Hey guys came across this website trying to fix this problem essentially but can't figure out how to so I thought I'd post and hopefully get some one-to-one help as following other people's steps doesn't seem to help.
I have a custom built computer using Windows 7 Ultimate and have previously only used it wired, ive moved house and now having to use wireless and ive got this error come up.
It's not working in any browser but for some reason I can connect to Skype. (EDIT, I said I couldn't but I can)
I literally have no idea what to do so any help would be brilliant!
Thank you for reading my post!

Brad

Oh also I've tried deselecting "predict network actions to improve page load performance" and followed these instruction -

But still nothing.

EDIT: I opened Internet Explorer, hit the Fix Issue button on the error page and Windows 7 detected that somehow my DCHP was turned off and Windows prompted me to re enable it.
