Microsoft Edge Your Internet access is blocked


I am using Windows 10 with version 1809. From the last 4 hours in my laptop I am getting Internet connection is blocked error for all the webpages but to be ironic internet is working fine and when I browse with Internet explorer internet is working fine.

In fact, I am posting this question from the same laptop using the internet explorer, I hope this clarifies where the error is.

Troubleshooting steps I followed:

  1. Flush DNS using ipconfig /flushdns command
  2. Reset network setting
  3. Change the dns from google to cloudflair

But all of them not able to solve this issue.

Hi @Quinton,

Go to search and type cmd and in the cmd windows run the below command.

Try ipconfig /flushdns and then netsh winsock reset . Reboot and try again.

Also, try to run CCleaner and clean up the system and fix corrupted registry keys.
