    After reinstalling windows 10 due to network & internet icon failed to display, windows was successfully reinstalled. But then update repeatedly failed and the system was pointing to “check internet connection” when the ethernet connection clearly shows “You are connected to internet.” After having run windows troubleshooting multiple times and checking around for settings within the windows, nothing solved the problem. As soon as the error code was spotted, I went on google and saw your posting. Tried the first two but did not solve. Tried the third one and ran sfc /scannow. The system came back with a message there was a corrupted file and it was fixed. Your posting helps.
