Windows 10 limted internet and Virtual Box


I installed Windows 10 on two computers - the first, a Lenovo Thinkpad Helix, upgrade worked fine. However, the second machine, a Lenovo thinkcentre, upgraded OK, but no internet access, just the dreaded yellow warning on the Ethernet icon.

Tried troubleshooting, deleting the interface and re-installing, but no joy. I checked the Ethernet properties and noted a Virtual box network driver - I use Virtualbox for development.

On the off-chance that it was a factor, uninstalled Virtual box - problem solved, Internet restored.

The next problem is that I need to use Virtual box for work!

I would just try and re-install Virtualbox. I have it installed on my system.

Reinstalled but had the same problem. Aside from uninstalling Virtual box again, the only way I've found to fix it for Internet access is to deselect "VirtualBox NDIS6 Bridged Networking Driver" from my Ethernet adaptor. No time to dig any deeper at the moment.
