This is my first post here so hopefully I am in the right place. A few months ago I started having an issue with Google Chrome. Any time I open the browser the google.com search engine appears but if I type something in to the search bar it instantatiously gives me the "cannot connect to the internet" error page. Same with if I try to type any other website into the browser bar. I then opened Internet Explorer and it worked just fine so I down loaded Firefox because I can't stand to run IE for longer than it takes to download a different broswer. I then did a few normal trouble shooting things at first, turning my computer off and on again, restarting the router, uninstalling chrome and reinstalling. I had a friend who is going to school for IT come over and look at it and he did a few things which I don't remember. But nothing worked. I also ran CCleaner to get rid of any malware. Just today I tried these trouble shooting steps: http://www.selectrealsecurity.com/fix-internet-connection. When I ran FarBar service scanner no missing files or errors were found...so yeah I am pretty much at a loss.
Anyone on here have this issue before or know how to fix it?
