    Various apps cannot connect - inc Edge/Apps, others can.


    I'm tearing my hair out with this one, have searched and tried many fixes, but to no avail.

    I posted at : networking - Firewall allowed app still blocked in Windows 10 x64 Pro - Super User , but have got nothing that helped, so trying here.

    Pretty recent install :
    OS Name Microsoft Windows 10 Pro N
    Version 10.0.16299 Build 16299

    I have customized and attempted to plug Win 10 privacy holes, yet everything was working fine after doing this, then suddenly MOST (not all) new apps couldn't connect to net.

    It may have been caused by BiniSoft.org Windows Firewall Control, but can't say. When I uninstalled i specified for it to remove everything, rules, etc.

    So far I've reinstalled all Apps, in-place Win 10 reinstall, all of the possible resets: Winsock, NETSH, etc, also reset Firewall (just using default), complete repair with Tweaking Repair.

    Edge gives error : INET_E_RESOURCE_NOT_FOUND , yet the various fixes I've found online didn't help.

    No difference with Firewall disabled.

    Help me Obi Wans - you're my only hope!

    Hi reelism and welcome to Tenforums.
    This is a long shot, but try disabling the IPv6 on your NIC, and manually set the DNS servers for IPv4.

    Settings>Network & internet>Change adapter options
    Right-click your active network adapter and select properties
    Uncheck the box for IPv6
    Highlight IPv4, select Properties
    Select Use the following DNS server addresses
    Preferred = 208.67.222.222 (this is OpenDNS)
    Secondary - 8.8.8.8 (this is Google)

    open an admin command prompt and type
    Code:
    ipconfig /flushdns
    Reboot the system. See if that helps.

    Did the above, and had tried changing DNS servers before, but unfortunately no change.

    It seems to be 'spreading', i.e. I opened PC Whatsapp earlier, which was connecting fine and now isn't (and as a matter of interest launches from: C:\Users\m0rg5\AppData\Local\WhatsApp\app-0.2.9008 , I thought maybe other Portable apps might also connect from /local/ but no luck).

    Quirky other things: new install of Avast - can connect and update fine, but new install of Eset could not.

    I've got no idea what could be causing this - and based on my research - many after update to 1709 (I clean installed) are experiencing the same symptoms and don't know either.

    Any other leads?

    Try this: (it's from this thread, but answer originally from MS-EDGE development forums

    Looks like problem is in registry permissions

    I want warn you in advance, fixing this issue is not easy. It requires working from the command line. Here is what you need to do:

    Downloaded RegFix.zip from this page and extract all the files to a folder.
    https://developer.microsoft.com/en-us/microsoft...

    Open the command prompt:
    Open Start, type: CMD
    Right click CMD
    Click Run as Administrator

    At the command prompt, use the CD command to navigate to the folder containing the extracted files.
    If you don't know how to navigate to extracted files, learn how to do it using the instructions in this article:
    https://www.groovypost.com/howto/10-command-lin...

    See the topic: 4: Navigate File System Using Change Directory (CD) Command

    After navigating to the folder where you extracted the file Enter the command “set-executionpolicy unrestricted” (Without quotes) then type “A” (Without quotes)

    Hit Enter

    Type: “.\FixTcpipACL.ps1” (Without quotes) then hit Enter

    Exit the command prompt, then restart.

    Thank you, but that download link is dead.

    EDIT: one from original post works, onto it.

    No change.

    Windows Apps can't connect, portable apps can't either.

    BTW Admin CMD didn't work, but Admin PowerShell did.

    I have reinstalled Apps multiple times.

    I know it sounds strange, but, did you reset your router?

    And can you copy and paste result from ipconfig /all?

    Edit: did you try temoprary disabling Windows firewall? Just to check if this is the culprit?

    Hey, yes, have disabled Firewall and tested, and reset firewall multiple times, in various ways.
    I've also manually added programs to connect, no difference.
    As an aside now, after the RegFix, Control Panel\System and Security\Windows Defender Firewall\Customise Settings
    Shows : "for your security, some settings are managed by your system administrator"
    Obviously that's me, and I could turn off previously.

    I've also reset networking and restarted.

    I'm actually on laptop on various wifi connections, home router, public hotspots and mobile hotspot, all the same symptoms.

    reelism, you should delete Physical address (MAC) in your post (listed twice).

    While trying to resolve this problem, IPv6 should be disabled, DNS set to some reliable server (1.1.1.1 or 8.8.8.8).

    Disabling firewall didn't help? No connection with Edge , while firewall disabled?

    Nothing really strange in your settings..
