I have a windows 10 device that a user somehow disable the network.  There is a Red X on the icon in system tray.  Wired Connection  shows the connection is available.   Checked wire and switch all ok.  Things I have done.  Remove the adapter and reinstalled it.  Updated to latest drivers for the card.  reset Network.  Disabled enabled.  Reset Tcp/ip stack with netsh commands.  Network properties show operational but Connetivity (IPv4/ipv6)  Disconnected.  I have turned off the Firewall, and Windows defender.    

Diagnostic detail shows "Windows couldn't automatically bind the IP protocol to the Network Adapter"  

I have checked settings in BIOS everything is enabled.  I have removed AVG

At a loss,

Go to Device Manager, delete the Wired device, shut down, start up and allow the device to reinstall itself. Does it work now?

Thanks. Now do a Windows 10 Repair Install

Go to the Media Creation Link

https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/software-download/windows10

Windows 10 is running, so click on the Download button (not Upgrade Button, select Open (Run) but NOT Save. Allow the program to run. Allow drivers to update. Then select Keep Everything.

If that does not work, back up, and do a fresh install of Windows 10.

Thanks for the comments,  I think I found it.  There was a AVG connection filter in the ipv4 properties.  When I uninstalled it the network popped right up.  Not sure how it got there or where it came from but it is gone now and the device is working properly again.
