RE: Unable to open any website

Could you improve your grammar and syntax - if you're not a native english speaker, disregard.

Scan with this:  MalwareByte's Anti-Malware
Remove all that is found

1st result from google search:  mbam-setup.exe

What browser are you using? Firefox? Opera? Internet Explorer?

If Firefox: does the address bar ask happen to ask you "shall Firefox save the password for...?"

RE: Unable to open any website

Probably a silly question but...

Have you checked that your router is actually providing a full working Internet connection?  Try attaching a known good PC, laptop, etc., and see if that connects or fails.


RE: Unable to open any website

He can test the internet connection by connecting another PC to download MalwareByte's unless it happens to be at another location, but that's a good idea.

Try a command line (start run   cmd) ping to see if you have connectivity to the internet from a DOS level.
ping www.google.com  

should get you 4 responses.

RE: Unable to open any website

You can also try this as it sometimes fixes quirks that have occurred in network connections:
1. Under Device Manager (Right-Click My Computer, Properties, Hardware tab, Device Manager), find your network adapter under "Network Adapters", right-click on it, and select uninstall.
2. Next, right-click on anthing listed in device manager, and select "Scan for new hardware" or "Scan for hardware changes" - I forget the exact name.
3. Open Internet Explorer, and if it doesn't pull up a web page, close it down, and reopen again.

If you get nothing above, try the PING method mentioned by goombawaho above as well.

Basically reinstalling the network adapter driver forces the system to refresh all the network-related settings... well, don't know if it handles ALL of them.
