  1. So, the other day, I was using my PC and all of a sudden there was a power failure and my PC was shut down. After the power came back on, I turned on my PC and found out that there is no internet access. There is the yellow triangle error on the internet icon. The PC is directly connected to my router via ethernet and all the other devices connected to the router via wifi can access the internet, but my PC can't. I tried using USB tethering yet my PC can't connect to the internet. The Diagnostic tool tells me to turn off the router and turn it back on after 10 seconds to fix the problem. But it does not work. I tried reinstalling the network adaptor drivers but still no luck. My PC is windows 10 64 bit. Also, when i disconnect the ethernet and connected it again, the network icon shows to be connected for about 10-20 seconds without actually allowing me to connect to the internet... Any suggestions?
  2. Hello all What started out looking like a minor problem or annoyance. Has now become a major headache & looks like a major problem. I was surfing the net, at my usual places. Im using Firefox's newest browser, because I know its safer the IE. I use the Noscripts add on, as well as their popup blocker all the time. And at the time the original problem started. I was also using Nortons 360, along with Malwarebytes. My problem originally started with what seemed like a minor loss of internet connection. But then every few minutes or half hour or hour. I would once again be disconnected from the net. I've had connection problems with my cable before, so I immediately called my service provider. In the mean time, I ran my virus program & Malwarebytes & they both came up clean. So knowing my Nortons was soon to expire, I uninstalled it & downloaded AVG. Did a scan with that, which came up clean too. So then I put my disc for Nortons back in & noticed problem number two. The disc wasnt reading & when I went in to My Computer, the drive also wasnt showing up on my list. So after I had unisntalled AVG, I went to delete if from my programs folder & I couldnt delete it. I also found other files in there that looked exactly like the AVG file, and after uninstalling them. Noticed I couldnt delete them either. ( the icons dont look at all like they ones for the programs they are for. All the icons look exactly the same. But anyway, after my service provider sent out a truck & found no problems outside the house. I started checking the lines inside. Eventually, I have now replaced all wires/cables, got a brand new modem, & splitters. And Im still having the same problem staying connected to the net. Like I said, I finally downloaded & ran Hijackthis, & I see A LOT of nasties on the list. Should I make a new ppst in that forum as well? Thank you very much in adavance, for all help offered.
