Laptop Windows 7 no internet access


Recommended Posts


My brother brought his laptop over as he was having problems with it not connecting to the network.  I have looked at it and found that it will in fact not connect to the internet.  It shows no internet connection.  It will not let me install malwarebytes from a flash drive or if I copy it to the desktop.   On the local network I can see his laptop and my computers.  From there I can connect to his laptop, but cannot access my computers.

Thanks in advance for any help.

Hello, Welcome to Malwarebytes.
I'm nasdaq and will be helping you.

If you can please print this topic it will make it easier for you to follow the instructions and complete all of the necessary steps in the order listed.

Can you boot to Safe Mode with or with out Networking?

Using a good computer download the Farbar program and try to copy the program to the Desktop of the compromised computer.
If possible run the program in Normal or Safe mode. Post the logs for my review.

Download the Farbar Recovery Scan Tool (FRST).
Choose the 32 or 64 bit version for your system.
and save it to a folder on your computer's Desktop.
Double-click to run it. When the tool opens click Yes to disclaimer.
Press Scan button.
It will make a log (FRST.txt) in the same directory the tool is run. Please copy and paste it to your reply.
The first time the tool is run, it makes also another log (Addition.txt). Please attach it to your reply.

How to attach a file:
In the Reply section in the bottom of the topic Select Click the Choose a File.
Navigate to the location of the File.
Click the file. It will appear in section.
Click the Saving button.

Please post the logs for my review.

Wait for further instructions

I went to remove the updater by sweetpacks and there was an error while trying to uninstall it.  I didn't catch if there was an error #.   When I was dragging the curser down to try and uninstall again, I inadvertently hit the remove from list.  I went ahead and rant the FARBAR tool and am uploading the resulting text file.

At any rate the computer is still cannot connect to the internet, which I assume is the cause for not genuine windows warnings?

Is this true or did it just happen.

Was the computer working on line in the pass?

A product key may be available
Check this article.

If you do make sure it's from a reputable co. It may not and you will spent money for nothing.

On the other end Windows 7 is being phased out.

The computer has in the past always been able to connect to the internet and I do know the the windows is genuine.  My brother has had this computer for years, in fact in 2015 he had some problems with it I couldn't fix and I came here and I think the persons name it Twin Headed Eagle helped to resolve the issues.

Anyway my brother says these issues just start within the last 2 weeks.  My thinking is that when it finally connects to the internet it will determine it is again genuine. 

The product key is on the bottom of the laptop on a sticker.
