    No internet connection but the mail app works

    I have just solved the Bad Pool Caller/Header BSOD bug (after corrupt Kaspersky installation). At the same time when the BSODs started to pop up my internet connection stopped to work. I use wifi and it displays that the connection is working. All web browsers cant display pages. Chrome suggests to change proxy settings (they are at default). Metro apps dont work too (but the mail app is working just fine - at least the gmail account).
    I made a disk check and it found and fixed 1 error. I performed a clean boot (but im not sure if I did it correctly).

    Please help me solve it.


    I fixed the problem. I had to enter the settings of my wifi connection and turn off Comodo Agent or something. It caused all the problems. IPV6 wasnt working.

No Internet Browser Works Properly
I recently did a fresh install of Windows 8 on a separate partition. It works perfectly - except that none of the internet browsers are working properly and most of the metro apps that involve grabbing data from the internet stay stuck at the loading screen. Internet Explorer 10 can't go online...
