Last night my laptop was working perfectly fine, internet and everything, I did not download anything, just looked at some forums and turned off the laptop. But today my internet does not work at all (Firefox and IE), but its does work on the other 2 computers in the house. I tried MSN messenger, and its said that my DNS and key ports weren't working (or something to that extent), and tried to repair it with no luck. I have no idea how either of these work, and what could be blocking them. I turned off my Firewall already, thanks.

Make sure both Firefox and IE are correctly set ("allowed") by your firewall software.
It would be wise to thoroughly scan your hard drive for malware.
Run checkdisk (scandisk).
Completely uninstall your firewall, then re-install it.
Whereof one cannot speak, thereof one should be silent.

Also, is there any Proxy set or used?
Check to see if set to automatic:

In Firefox,
Go Tools/ Options/ Advanced, click on the Network Tab, then click Settings.
Select the radio button that says Auto Detect Proxy Settings for all this Network
Click Okay

In Internet Explorer,
Go to Tools/ Internet Options, click on the Connections tab, then click on LAN Settings.
Select Automatically Detect Settings
Click Okay twice.
Chaos reigns within.
Reflect, repent, and reboot.
Order shall return.
