You folks have been helpful in the past (Thank you!!) so am coming to you again.   Not sure if it's virus related, or something else.   I have a PC running Win 7 that connects to the internet fine, all systems seem fine but none of the browsers 'see' an internet connection. (Chrome and IE both will not connect to any website)  My son reported when using Google Chrome that there was a pop up stating something to the affect that 'your internet connection is being controlled'.
I have reset browser settings, run Malware Bytes and AV scan no luck
Both wired and wireless connections are the same result.
I ran Rkill and did not see anything running that it could stop
I started in safe mode with Networking, still none of the browsers will connect to Internet.
I did see somewhere this could be Trovi maybe?
Thanks in advance for any assistance!

Folks -

I have solved the problem - using a couple of the programs mentioned in previous posts.   Cannot definitively say what exactly it was (think it was a registry setting), but whatever it was it is gone, and I can now access internet using any browser.
