im not really too sure what happened
last night, computer was fine.
today (after my little sister and her friends probably messed with my cmoputer) it wont connect to the internet using firefox or opera
right now im using Winamps web browser until i figure this out.
i figure since winamp and AIM can still connect to the internet (along with windows updates and other programs) its either proxy/firewall setting (which i checked, at least to my knowlege, all possibilities on my computer), or its a virus.
i did a full scan with the most recent version of Malwarebytes and at the moment im doing a full scan with Dr Web CureIt ...
i have avast free (the paid version was giving me problems) and i have Bitdefender but its been having issues lately so its kinda disabled right now (it wont scan, avast probably killed it, even though i had the on-demand scanner off which is usually the only problem with those two). i obvioulsy have malwarebytes, but ive already scanned with that.
i MAY be installing a paid version of G-data but i dont really know if the version works or not because i got it from someone else...*hint hint*
i dont really wanna uninstall Avast AND Bitdefender if g-data doesnt work, id be screwed for awhile....
as far as trouble shooting with firefox (thats my main concern, opera is on my computer as a backup) [btw i dont have IE on my computer] ive looked at the connection settings and they look fine.. ive tried turning IPv6 off and that didnt change anything.... tried multiple different sites, restarted my computer... the usual
thats about it though
if anyone else has some suggestions let me know.... ill update you guys if Dr Web finds an issue and/or i/it solves the problem...and ill post the solution too...
if my spelling is failing its because im in a hurry, not really paying attention, plus im not using firefox
--thanks for any help you guys have to offer
