Verizon.

A:Internet cuts out whenever downloading large files

from Verizon 2 Mbps to Time Warner 15 Mbps (both were wireless)Click to expand...

Please educate me on this. Verizon has both DSL and mobile wireless, and 2 Mbps sounds reasonable for either. But I thought that Time Warner was only (coax) cable? And 15 Mbps download sounds to me like a cable service, not mobile wireless and not fixed wireless.

What networking equipment (brand and model) do you have? You mentioned a "modem" and a "router." Anything else?

Hi, I recently had to upgrade my harddrives when I kept getting a "No load past start screen" error. I pinpointed the area to one of the harddrives and replaced it accordingly. After doing a fresh install of the OS and everything, I noticed my computer was a little sluggish and the internet was slow. Having being a little.. idiotic about reprogramming computers, I asked a friend who works on computers to fix it. He did the same thing that I did, but reinstalled the drivers differently and the internet worked perfectly after that.

After getting the computer back, I started installing my games and noticed the internet kept disconnecting on my laptop alone (While the rest of the house has internet) and that it would usually spike at a certain point then drop to a 0kbs download and the internet icon would show the "Internet has disconnected" icon. Thinking it was just a minor setback I didn't think anything of it, well its been a month now and it is still disconnecting.

I have tried updating the drivers, but to no avail as they're all up to date (Or so it seems) and ran virus scans/reg cleaners. If anyone has any tips please help!

This is my first time on your forums. I have tried everything, but my DIY has reached its wit's end. I am running a Windows XP (using Mozilla Firefox as my browers) system with a wireless DSL connection. I have been plagued by issues and I am left unable connect to the internet while still had an IP address . . . When I logged into Windows, I got a dialog box warning that mmwnd.exe was unable to load. I searched online for solutions and was lead to the spyware removal software PREVX 1.

I installed this and it found several infections, which it was able to isolate and remove. However, I was still unable to connect. Occasionally PREVX would trip on a piece of malware it called TOTOUR.EXE, upon finding this and isolating it (although it never showed in up as isolated) I was able to connect to the internet. However, when PREVX was unable to locate it on a restart I still had no connection.

So I again searched online, and saw that i should remove TOTOUR.EXE with killbox. This didn't work, apparently.

Further searching lead me to another virus checker called Superantispyware Pro. I installed this and ran it. It found, around 200 of pieces of malware/tracking cookies on my machine that it removed without incident. (To be extra sure, I ran it in safe mode too. It found a couple of hundred more(!). I scanned another time, and I actually think that it's finding the same pieces of malware but unable to remove them.

Okay, so i've looked all over the internet for some one with the same problem and found one or two threads with similar issues but none had any replies.

Issue: While playing games on my laptop (Like World of Warcraft and other such MMOs) my computer will stop receiving wireless signals. This happens usually about an hour or so of playing said game. The only way to get my laptop to get wireless internet again is to restart the laptop. I have this problem at multiple houses so i know its not the wireless routers. The only way i found on my own to ignore the issue is to use a ether net cord and connect to the router that way, but with the new internet company we have i can no longer do so because we had to move the router. Since spending money is more or less impossible i was hoping some one might have had a similar problem and resolved it.

I was thinking it may be a temperature issue since it usually happens when my laptop starts to get warm and the computer fan inside kicks on.

I use a: Compaq Presario c700 Notebook.
Windows Vista Home Premium (32bit)
broadcom 802.11b/g WLAN (Wireless device i think)

I'm no computer genius so if you need more info about my computer or something let me know. This has been a real problem for me and i really hope to have it resolved.

Hi Flyheight1,

Welcome to Vista Forums!

Please follow the instructions in Network Posting Tips and see if that helps (specifically step three) and, if not, perhaps the IPCONFIG will provide some clues.

Please download Speccy Speccy - System Information - Free Download and then post the exact detailed information about your wireless card - you probably gave the right information but this may provide additional data so I can find the EXACT card. I'd like to check its specifications and limitations.

As far as temperature goes, here are some options to check that (and in some cases, quite a few more things) to see if you are running so hot even the fan cannot compensate for it.

when I download large files (>a few GB) without throttling my download speed to about 300kB/s my internet connection dies for a few minutes. At regular downloadspeed (~1.6 MB/s) it dies at around 500MB, at slower speeds it seems to get a bit further before halting. (600kB/s gets me to around 750MB, 300kB/s finished the last download successfully, file was ~3GB)

I remain connected to the router (packets received/sent still going strong) but I can't access the internet and if I use the windows troubleshooter it tells me IP configuration was invalid or default gateway unavailable.

I googled the problem and the only tips I found were "throttle your download speed" (works, but that's not a good solution) and "disable 'allow other network users to disable connection'" which did nothing.

I get the same problem on my laptop, but when the internet on my PC is crashed I can still access the web from my laptop and vice versa.

Thanks in advance for you help!

A:Internet dies for a few minutes when downloading large files quickly

My bet goes to router

Is your modem and router separate devices? Would your connection work if you plug the modem to computer directly?

I guess some routers have a passthrough configuration, if above is not feasible.

If all above fail try factory reset on the router. Make sure you have all the configuration details noted down, you will need them after the reset.

First post here on the SevenForums! I'm only saving the tough ones for you guys! Here's the problem:

My client's computer was infected with a virus obtained via Facebook. I removed this and multiple other infections (and I'm pretty thorough with my scanning). She gets it back, starts working on it, and apparently her devices and printers icons are blank. Not missing, like with a "blank page" icon, just... blank. Here's the kicker: it only happens with large and extra large icons. It also happens with normal folder icons. When I change it to medium or lower, they come back. I've tried rebuilding the icon cache database several times, tried sfc /scannow, tried chkdsk, tried uninstalling any recent updates, etc... There have been no hardware changes, the hard drive has been tested as good (no bad sectors), her dual monitors are at a sane resolution, and I'm confident that the viruses has been removed. Trust me -- I've tried all the obvious stuff I can think of. Thanks and Good luck!

Edit: Also, I did about 30 minutes of searching through previous threads. Couldn't find a thing, but I could have missed it...

Well you probably pulled some icon cache files off that were infected but also had the L and XL icons. If sfc didnt work you could try a repair install. It will re-install only the files with different hash marks.

I can't install, uninstall or update Internet Explorer.

Errors from windows update:
Code 9C48
Code 9C57

I've been trying literally for 3 days straight from the time I get up to the time I go to sleep to try to fix this. I don't usually post on forums about this type of thing but I really need to fix this. Internet Explorer is of course, pre-installed on my OS.

A new job (I'm a freelancer) requires me to use Internet Explorer to activate a program (Autodesk 3dsmax) -- the activation screen doesn't show up!!

In any case, thats another problem all together but to fix that I need to fix Internet Explorer, and to fix Internet Explorer I need to fix the Windows Updater & to fix that.. I do what? I've tried every single thing possible.

So I'm probably going to need a more customized solution. I'm not sure what could fix my specific problem.

Extremely sorry to have to ask for help & thank you in advance. Even if it can't be fixed I'm extremely grateful for any help or advice that can be given.

Its important I find a way to fix this fast since I'm so behind on work now, so even if theres a regular user that has any good information - anything thats fairly well hidden, tips, tricks anything -- I'd be really happy to hear it.

Hi. I am just asking this question because I need the information. I just want to know about it. I was just wondering, how would a person go about getting windows updates installed on their computer if they did not have Internet access or if they did not want to run the Windows Update utility on Microsoft's website for privacy or other reasons? Can you order a Windows Update CD or is it possible for someone who has Internet Acess to download the updates and burn them to a CD-RW for the person to install on their computer? Any help you can provide will be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

You can download the SP1 installer in ISO form from here...

Other updates are more problematic, as there are no roll-ups available that I know of.
Your best option is simply to get the machine connected, and update it - then go back to being unconnected. You don't often need updates anyhow, if the machine is not connected to anything else.

I've been having a problem with a windows 7 home premium update. I have no virus's or spyware my computer runs find, but when I click update it will say 9 updates so I click update. Then when it updates they all update perfectly accept for one and it's an update for Internet Explorer 9 I have a Dell 1750 Inspiron AVG Antivirus and Firewall all included, Malewarebytes, Spybot Search & Destroy, So when I do these updates it restarts to finish them up then all of a sudden I can not connect to the internet no more, It says no signal witch there is a full bar and everything I tried clicking connect but it says limited access, So I fool around trying to fix it but it wont let me do nothing I know updates are very important for laptops but it's just wont let me online, But it would work really well before the updates is there anyway to get pass that and fix it I usually just do system restore at an earlier time before the updates cause I can never get back on the internet connected, And there is nothing wrong with the router but I know some of these updates are important thanks if anyone knows what's up.... Or how I can do the updates and fix the internet connection problem.

A:Windows 7 after update no internet.

Sometimes security programs can interfere with Windows updates. Suggest you exit the security programs
and try the updates again.

Spybot S&D does not enjoy the reputation of being one of the best security program. If MBAM is the
paid for version and not the free version, suggest you uninstall Spybot after shutting it down completely.
Or remove Spybot and install WinPatrol Free as it has some of the same features to guard your computer using
less resources.

You can install updates individually or only a select few. If you are sure the IE 9 update is causing the problem,
you can choose to install the others, reboot to verify it is the IE9 update causing the problem.

After doing the above and you are sure it is the IE9 update causing the problem, then a reinstall of IE 9
would be my next suggestion.

On December 27 I noticed my computer had updates ready to install, so I installed them and rebooted. After reboot, the desktop disappeared and Windows explorer would not run. I fixed this and did another reboot, and realized I could not connect to the internet. Troubleshooting from the wireless connections gives the following problem: "Windows could not automatically detect this networks proxy settings"

I tried a system restore but that didn't help. I looked under the device manager and examine the network adapters and uninstalled all the ones that had errors (they were something like INSATAP and Teredo and Microsoft 6to4 adapter) I was told they would reinstall after reboot but they didn't. One of them (WAN Miniport IKEv2) would nog uninstall and still has an error.

The status of IPv4 and IPv6 is "Not Connected" but the wireless connection says it is enabled, even though it won't connect to the internet.

I also tried the Winsock breach reset thing in the cmd but that did nothing either.

here is my ipconfig /all:

Ive been using this one windows update site for a while and noticed more and more people having trouble with updateing Windows through IE (internet explorer). So i decided to throw it out there on how to update windows without IE ...particlarly "This free website allows users of Mozilla Firefox 0.9.3, Netscape 4.0, Mozilla Firebird 0.7, Opera 5, or K-Meleon 0.9 to keep their copy of Windows up-to-date. Newer releases of these browsers are also suitable."

YOU CANT USE IE TO UPDATE THROUGH THIS SITE!!! Download and install Mozilla firefox 1.5 or the latest final version...right now its 1.5. Or one of the above browsers, firefox is probably the more suitable and user friendly.

First go to the site and check it out...READ about it first b4 deciding to use it as your main windows update provides a good ammount of info on the site.

This site in my opinion is great. One downside is that its a bit slower in adding new updates to its database...usually about a month behind...but for most thats not an issue unless your a total security freak about every little thing microsft views as a about it at the website. It also does not have a driver database, yet. So you will still want to pop on the official microsoft windows update site from time to time to see if there are any newer drivers for your system if need be.

I have a small 2GB Toshiba notebook that I bought used about a year ago and has never given me any problems until last week when Windows performed one of its automatic updates. After the computer restarted itself, everything was completely normal except one thing: the system fails to detect any network! All our other computers are running on this network just fine, and I am using another laptop right now with no problem.
Just to be clear, the bars on the bottom that indicate connection to a network are crossed out in red. When I mouse over it it says Not connected - No connections are available.
Troubleshooting detected this:
"Windows could not automatically detect this network's proxy settings."
In more detail it said this:
"Failed to connect to a windows service.
Windows could not connect tothe System Event Notification Service service. This problem prevents standard users from logging on to the system. As an administrative user, you can review the System Event Log for details about why the service didn't respond."
I do not know where such a log would be found.
Also, System Restore, my secred weapon, did not work either.
Does anyone have a suggestion?

I hope someone can help me. I recently purchased a U.S. Robotics Wireless USB Adapter. The software CD told me I needed Windows XP Security Pack 1. I tried to download the SP1 but the download failed and I got "Error Code: 80070643" (w/out the quotes.) When I later tried the download again, the program wouldn't install. When I tried to download SP2, I got "Error Code: 8007F0CB". For some reason, SP3 downloads and installs.

Can anyone help? Thanks.

What are you downloading?? There is NO sp3 for WindowsXP!! It would help if you posted the complete error message, someone may be able to help identify the problem. Also... right-click on 'MyComputer' and on the 'General' tab it will list which version of XP you are using.

Three things.

Got Windows 10 on my tablet and I've got no idea how to see if I'm connected to the internet (short of trying a browser).
Windows 7 had the wi-fi or internet icon in the bottom right hand corner but I've nothing and can't find any way of getting it.

Secondly, how do I update Windows? I Googled some things but I can't find a single option that lets me do anything such as downloading updates or even updating drivers.

Thirdly, my network card keeps saying disabled. I enable it, a box appears saying "enabling" yet the box next to the Bluetooth box stays grey and say "disabled". I can possibly access the internet but then it cuts me off saying "no connection".

A:How do I know if I'm connected to the internet / windows update

Welcome to the forum

? Right click on an empty space in the Taskbar
? Settings
? Scroll down to Notification Area
? Click on Select which icons appear on the taskbar
? Change Network to On
? Click on the Wifi icon in right of Taskbar
? You will see a list of available networks and the one you are connected to, a pointer hover will also show this..
Also there is turn Wifi and Airplane mode On or Off
Click on Network settings for various options

? Settings
? Update & security
? Click on Check for updates
Also, there are various links to update options on that page

Sorry, I don't know anything about network cards etc. Someone else will probably be able to help with this but I think they will need more information, at least the make and model of your tablet computer

On a more serious note, as the title says, I would appreciate any sort of help as I am really clueless on what to do now I have to resort using my phone to do work as I have no internet access.

Stuff ive done is power management to max performance, installed lastest 8.1 drivers from Lenovo and intel site, uninstall driver in safe mode etc...

You didn't even mention if this was a wired or wireless connection?

Have you tried going to the Windows Update Center using a wired connection for the latest updates.

The Lenovo site shows wireless drivers which came out yesterday, they may make changes to them if they aren't working so check the driver version. Other than that this particular model of Lenovo is famous for having problems which I'm sure you are aware of, no magic fix that I know of.

I'm running Windows XP SP2 and overnight auto updates installed KB890830, a Malicious Software Removal Tool update. When I sat down at my system I discovered I had no Internet or Email.

I could see the other two computers on my network and both had Internet service. One system is running Vista and the other is running XP SP2 but hadn't installed KB890830 yet.

Everything checked out on my system so I did a system restore to just prior to the update being installed and my Interrnet service returned.

Has anyone else reported this update causing a loss of Internet service and is there a fix or workaround other than just dumping the update altogether?

Hoping you experts can help me out. Recently I have been experiencing problems with my internet/IE. After a while if I have a high number of tabs open (6) it wont allow me to open anymore, the next one I open just has the same address in the bar as the last one and does nothing. Then when this happens outlook express no longer downloads from the mail servers. Now the tabs that I already had open work and can load any sites. But to get outlook working again I have to disconnect my internet restart my adsl and logon again. But the IE tabs still wont open up more than a few.

I have run: Spybot S&D, AdAware, Spyware Blaster, CCCleaner. Also have AVG installed.

Now all of a sudden when this happened earlier it came up with a crash error: DrWatson Postmortem Debugger. Not got a clue what this is and if this is causing the problems.

I have tried running windows updates but get the error: 0x80072EE7 and have tried all solutions on the net about the hosts file etc. Also I have only just noticed other websites will not load on my computer: for example.

Any help to any of my problems is appreciaited. Many Thanks.

My laptops IE7 and Firefox stopped working, I rebuilt the laptop and installed SP3 and browsers worked again, after applying windows updates the browser is unable to connect to websites and times out with connection problem.
I also tried updating to IE8, but the same thing happened. If I rollback with system restore everything works again. all of the updates starting 94xx are ok.

I am unable to identify which update is doing this has anyone else experienced this ?

I think it must have been one of the latest patches this week that broke it. Any help withthis is appreciated.

A:Internet explorer not working after windows update

I had similar problem but finally figured it out.

My issue was with Windows Zero Configuration Service after install of SP3. Just had to restart the service manually from control panel and BOOM, internet works. This particular problem happens mostly on wireless network adapters (mine is a d-link DWA-110 adapter).

Other services you should restart = DHCP! This was the root cause of the problem due to a conflict with Zero Configuration i think. Freakin MS, can't even get their own modules working properly together

When visiting a Web page that uses a custom pop-up object, Microsoft Internet Explorer 6 can close unexpectedly and generate an error in the Mshtml.dll file. This problem occurs after you install security update 918899 on a Windows XP Service Pack 2 (SP2)-based or a Windows Server 2003 Service Pack 1 (SP1)-based hotfix is available if you are severely affected by this problem. Otherwise, we recommend that you wait for the next cumulative security update for Internet Explorer.

Last night i was playing an online game when my computer unexpectedly shut down for Windows Updates. I didnt think much of it and restarted it and continued playing, but after about 5 minutes i started to receive very bad lag on my end, and i simply decided to shut down my computer and just worry about it tomorrow. Today i started my computer up and it refuses to connect to the internet. It finds the network and router but will not allow me to connect to the internet. I am currently on a laptop that is connected to the same network(wirelessly) and my desktop is hardwired to my router. I'm not sure what is causing this issue, and would greatly appreciate any help people could offer.

I'm not sure if this issue has anything to do with the Windows Update or not but i cant seem to figure it out on my own.

A:Internet connection issues after Windows Update

First guess without any specific experience with your computer is that your av or firewall software is freaking out.
Usually uninstall/reinstall will solve if that is the case.

It's also possible some core system files were damaged when windows was updating.
That's also easy to check though.
SFC /SCANNOW Command - System File Checker
^just follow those instructions for that one.
As always with connection issues.
Turn off the computer.
Unplug modem (remove battery if it has one)
Unplug router.
Do something else that takes about five minutes.
Plug in the modem wait until it fully connects and cycles
Plug in the router give it time to also fully set up.
Reboot the computer.

That specific order is the best way to get any junk settings cleared from all the connection related devices.

My PC is currently running Windows 2000 (yes, it's ghetto, but it's been stable for me). Not too long ago, someone suggested to me to update it to SP4. Since then, I have not done any further updates.

Yesterday evening, for some reason, I decided to see what kind of stuff I needed to update. I did the whole Windows Update thing from the windows menu. I found that I had 77 updates for Windows 2000. I d/led and installed them all and restarted the computer. Now, my Internet and Firefox don't seem to work properly. What I mean is that I'm getting "The page cannot be displayed" page on IE or "Address Not Found" page on Firefox when I try to load websites, such as Facebook or Yahoo, etc.. Only when I hit refresh button about half a dozen times, will I actually get to the website. This has also affected my booting of MSN, as I would get some error msg with that too.

I've restarted the computer couple times already with no improvement. I've checked my Internet connection already as well. There are no problems with that whatsoever (b/c my brother's computer on the same connection is working properly). Someone suggested to me on the Windows 2000 forum to use the "PageCannotBeDisplayed" program, but I'm hesitant to use some external program, as some reviews say it's not helpful.

EVERY single (unsolicited) Windows 10 Home update procedure knocks out my internet access so I can't access internet after a Windows Update.

Found several solutions here at 10 Forums some time back. The solution that works for me (on laptop or desktop, ethernet or wifi) is this:

Go to Control Panel
> Network & Internet
> Network and Sharing Center
> click the Connections: option (either 'Ethernet' or 'Wifi') depending on whether wired or wifi
> click 'Properties'
> click once on 'Internet Protocol Version 4 (TCP/IPv4)' so it is highlighted
> click properties
> ensure 'Obtain an IP address automatically' is selected
> scroll to Internet Protocol Version 6 (TCP/IPv6) so it is highlighted
> click properties
> ensure 'Obtain an IP address automatically' is selected

Every Windows update removes the 'Obtain an IP address automatically' settings on both my machines.

My question is:

Does anyone know how to get these settings to stay permanently? It's so annoying having every single Windows update knock out my internet access.

Trying on Edge, IE, Chrome and Firefox.Also apps that needs to connect to the internet cannot do so.I can ping external websites. Any help would be appreciate. I'm at wit's end now. RegardsReinhardt

Okay, I have two computers. A desktop, connected to the router via cable, and a laptop via wireless. They both run fine (I'm using the desktop right now). Yesterday, I was using my laptop, when it said Windows Updates were ready to install. That's fine, I always install them. When I restart like normal, the wireless internet's signal is "excellent" as normal, but now I have "limited or no connection".

So, I tried restarting the computer, I've tried restarting the modem, I've retried restarting the router, I've tried using the same ethernet cord that works for this desktop, and plugging it into my laptop, I've tried Windows Restore, I've tried disabling and renabling the adapters. I've tried rebooting (many times), but ALAS, no internet for the laptop.

Going further, when I try to repair the connection, it won't renew the IP. It also says the network has not assigned the computer a network address. Yet it says it has an IP. Also, it now doesnt have a gateway address either.

All I (think) I did was install windows updates, and I lost my internet to the laptop. I tried system restore which I believe removed the update, but still no internet.

Everything was working just fine, until I responded to a Windows update stating I needed to install important updates on Saturday, Oct. 5th.

Anyways, here it is

1. First, I do not have an SF file available, because I cannot get SF Diagnostics to run on my computer. I have tried downloading the most recent version, and there is an error message regarding Visual basic. I have attached that below.

4. Everything was stable on my system until October 5th, when I received notice that there were Important updates to install. These had apparently installed previously, had failed the first time(?). I follow that with a question mark, as I am not sure this was true. Anyways, installed again, and was marked as successful. Hit "Check Updates" and Windows update indicated they had to be installed again. Tried again, and entered into the endless loop others have described. Restored the computer to the point before installing the updates. Downloaded the appropriate "Fix-it" for Windows MicrosoftFixit50123.msi. Ran that. Then installed again. Thought things were good. Nope.

3. After this started experiencing BSODs when online. Both in Chrome and in FireFox (64-bit) browsers. I do not use IE, so cannot comment on that.

4. I have run Malwarebytes Anti-malware, and nothing was found (quick results attached). Quick Scan only. Previous Full Scans showed no infected files - Computer scanned once a week (Full scan).

5. I have run Microsoft Safety Scanner ... Read more

An update to Number 1. Where I could not get SF Diagnostics tool to work. Got it to work.
Attached is the SF file that I was able to find. Not sure the mini dump files are as they should be.
