Windows 7: Can't use internet if Tunnelbear is disabled

Can't use internet if Tunnelbear is disabled

Yesterday I installed Tunnelbear. I enabled it and then disabled it and I didn't have Internet so I enabled it again. At that moment AVG security said it found a threat. I pressed remove threat and restarted my computer. I realized that I can't connect to the Internet. I uninstalled Tunnelbear but I still couldn't connect to the Internet. Today I tried everything again. Nothing changed. I pressed troubleshoot and it said remote device won't accept the connection and then it said The device (web proxy) is not set up to accept connection on port.... I sent an e-mail to Tunnelbear but they still haven't replied... I don't know what to do. Oh and on my mobile and on my laptop the internet is just fine. So it's obviously a Tunnelbear problem.

Try running CCleaner (for both files and registry)
Then run in cmd:
Netsh winsock reset

Windows 10 Home 64-bit

Uninstall Tunnelbear, then shutdown and reboot, should fix the problem. Tunnelbear should revert any changes it made, but those changes won't actually come into effect until after the reboot.
