I've been having some problems recently with my laptops internet connection. For some reason I can only connect to the internet if my VPN is activated (btw im using IPVanish).
I have a desktop, Xbox and another laptop that all connect to the internet fine but for some reason my laptop has this problem. When I open Google Chrome and try to go on a website it gives me an error sayin that i was unable to connect to the internet. The second I connect to my VPN everything works just fine The strange thing, however, is that when i connect with this laptop at a hotel or someone elses wi-fi it works fine.
My friend suggested formatting my PC as there might be a corrupted file but before trying that i wanted to hear your suggestions?
