Weirdness with VirtualBox and Windows 7

First post of geek stuff. Was running though my virtualmachine horde and I ran into an issue with Windows 7. The bridged adapter was saying 'no internet'. Googling was less than helpful, so after poking at it a few times, I shut it down, switched from bridged to NAT, restarted and got network. Ran Windows Update and got two Windows OS updates, 2999226 and 3080079. Installed those, shut down, went and reset to bridged, booted back up and huzzah I had network.

Weird thing, a friend of mine was talking about the same issue, but on a Windows 10/VMware setup. Which is why I jumped to the 'Ok, it's Windows' conclusion. Hope this helps someone out there.
