    Some internet processes don't work on fresh win10 install

    I just got a new laptop and I proceeded to freshly install windows 10 on it because I don't want all the bloatwear that manufacturers include.

    I completed the windows install. Logged into the system and went straight to updates. I proceeded to install all of the available updates which had me restart a few times. After the final restart I went back to windows update to make sure there were no more updates available, and I got the message that it couldn't not connect to windows update. This was the first indication that there was a problem.

    I am able to search Google, watch YouTube videos and even download programs. But any process within an application that accesses the internet fails. For example, logging into GeForce experience fails, windows update can't connect, smart screen in edge fails, logging into Gmail in any browser fails, and activating my license key in malware bytes fails.

    Does anyone know what could be causing this? Any help at all is greatly appreciated.

    To me it seems like some sort of authentication/security/firewall issue.

    Hi, superficially this sounds more like an internet configuration issue than anything else as you have selective internet access.

    You could try a different DNS, (DNSjumper, free, can help); try pinging the sites you can't access and see what result you get; check if you have any proxy server settings; flush the DNS cache (see DNSjumper); try this:
    Reset TCP/IP or Internet Protocol in Windows 10/8/7

    A great way to protect yourself against issues arising when making changes to your PC is to use disk imaging routinely throughout the process and on an ongoing basis. E.g. Macrium reflect (free) + external storage for disk image sets. That wasy you have a 2nd chance by restoring Windows/partitions/disks to a previous working state. Also provides a full backup.
