Low and behold I managed to screw something up. Clearly I made a mistake and allowed something not so friendly to be downloaded. Now when I do a Google search in Firefox I am redirected to random spam sites. Firefox and Norton block attempt in most cases. The same time I began having issues with the browser, my network connections from the task tray were removed. In addition to those two things my Windows Firewall went inactive, and I "don't have permission" to turn it back on.
Something called "Conduit Search" was added into my firefox with "apps" and a search bar. I uninstalled that, but it didn't fix anything other than removing the annoying search bar.
