Yesterday, my internet suddenly stopped working. Shamefully, I had earlier tried to torrent microsoft powerpoint, and received messages saying that the download, and thus my computer, was infected. Shortly after, my internet stopped working. It says the connection is fine, but whenever I try to open it, it just gives me the "internet cannot display this page" page. My roommates are having no trouble accessing the internet at all, so I know it's just my computer. I've tried multiple browsers, all to no avail. I've also run Malwarebytes and Compufix antivirus programs, and nothing has worked. I'e defragmented, rebooted endless times, and done asystem restore, and I'm completely at a loss for what to do next. Desperately seeking help. Thanks so much.

The power of accurate observation is commonly called cynicism by those who haven't got it.
