Windows 7: Win 7 not recognising actual internet connection

05 Jul 2012   #11

Windows 7

Think you're on to something - Norton has been having problems since I got rid of Bonjour. Go figure. The last two days it has been having Error 8506, 422. Will have to investigate alternative virus protection methinks. Any suggestions?

Windows 7 Ult, Windows 8.1 Pro,

I use malware bytes for virus scans with real time protection turned off and Windows Defender which is built into Windows 8.

For Windows 7 you can use Microsoft security essentials.

When you remove Norton be sure and use the removal tool that is made for it.
