Hello,
I'm running Windows 10 (upgraded from 7 a month or so ago) on an HP Pavilion g6 laptop. 
My computer suddenly stopped being able to connect to the internet a few hrs ago and now no website opens in any browser. Torrents work fine, surprisingly.
Troubleshooting gives me this "Your computer appears to be correctly configured, but the device or resource is not responding"
I tried the flushdns, registerdns, ... routine but it doesn't work.
Switching the router off and on again didn't work either.
When I try to change the DNS manually in advanced adapter options, on selecting 'validate upon exit' and closing the window, I get this message "Unexpected condition occurred. Not all of the changes could be made"
Upon googling I noticed on some forums people were pointing fingers at Virtualbox Bridged Networking Driver and VMWare Bridge Protocol. I can see these in the Properties window, but upon trying to uninstall these, I get another error 0x8007007E

I have uninstalled VMware, but the damn protocol is still there.
I'm not sure if that is really what is preventing me from making changes to the Network's properties like DNS and IP
Help needed badly.

Thanks in advance

Good news guys!
Everything just went back to normal as suddenly as the problem had crept up...
I still have no idea what had gone wrong... or what I did to make it go away, sorry :scratchhead:
