I am having problems with the internet. Here is a small sample of what is happening.

I click on the Microsoft Update Link in my All Programs bar and it goes to the site but all I get is the IE opens and then freezes.

I click on IE and go to Facebook and I am allowed to enter my username and password and then I get a blank page.

I tried another site but when I get the "Redirecting" message it freezes.

This has just happened to me today and it is confusing. I did have problems for a few days before that when the internet was losing connection and I would run the system diagnostic. It was telling me that the WinSock was corrupt. So I ran the Fix It from Microsoft. It got somewhat better but still happened. Today I decided to try System Restore and then all hell broke loose.

What I have done up to this point is run the Drivers and Utilities Diagnostics and I got 2 error codes with the same message. The first one says...
Error Code 0F00:0244
MSG: Block 32426526 uncorrectable data error or media is write protected.

The second one is Error Code 0F00:1A44 with the same MSG.

Prior to all of these issues the only think I had done with the computer is to remove Kaspersky. I had a trial and it expired but I am on a budget at this time and cannot get the full paid version and had to remove it just to download the AVG Free. I figured something is better than nothing.

Is there anything I have done wrong? Can someone help me with this issue?

Thanks in advance.
