first try disabling all firewall/AV/spyware/malware apps. check the windows taskmanager for any previous apps of the same type that might still be running. some of those apps don't uninstall completely unless you use their uninstall program.

then try this:

netsh winsock reset all

Open an elevated command prompt.

Windows 7 - click Start, click All Programs, click Accessories, right-click Command Prompt, and then click Run as Administrator. If you are prompted for an administrator password or for a
confirmation, type the password, or click Allow/Continue.

Windows 8/10 - right-click Start icon, select 'Command Prompt (Admin)'

Type in the following command:

netsh winsock reset all

(Info: Most of the Internet connectivity problems arise out of corrupt Winsock settings. Windows sockets settings may get corrupted due to the installation of networking software, or perhaps due to a malware infestation. You will be able connect to the Internet, but the packets won't transfer back and forth. And errors such as "Page Cannot Be Displayed" may occur when using a browser.)

are you running any VPN type programs? proxy services connections?
