Open a elevated command prompt, run the following command:

 

netsh winsock reset catalog

 

Restart the computer and check if you can connect to the internet.

You need to have the windows.old folder on your C: drive to be able to go back to previous version of Windows. Please check to see if you accidentally removed this folder.

Before you jump to going back to Windows 7 I really recommend backing up all your important stuff, wiping your hard drive and reinstalling Windows 10 fresh.  I have upgraded many computers to Windows 10 now and had some exhibit weird behavior which was only fixed by wiping the system and doing Windows 10 fresh.  The upgrade process isn't fool proof on every machine.  Give that a try and I think you will be happy with Windows 10.
