Good job :thumbsup:

If you plan to reinstall McAfee make sure you check the McAfee site for an updated version.

Thanks, Happy Holidays for you also.

I solve it by uninstalling Windows update


I'm having issues connecting to the internet on a Dell PC running Windows 7.

I have another PC that is also running Windows 7, also a Dell - I'm not having any issues with it.

They are both wired connections into a Cisco Linksys wireless router E2500.

On one PC I cannot connect to the internet. I ran the connectivity issue diagnostic and got a message that there was an issue with the DNS Server. Subsequent diagnostics said that nothing was wrong

I've called my cable company; they could not help - signal is making it to the modem and to the other PC via the same router.

I've called the support for my router and all the settings on the issue PC (IP address, Gateway, etc.) are the same as the connected PC. The router is working fine.

I checked the Dell support site and the warranty expired 7 days ago (Murphy's Law)

I go to Device Manager and neither of the two listed devices are showing an issue.

I've restarted, I've done a winsock reset, I tried starting in Safe Mode with Network and still the issue persists.

My son was playing on his PC last night, turned it off and went to bed. This morning he could not connect.
