    Some additional information, possibly unrelated:

    I tried a sfc /scannow, and it did find some corrupt system files it was unable to fix. I found a supposed solution called DISM, but apparently it needs an internet connection. I'm exploring other options, but again, it might just point to the solution being a re-installation of windows.

    I was going to Suggest an Inplace Upgrade 1st , hopefully a Clean install isn't needed...

    If you run SFC 3 times and it still has issues ..yes try DISM and then SFC again ....it depends on what kind of install you have and if you already have the Image for DISM on the computer AFAIK.

    But going Inplace , may save all that.... download the ISO on the old Win7 computer if you have to and use a USB key to transfer

    DISM, like sfc /scannow, is a standard repair tool provided by Microsoft. they are usually mentioned in the same breath by MS support technician over on MS's support forums (and typically their answer for most questions :-) ) . DISM can be told to use a local source (such as a win10 iso) instead of the internet. See this tutorial:

    On another similar thread @EdTittel has posted a link to the ESET forums about the firewall blocking DHCP requests. Maybe that's your problem too?

    I gave up and re-installed windows. It wasn't too big of a hassle, only took an hour or so to get all the settings back to where I had them. Which in retrospect is no time at all. The good news is I'm back online.

    I had ran all the various tools, and there was quite a few problems. I'm not sure, but I think the problem was primarily being caused by this old MS office crack, KMSPico. No idea how that got on there. I do have office but have never used it on this PC. It looked like KMS had been uninstalled, but had left behind remnants that were interfering with some server communication service. So not a virus per se, but functionally the same thing.

    DISM wouldn't run either. I downloaded/mounted the iso and followed the instructions you all had linked but kept getting "source files not found", and eventually just ran out of patience.

    Anyway, thanks for all the help!

    Well at least you are back up , now I suggest Installing Macrium Reflect Free and doing Image backups to an external 2-3 times a week so if needed you can just rollback 2-3 days and fix stuff... , a reimage takes about 12-15 mins and no loss of Data...
