I uninstalled ESET and all wireless access is down


Recommended Posts

I had installed ESET just to do a scan since I had a bug that clamwin and macafee just wasnt catching, yall got it and as such I went to uninstall ESET so I could have more space on my pc since Im running low already and I didnt need it after this anyway. I went to uninstall it, used the tool, but after the restart I went to use chrome and it wouldnt let me in, and the windows troubleshooter says the connection to the router and to google.com is fine, but I cant seem to get out with chrome or edge. Please help, I would appreciate it if we could get this fixed quickly.

Are you sure that while uninstalling ESET you didn't lose also the certificates needed to access websites? This happened to me while testing BitDefender but during an install rather than an uninstall. Long story made short, the AV installed but the certificates didn't for some reason and this caused the internet access through browser to brick. 

There is a case where the uninstall also uninstalled the ESET certificates without substituting them with new ones (McAfee or anything else) and this might cause issues.

Just an idea.

Try reinstalling the drivers for your network adapter.

This is still the best solution to refresh the network connection settings.

So I did the reinstall and it didnt work. A buddy of mine had the great idea to try disabling my firewall to see if ESET had messed with it, and it turns out that was it. Thanks yall for the help!
