So after typing ping google.com then press Enter key, does it show "Ping request could not find host google.com. Please check the name and try again."?

I'm sorry. Please try some more solutions below:

- Please click on Start, then right-click on Computer, then click on Manage, then click on Device manager, then click on the + (plus) sign in front of Network adapters and right-click on each of the items under it and click on Uninstall and confirm (but don't check the box to delete the driver if shown). Then restart the computer, and it will automatically reinstall.

Next, please click on Start->All Programs->Accessories, then right-click on Command Prompt and click on Run as administrator. Then type each of the command lines below, one line at a time, and press the Enter key each time:

netsh winsock reset
ipconfig /release
ipconfig /flushdns
netsh int ip reset netshlog.txt

Then restart the computer and check.

- If that does not work, please click Start->All programs->Accessories->Run..., then type msconfig then click OK.
, then click on the Startup tab and click on Disable All at the bottom.
, then click on the Services tab, then click on "Hide all Microsoft services" at the bottom, then click on Disable All at the bottom.
, then click OK, and restart the computer and check.
