Windows 10 is the most recent and advanced update, with unique and remarkable features. It has pre-installed anti-virus software called Windows Defender and more importantly the Start button is back for greater convenience and quick navigation.
Despite all of that, users report some issues with the update. In particular we have come across a rather unusual complaint that the internet does not connect but still works! How bizarre is that?
The error often reads “No Internet secured” with a tiny yellow exclamation mark on the internet connection icon. Something like this:
Even though the internet is working, it can be rather annoying or intolerable for certain people to see this error or mark. In some circumstances certain apps refuse to load because of this error.
The problem does not lie with the router or your internet device but it is probably caused by minor bugs. There’s no need to worry. We have some simple and easy solutions for you to fix this problem.
