Windows 7: Some programs will not recognise internet connection

14 Aug 2015   #21

Windows Home Premium 64bit

I'm not sure if this is related or not, but I just randomly got a "Microsoft visual c++" popup. I don't know what I did to trigger it either.

Windows 7 Ultimate x64 SP1

See How To Fix Windows Error 0xE06D7363

For steps 1 and 3 - use CCleaner instead. (WinThruster mentioned in the article may be different in the sense it may be trying to repair the error, CCleaner only cleans).
Step 4 - check your drivers manually, check the manufacturer's site.
Step 9 - a repair install may help before trying a clean install, ask us if it comes to this.
