Windows 7: Strange Network Behavior

07 Apr 2013   #1

7 Pro. 64Bit w/SP1
Strange Network Behavior

In my Notification area, my Network icon shows a small exclamation mark & states "No Internet Access". When I open the Network & Sharing Center, sure enough, there is a red X between my network icon & the globe icon.
The strange part is ... I CAN get online & surf all I want w/o a problem.

So does anyone know what may be going on? This started once I installed the free version of avast! v8.0 & no-one from the avast! forums has commented on the post I left over there.

Then uninstall AVAST v8.0 and see if the problem goes away :-)

If the operating system cannot connect to certain web servers, it shows as "No Internet Access". I get this every time that I use a VPN connection to the place where I work.
