Solved How to really fix Windows 10 error, No Internet, secured

Specs: Windows 10
I foolishly fell for trying Windows 10 on my backup PC. It installed Ok and worked with internet at first. The next time I started Windows 10, there was no internet. I could connect to my home network but received the message in the Connect icon: No Internet. secured.
I have been working on fixing the problem for a few days but have made no headway: uninstall and reinstall driver for wifi; reset winsock, reset wlan card; produced wlan report; disabled wifi and used Ethernet connection; going to registry next. My three other PCs communicate perfectly well with the home network and with internet through cable modem and ISP.

In my opinion Windows 7 is better, especially for older hardware that came with Windows 7 on it. The latest generation of machines that came with Windows 7 transition fairly well to Windows 10 and probably nearly all Windows 8 machines benefit from the upgrade to Windows 10, but most of the rest are probably better left alone. My recent build was completed just after Windows 10 came out but I loaded it with Windows 7 and have not looked back. At work I upgraded most of the Windows 8 machines to Windows 10 and they have been much better that way. I see no reason why you need to abandon Windows 7 on that machine. There are a few advantages to Windows 10 for the very latest hardware out there now that Windows 7 may just barely be able to support with drivers and that will probably continue as we go forward so futures builds along the cutting edge will need the latest OS to get the most out of it.

I consider the issue resolved and hope all works out best for you.

Done that already.
I finally gave up and hit the recovery button, but it doesn't work either!
So I am going to purchase a box with Win 10 and try to repair my installation. If that does not work, I will use my old recovery disks for Windows 7. Unfortunately, I failed to use the roll-back option that Windows 10 had for only 30 days. Darn.

I did the youtube thing already. It is one reason that I used "really fix" in my question.
I finally gave up and hit the recovery button, but it doesn't work either!
Office Depot tells me that they can roll back my Windows 10 and restore Windows 7. I think I will try them on that.
Unfortunately, I failed to use the roll-back option that Windows 10 had for only 30 days. Darn.

Do not spend any money on this. You do NOT need to reinstall or rollback, all you have to do is fix the connection problem. "Secured" is the keyword. Which antivirus program are you running?

Is this a DNS problem?
Can you reach other PC's within your network? Can you access the router setup page?
Can you ping IP address 8.8.8.8 from the troubled PC?

Have you tried disabling your antivirus program temporarily to see if it allows internet connection. This will tell you if it is related to the program or not.
Are you using Windows Firewall or the one that may have come with your antivirus program? If you had the AV firewall active, Windows 10 may have activated its own firewall. If you have two firewalls active, they will interfere with each other. Turning off AV completely or turning off its firewall and making sure Windows firewall is active may solve the issue. Of course make sure you turn on antivirus program when done testing.

Thanks for your help, but I pulled the plug and went back to Windows 7. Windows 10 was getting flakier and flakier in other functions as I worked to fix the connnection issue.
sluc: I do not think it is a DNS problem. Yes, I can reach only one other PC in the network (there are three other PCs on the network plus a printer). I can ping from the troubled PC but I did not try to access the router setup page.
Fingers: I disabled the antivirus programs (Windows 10 and Norton Internet Security). I did not worry about turning them back on since the PC could not get to the Internet.
riider: I am using Norton Internet Security av program.
JohnW: Yours looks like a comprehensive solution, but I decided to install Windows 7 and chalk this one up to a bad experience.

I was asked to pick the best answer, and I choose my answer and Fingers' answer: roll back to Windows 7. If you install Windows 10, it will save your old operating system in C:/Windows.old file for 30 days, during which time you can roll back easily. I think you could also save that file on an external drive and use it for longer than 30 days.
The next best answer I think is by Johnw who suggested using the Tweaking.com windows repair, which I did not try.
