  1. First you need to tell us what has happened since you could last access the internet, and if you had virus protection on it before.
  2. The last time I could access the internet, I was receiving pop-ups about viruses that infected my system; I ignored them and kept surfing. A few minutes into my session, I got kicked out of the internet. I didn't have an anti-virus at the time. Hope this helps.

    You have a virus, windows offline defender could help, make sure to create the cd on a non infected computer. when it starts it starts as quick scan, cancel and give 5 hours for full scan. and get some protection, along with firefox and ad blocker
