Post Laptop won't connect
I have a HP laptop here that belongs to friend. (She) :mrgreen: ...can't get online neither via wireless nor can I get it to work hardwired here at work. I get the message.

Boot from a LiveCD of Linux of whatever flavour you like. Ubuntu is the most popular one.

If the Internet works there, then it's a Windows/driver issue. Look into drivers and malware first, along with firewall settings. Ensure all TCP/IP settings are on auto. Check the HOSTS file. If all else fails (or your lazy) reinstall Windows :)
