Flush the DNS cache and restore MS's Hosts file ...
Copy and paste these lines in Note pad.

@Echo on
pushd\windows\system32\drivers\etc
attrib -h -s -r hosts
echo 127.0.0.1 localhost>HOSTS
attrib +r +h +s hosts
popd
ipconfig /release
ipconfig /renew
ipconfig /flushdns
netsh winsock reset all
netsh int ip reset all
shutdown -r -t 1
del %0

Save as flush.bat to your desktop. Right click on the flush.bat file to run it as Administrator.

Your computer will reboot itself. It may required a second reboot if the problem isn't fixed.
After days of struggling to get my laptop to run properly this was the solution.

It show I was connected to my wireless router but the browsers wouldn't load anything and my NetGearGenie.exe kept crashing on start up. I ran this batch file, my computer restarted and my computer popped up with a firewall allowing the exe now my internet works.
That is good to know Mreighty8, thanks for letting me know.

I made an .exe version of the IPReset file which you only need to click on now.

This STILL works!

I found this solution online after hours of trying to figure out why my computer showed as connected to the Internet, but wouldn't load any browsers or web pages. I even uninstalled AVG, as I think the bugginess came from one of their updates.

Regardless - this totally worked for me, and saved me having to take my computer into the shop.

THANKS!!!
