This could happen if the order of your network adapters on your computer is compromised. Check the order of your network adapters and be particularly attentive to network adapters that are invalid or no longer have a corresponding hardware component.
It could also happen if your computer or the network is blocking (e.g. a firewall or a proxy setting) outgoing http calls to http://license.aligned.ch.
