Web Browsers not working in Windows 10

All web browsers were working fine this morning.  I installed windows updates and now none of them are working, chrome, internet explorer, and edge.  I am connected to the network, I have a valid IP.  Tracert for websites returns correct data.  I tried uninstalling the updates I installed this morning.  I deleted the network adapter drivers, downloaded the latest from the manufacturer, and then reinstalled.  I tried the running the commands
1. netsh winsock reset catalog
2. netsh int ip reset reset.log hit
After reboot still did not work.

goto internet options, connections tab and make sure there isn't a automatically detect or proxy server would be the first thing I would check.
Try a different user profile
Try uninstalling these updates

I am having the same issue on two different user profiles

I already tried uninstalling the updates

I unchecked the option to automatically detect proxy server and that did not help

If you tried each of the above, look in C:\windows\system32\drivers\etc\hosts to see if there are any redirects (there should be no active addresses)

I just checked the host file, it is empty

you said none of the web browsers are working, what do they do when you open them?  Have you tired putting in an IP address (google) you maybe being blocked at the firewall, have you tried to manually configure a different IP address, is there any software on the computer that monitors/blocks http traffic?  Maybe system restore ?

Try the following (one of which repeats the above):

Open cmd.exe with Run as Administrator
Then  netsh int ip reset c:\resetlog.txt
Also, ipconfig /flushdns followed by net stop dnscache followed by net start dnscache
Then restart the computer

I ended up having to restore to factory defaults to fix the issue.
