Hello, my name is Joseph Rothchild and I do programming, animation, graphic/web design, and audio/video production. I also do advertising online and I contracted some adware, so I used WebRoot Internet Security and cleaned up my laptop. My laptop runs Windows 7, it is a Dell Ispiron, and it runs the internet off of a Arris Router through time warner cable.
Once I ran WebRoot, it restarted my computer suddenly. When it finished restarting, it came back on saying that Windows had recovered from an unexpected shutdown. When I went to go back to work all my browsers said that they were Unable to Connect to Proxy Server. My router is fine and working (that is how I am on my desktop right now) and it says that it is connected.
I have tried going to command and running:
netsh winsock reset ENTER
Restart the computer, still not working.
Disabled my adapter, removed all the networks.
Enabled adapter, reconnected to my router.
netsh activate ipv4 (and v6)
I dumped the DNS
NOTHING WORKS! I have tried ALL OF THIS MULTIPLE TIMES and in different combinations. Nothing has worked and I do not know why. I have reset my router, I tried hooking it up via ethernet and to no avail.
Can someone please help? My laptop is my well being. It is how I take care of my family and I have a project due tomorrow. Thank you for your time and consideration.
