    internet connection, browsers working poorly.


    Windows 10
    Like the title says, bad browser performance with a good internet connection.
    Google Chrome wont work at all, firefox works sometimes, edge works sometimes. Its only been happening over the past few days. I have a laptop at home on win 10, it must have received the same updates but is working perfectly.

    I tested the work station (with network connection) in safe mode and internet browsers functioned perfectly. I have tried disabling the firewall, deleting Avast, Malwarebytes, cmd lines, just about everything, but no luck yet.

    Hopefully one of you can help out.
    Thanks in advance,
    Chris

    Windows 10 Internet Connection working Browsers are NOT!

    All of this has been done previously. Including running in safe-mode. The resets do not solve the problem, merely restore browser capability temporarily, eventually the problem resumes.

    Windows 10 Internet Connection working Browsers are NOT!

    have been dealing with this for the past 2 weeks. seems like a windows 10 update messed things up but cant find where.

    what i'm trying now is adding the router's dns listings to the settings of the wired ethernet.

    sometimes turning off the ipv6 works in wired/wifi properties but i need that on to do homeshare so not a good permanent resolution and it came back while i had that off anyway.

    what's incredibly annoying is that it just randomly stops and returns. i'll hear my phone pinging when it loses and reconnects to the wifi and the other day it was every ten minutes for a bit. Super aggravating.

    seems like everything was normal before the latest updates.

    and to be clear when i look at the network connection i can see its sending and receiving so its not my actual connection. its how the browsers get to the outside, presumably something with the dns resolution?

    Hi boomerang. Welcome to the TenForums @boomerang

    From your post it works in Safe mode which limits third party software so first I would uninstall Malwarebytes and restart. Test.

    Next Avast.

    Any change defender is also on?

    There have been plenty strange things happening with Malwarebytes since v3.0. Not saying it is Malwarebytes but both of these are not loaded in safe mode.

    If that doesn't work I would use this procedure to further isolate.

    Perform a Clean Boot in Windows 10 to Troubleshoot Software Conflicts

    Hi Ken
    Yeah i spent 3/4 of the day turfing through the process laid out in the link you provided. While my machine was in Admin mode. Found nothing while disabling and enabling services, so I switched users and my problem seems to have disappeared. I'm still stumped, but now know a new fixit, and have my browsing back,.... for a while at least *Smile

    Thanks and Cheers man.
