Hi All.

I have been working on a laptop the last 2 days and it has me stumped. I was told there was no internet connection and that's about all.
So far I have done several virus/ malware/ spyware scans. Removed "tool"bars, temp folders and all the usual general clean ups.
I have updated and reinstalled all network drivers and uninstalled all browsers (after testing them) except IE.
Ran repairs on network protocols and settings, checked IP config etc.
I have internet connection going by windows 7 network sharing center and I am receiving updates for windows and adobe. So I believe I have internet connection.
It has me stumped, I'm thinking a registry key or such has been corrupted and a full clean install. But I'm hoping its fixable.
I had to go home early and talk to Jim Beam to relax and get this off my chest. Thing is he's a good listener but not a sage of advice.
Tools I have ran and have at hand are D7 and Hirens, I want to fix this and learn somthing, so anyone got a an idea?
Cheers in advance.
From groom.

How are you connecting to the internet?

Family and loved ones will always be a priority in my daily life.  You never know when one will leave you.
