I am having trouble connecting to the Internet with Google Chrome, even though IE works just fine and so does a bunch of other software. Chrome seems to work well on other accounts on the same computer (although I am not sure it is the same executable). On my account, trying to access
google.com I get the error message
Unable to connect to the Internet.
I am running Windows 7, and just upgraded to Chrome ver.
I saw the answers on the web asking to clear
Automatically detect settings option in the LAN settings, tried it and it does not work with it checked or unchecked (I don't have a proxy server or a configuration script, and IE seems to be running from exactly the same LAN Settings).
This question may be related, but does not seem to help much.
Thank you very much for your help.
- tried uninstalling, restarting and installing the admin version for all accounts; now the new version cannot connect to the Internet for all users.
- tried the first suggestion in the comments below - removed user profile, disabled extensions, started in incognito mode - all to no avail.
UPDATE 2 [Oct.3,2014]
- uninstalled, removed the
%APPDATA% subdir, installed back, rebooted, still does not work. Remote one still works ok.
