    Hi all,

    Today my laptop stopped opening pages on any browser (chrome, firefox, IE). Chrome says the page request is being rejected so I googled this up but wasn't able to fix it with the suggestions I found. Windows can't connect to anything in my network( other PCs etc.) and has no internet.

    The funny part about all this is that my utorrent still keeps on working inside windows.

    Internet and networking works fine when I am in safe mode with networking.

    I tried flushing dns, reset winsock, resetting wireless adapter, reset the router, renewed the wireless lease, disabled ipv6/ipv4 alternatively, set static ip, set manual dns and tried network diagnostics - which said that there is something wrong but has insufficient information available to find out what is wrong. I can ping google from cmd.

    My other PCs network absolutely fine so this is no issue with my router.

    Am I missing something ? Are there any good diagnostics software that will resolve the issue I'm facing ?

    Thanks in advance

    Huh, nice. Was it just the AV or the IS package? And which version was it?
