Re: Not Normal Internet Problem

To add to that, are you from the US and do you have any anti-virus software running?

Re: Not Normal Internet Problem

Not to get into any political discussion or what have you, but if you reside in a country that blocks certain pages, it might be against the forums guidelines and rules to assist you with circumventing this. So please be sure what you are asking is legal in the country you reside in.

 

If its overriding parental controls, we can't help you with that either.

Also, not having antivirus means that you probably have viruses that are affecting your ability to access the internet.  You do not have to download anything to get infected.  In todays world, you can become infected just by visiting a website. 

 

Previous comments apply as well.

Re: Not Normal Internet Problem

I agree having an antivirus and firewall is essential in this modern world.  However, did you activate the FREE windows firewalls and antivirus software that comes with Windows?

Re: Not Normal Internet Problem

From what it sounds like, you say that you can get to sites OK when using Linux, but not Windows, correct? If so, then there's something wrong with your OS.




If you like my post, or solution to your issue/question, go ahead and click on the little star by my name and/or accept the post as the Solution. It makes me happy.

I'm NOT an employee of Best Buy, or Geek Squad, though I did work as an Agent for a year 5 years ago. None of my posts are to be taken as the official stance that Best Buy will take on your situation. My advice is just that, advice.
Unfortunately, that's the bad luck of any electronic, there's going to be bad Apples... wait that's a horrible pun.
