Windows 10: Browsing ONLY (not mail) stops working about half hour after reboot

    Yes, but now it's intermittent. I have never seen anything like this before. I know that something is blocking port 80, port 8080, and probably a few other ports, but where is that $#@@(*&||@* setting?

    So last night I went to the MS support web site to set up an appointment for a support call, and the first scheduled time for a call back was Thursday at 6.30 pm, almost 48 hours later. I wonder if they are being overwhelmed with FCU issues. My wife's system was upgraded to FCU during this whole process, and the upgrade didn't affect the issue at hand.

    Still, everyone here is on the side of the good guys. That's why I love this forum.:)

    I think all the vendors are overwhelmed. Apple is taking on the chin with there iOS and OSX.

    You are not using a Proxy server are you.

    Start > Settings > Network and internet > Status > right side Network and sharing > lower left corner Internet Options > Connections Tab > Lan Settings


    My usually next steps are these four commands. Understand if you want to wait for MS.

    Run the following four bolded commands. Use a Command Prompt(admin) or Powershell(admin)
    Do not key in info in brackets, there for your information.

    ipconfig /flushdns (Clear the dns cache)
    nbtstat -RR (release and refresh NetBIOS names)
    netsh int ip reset (reset ip settings)
    netsh winsock reset (Reset Winsock Catalog)

    Ken,

    Thanks. I've spent way too much time on this issue, because I've done a lot of diagnostics beyond what i've described here The worst part: after I did the network reset, the mail client (Outlook) on my wife's system is apparently deleting some messages. Messages that had been on my wife's phone have now disappeared. That's a new one.

    And I'm a bit pissed at MS right now, because this problem seems to be some sort of very selective memory leak. I just don't want to have to do a complete re-install. We're not at home now, and I don't have all the install media (on HDD) with me. Plus, I have better things to do when I'm traveling.

    Agree. A network reset will not change settings in Outlook. There are deeper issues. Good luck.

    Did you troubleshoot your internet connection ? And test for speed ? https://www.speedtest.net/

    Also, check Event Viewer for errors (Control Panel/Sys&Sec/Admin Tools/View Event Logs)
