Default Network adapter issues

ok so I am lookin at my friends Acer Aspire 5920 and I can't get it to connect to the internet... well it will connect but says limited connectivity and you can't browse or updated programs or anything like that. All that I can find wrong with it is in the device manager under Network Adapters there is a yellow exclamation mark next to "Microsoft ISATAP Adater #4" click properties and "This device is not wroking properly because windows cannot load the drivers required for this device. (Code 31)
Also dunno if its related or not but when you first start the computer an error comes up from Avast error code 10106 and says that my mails/news, I think it was, isn't being protected. If the Avast isn't related to the other issue then please help me get this at least running on the internet again. Thanks for any help and I'll do my best to get you any info you need

This happens when you connect directly into the router/modem?

Don't think the ISATAP is causing the issue.

I'd say the drivers are wrong. Try intalling them from the Acer website. Acer Europe - Service & Support, Drivers & Utilities, Downloads, Notebook, Aspire 5920
