    Hi , I've been searching around for a few days now and can't find the help I'm looking for.
    Since installing Windows 7 extreme edition I haven't been able to update or connect to the internet with any of my programs; uTorrent, Skype, Program updaters/Downloaders etc.

    They all come up with the message of "can't connect to the internet"

    Due to this I currently do not have any A-V installed on my computer, nor any firewalls, as I've already disabled / Un-installed everything I had in the hopes that one of these were causing these problems.

    I made exceptions in all my firewalls, that didn't work. Deleted them from Firewall history exceptions, uninstalled (eg : )Skype , re-installed etc. Checked Windows firewall (currently disabled) , made sure it's not trying to run through a proxy server.

    I've tried pretty much everything I can think of, searched every Forum I've found but to no avail. The only thing I can do is use my web browser.

    My previous version of winows was 7 ultimate. I never had any problems with connection or updates.

    If you need anymore information please ask, I'm tired and have a pounding headache from trying to figure this out, so I may have forgotten to mention some things :p

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.
