    Windows 10 Upgrade

    Windows 10 believes it is not on the network.

    Hi - I've had troubles with Windows 10 since I upgraded from windows 7. I did a clean install of Windows 7 and then updated it .. then I let the Windows 10 upgrade roll. Everything mostly works. The problems is the word MOSTLY.
    the dingbats at Microsoft are seriously useless. I am writing this note on the system that is affected. Unfortunately for me I'm involved in a major project and have tons of specialized software installed and do not have the hours and days necessary to wipe all out and start over. I am trying desperately to preserve my installed software. Files are backed up but the installs are all registered and let me tell you some of them are truly a pain to move or reinstall due to ignorant license issues. SO.. can anyone help?
    This is the exact issue: Windows firmly believes that it is not online. I have the cute little computer icon with a BANG on it. BUT I'm online right now. The Windows Store is unavailable ( I'm not online remember ? ) The Windows Search is useless ( don't much care about that ) Edge is non functional. Firefox and Chrome work fine. If I click on Network and Sharing center - I get : The dependency service or group failed to start.
    I've combed through my services and they all look like they are functional. Can post the list if anyone wants to double check it.
    Ideas and suggestions that don't involve : Start Over would be really appreciated.

    Nope.. did not work. Whatever it is supposed to reset or reinstall after the PATH fails. It doesn't say what it is. Same result for both IPV4 and IPV6 .. and yes I always run command prompt as administrator.. just easier that way.
    However, my ipconfig shows ipaddresses but then has a tunneling adaptor with "media disconnected". I have attached my services list if you want to see it. (this is post re-boot)


    Oh and if anyone cares the build is: 10.0.10586
