So basically this just randomly began happening when I arrived at home today. Basically it's as the title says, I can't get onto the internet. I have pictures that might be able to help you identify the problem.
1st if I attempt to click on Firefox or internet explorer, http://s1261.beta.photobucket.com/user/Niko_Pappas/medi...
It immediately gives me an error message. http://s1261.beta.photobucket.com/user/Niko_Pappas/medi...

After that happened I thought it might be something with my drivers so I decided to reinstall them, this didn't work. Although, when I inserted my video driver disk I found something kind of interesting.
When I clicked on one of the links on the program, http://s1261.beta.photobucket.com/user/Niko_Pappas/medi...
I got sent onto the internet... http://s1261.beta.photobucket.com/user/Niko_Pappas/medi...

So basically I'm not sure why this is happening and I was wondering if any of you experts could offer me some guidance. Also I've tried clicking on other programs that would lead my to the internet although, they haven't worked. :(  I think the reason for this is because the video driver program was on a program that was on a disk that I inserted while the other programs are on my HDD or SD.
Alright, that's about it, thanks for any help!

Regards,

Niko Pappas

looks like firefox is damaged. do an uninstall of firefox but tell firefox to leave your personal data alone. then use ie or another browser to install the newest firefox. if it still errors out run malware byte scan and a good anti virus scan.

I am unable to run Internet Explorer as well. In addition, I've ran a Malware byte scan and it hasn't done any good.

malwarebytes is not anti virus program. download avg or avast or mse if you dont have one. also try booting into safe mode f8 with network support if it a virus you may be able to log onto the internet in safe mode.

I tried booting into safe mode although, nothing changed. I'm still not able to get onto the internet. Also I tried to re install firefox and after I did that I can't even redownload it because after deleting it I can't access the internet anymore. So no internet access at all at the moment. I could, however, use a different computer to download it and get it onto a flash drive.

Also something that may be causing the problem is upon turning on my computer, the second it gets to my desktop it says something like "unable to load driver". I've re installed my drivers for my mobo and my gpu. Maybe i have to do something with the windows installation disk? Although, I've had the "unable to load driver" error long before I wasn't able to access the internet, the internet problem is new.

Update: So I was able to re download Firefox (which for some reason lets me get onto the internet if I click on a link on one of my driver disks, pictures are in OP) by getting it on a flash drive and then transferring it over to my comp, and now I'm able to still use that method to get onto the internet, although, that's it
