I have a Windows 8 Asus.
Here is the current issue: I can barely access anything in ANY browser. I can get on Facebook, Gmail, and a few other sites. But I keep getting messages saying "this page is not available" or "check your connection". (The messages that you usually get when you open a browser and you aren't online.) However, I am online. My internet connection is solid. This happens when I am playing music online or talking on Skype, so I know it isn't the connection. This is happening in both Chrome and Internet Explorer.
Here is what I have done:
1) Reset ALL caches.
2) Scanned with Malware Bytes
3) Scanned with Windows Defender
4) Scanned with CleanUp!
5) I tried running a system restore, but it said that it couldn't complete restore successfully, because the disk might be corrupted. It suggested a chkdsk /r
6) I ran chkdsk /r and it said that no errors were detected.
I'm at a loss. I am travel writer and rely on my computer to run my site, do research, and keep in touch with loved ones. I can't even access my own site. I am in a country right now where there are no techs who are trained in Windows 8, so any help would be GREATLY appreciated.
