Windows laptop giving general failure on ICMP…

My windows 7 laptop can’t communicate with other network resources or connect to the internet.
-       On LAN cable, it does receive an IP but I can’t ping to any other network device with or connect to the internet.  I thought drivers could play a role but no luck
-      I’ve tried WIFI or a 4g modem but no avail, similar problems
-      Firewall and AV turned off but no luck.  

The following commands were run in admin mode but no luck
Ipconfig /flushdns
Ipconfig /release and renew
Ipconfig /registerdns
Netsh> winsock reset
Netsh> int IP reset reset.log

Windows system restore was done but still no luck, restore point looks too recent… please advise whether you guys have encountered this before.  

 Thanx
Windows 7Windows OS

thanx all for the feedback, I will come back with results soon on everyone's comment.
sorry for the late  response,  I had to use  the offline password reset tool to log back into the machine.  I got logged out after a system restore and I couldn't remember the local admin password.

@ Snibborg:  I do get a valid gateway IP and I can’t ping any other machine

@ Miguel Angel Perez Muñoz:  I did go through you link, no luck

@ Radhakrishnan Rajayyan:  good question,Yes I can’t ping my loop back IP
Re-install will be our last option

@ ScottCha:  I will update you on this once done with those scans:  Malwarebytes
