Well, I hope that this will solve your issue!

@nEAnnam Aha, I see. To be able to see if it works properly, the easiest way to test it is to verify that it gets an IP from a device (like your modem or router), and then is able to connect to other computers and transfer data. Since you have some Internet connectivity, it appears to be working. Windows' configuration of Internet-related services may affect connection quality, but Windows 7's stock settings at boot should work fine for typical users.

@nEAnnam Red components or peripherals is not a common term. The component that you listed is your Ethernet interface. Is it literally listed somewhere in a red color? I am still unsure of what you mean.

@nEAnnam You're welcome! And which components do you mean by "red components"?

comment Windows Aero turns to basic automatically
You have run the Windows 7 Experience Index, right? I don't know why it would revert at random times, but this allows Windows to know that your computer should be able to run Aero fine. If it doesn't pass the Index, it won't allow Aero to be turned on.

What is your ISP and is it DSL, Cable, or something else (like cellular or satellite)? What times of day do you experience this or is it at all times of the day? Have you tried doing these things at different times of the day? Also, if you don't have an Antivirus, I recommend you get one soon, just as a general tip (it shouldn't hurt your problem here, but it also shouldn't affect it otherwise, either).

comment How to turn on and remote access home PC to monitor my kid's PC usage?
I've tried enabling Wake On LAN for the purpose of being able to automatically turn on my computer to access the printer. If you can get it to work, then awesome, but I had a very difficult time doing it and never got it to work. As a technically-inclined user, if that's the case, then I wouldn't recommend spending the effort to try it unless you really know your way around computers.

Also, if you decide to reinstall your drivers, make sure you completely remove/uninstall any drivers you have installed for your graphics card already, before installing the new ones.

comment How do I mirror a monitor in Windows Vista?
This option has existed since at least Windows XP (I'd say earlier than that, since Windows 98 really ushered in multimonitor support for Windows). It definitely will work in Vista.

comment Google Chrome Launches Internet Explorer on Windows 7 64-bit
@Joel Coehoom Chrome resides in the User directory. So it is entirely possible that it could have modified that executable even without Administrator privileges. So no, I don't think it got a lot deeper than he thought it did. I think it got just as deep as he thought, but it's just that you don't need to go any deeper to modify Chrome.

comment Does there exist a folder content reporter with printing and filtering?
I know of no way to do this natively in Windows via a GUI (in fact I recall this being one thing Mac users would miss in Windows). However, I do believe there are third party options available. This would have to be something I'd need to look up.

@Breakthrough Ah, that's interesting. I wasn't aware they provided that service as well.
