As I have both Avast Internet Security and MBAM, both paid for licenses can 'Enable phishing and malware protection' be turned off in Chrome

Open your device manager and un-install your wireless driver and reboot the machine.
After the re-boot windows will re-install it.
Although this will erase your dns settings you will need to also un-tick ipv6 again.
If further isssues occur an update for the driver is needed.

No just un-isntall your network driver (LAN)

The item that is disabled is due to un-ticking ipv6 and disabling tunnel adapters with the instructions I had you run no issue there. :)

It seems that you might need to update the driver.
Go to your computers manfature site and get the driver from there this is the safest place to download from.

Here is your drivers name.

Broadcom NetLink ™ Gigabit Ethernet = Local Area Connection
