Hello, I have windows 7 Home premium on Sony vaio Laptop.
Everything was going fine till the moment I updated my AVG anti-virus. Windows won't connect to the Internet anymore, it doesn't even detect my Ethernet cable whenever plugged in. So I removed the anti-virus, nothing happened, I did System restore, again nothing happened. When I ping any address, it says "Transmit Failed.General Failure" even-though everything is set correctly. Any suggestions??

Try going to the Sony website and downloading the latest chipset (motherboard) and network card drivers and install them. Also, trying running Hitman Pro to see if there are any threats on the machine.
