So the ping starts failing when you bring up IE?

Does it come back when you close IE?

If you open up a second cmd window does ipconfig fail as before? I found this article from MS:

PS. Going to bed now. Exhausted for some reason.

Sure, it's an old article but I'm pretty sure the registry stuff is the same.

I followed the article and the computer name was already listed in all the right spots. Sometimes when I start internet explorer I lose connection, sometimes I don't. My computer also won't let me perform a windows update.

Also, I tried to create a system restore point and it wouldn't let me.
