My computer has not had internet connection every since Microsoft updates were done. I have tried system restore (prior to updates). I have reinstalled Windows 7 twice. I noticed computer does not stay on Homegroup but defaults to Public Network. There are no other computers in the Homegroup. Is this the problem? The network icons I create do not stay permanently. I have tried changing items in Iv4 and IV6, winsock reset, services. Nothing works. It seems that the wired connection is blocked. I have WIFi on my cell phone. There are several devices in he device manager which appear to be duplicates but I cannot delete them.

Hello,
 
Thank you for your reply to help me. After I reinstalled Windows 7 and connected my printer it still did not work. I turned the computer off for a little over 24 hours. When I turned the computer back on, the internet was connected to the Homegroup. I do not know how long this will last. But for the time being I am connected.
I have three other problems which has lasted for *several* months.

  • My computer takes a long time to power up, at times. I have to push the power button repeatedly anywhere from 2 to 8 minutes, before it will turn on. It seems as though it is an "air pump". After I push it so many times, the last time I push the power button in I can feel resistance, then it turns on. There are times when I just have to push the button once or twice, it turns on right way. After I come back in 20-60 minutes, it may only take a second or two to start-up.  Because the time varies for start-up I have dismissed the problem.  I tried a can of air to blow out the dust, temporary fix. It is annoying. 
  • My usb port went out one day. I have three of them in the front of my computer. Two of them work, but the third one does not. I have tried reinstalling the usb hub in device manager, no help. I thought it was a virus, but I thought the problem would go away after I reinstalled windows 7. No help. 
  • My front speakers will not work using the jacks. I have uninstalled and reinstalled retek . They used to work last year. Now the only way I can listen to sound through headphones is to use an usb headphone adaptor. I would like to plug my headphones into the jacks which came with the computer.

It sounds as if you have some severe hardware problems.

Please post over in the hardware problems where someone more expert may be able to help you:  http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/f/7/internal-hardware/
