Hi Edward,

Try the below steps:

1. Close all applications
2. Close / disable startup applications (such as skype, messenger, or any background application)
3. Start/Settings/Control Panel/Internet Options/Delete Browsing History/Delete All (in passwords)
4. Also delete files and settings stored by add-ons (check) and click ok
5. Close all windows, and files (just in case). Nothing should be in open mode
6. Go to Start/run
7. Type in the open: %temp%
8. Press enter
9. Start deleting the temp files
10. You might not be able to delete some of the files, because they might be in use. Leave them alone.
11. If you get an error 'Error Deleting file or folder' Click OK and continue deleting some of the files by type
12. When you are done. Reboot the computer

Now try to accessing any website either using Firefox or IE and post the results (if working or not)

Happy Computing :thumbsup:
