HP Envy x360 Suddenly Can't Connect to Wifi

Envy X360
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

Within past week my son's x360 laptop started failing to connect to all Wifi networks, open or encrypted.  Wifi is transmitting because I turned on Wifi hotspot on my phone and it was detected.  Can't restore because he had protection turned off to save SSD space.  Last connection was probably about 4/22/17 when MS KB 3150513 was installed.  So far I have tried to following:

 

Downloaded updated drivers to flash drive and installed - No Change

Downloaded Intel Drivers for AC7265 and installed - No Change

Uninstalled Device let drivers re-install - No change

Flashed Bios Update from Flash Drive - No Change

 

Followed HP Wireless networking troubleshooting guide to completion - No Change (Only variance was where after series of netsh commands was only supposed to have Receive Side Scaling Enabled and I had TCP Fast Open also enabled.

 

Windows network troubleshooter reports that there is a driver issue that it can't fix.

 

I beat my head on the wall - No Change

 

Disabled Firewall to verify it wasn't blocking connection - No Change

 

Any ideas please, he is a college student and I'm his tech support but this one has me baffled.

 

Thanks in advance.

Neil

Nevermind, figured it out.  AVG was blocking connection because it was waiting to complete an update, it couldn't finish update because no internet and infinite loop.  Was getting AVG popups to restart to complete update; disabled AVG Filter Driver under networking protocols and boom everything worked.
