Lately I started to have an issue with my laptop. (HP Pavillion g7 series) The sound would pretty much just quit. So I googled around and found that it was perhaps from a recent update from Windows 7. So I did a system restore to an earlier date. Seemed to fix the sound problem, but now Firefox won't work.
I open it and it won't go to any websites. IE works, so it's not the internet connection. Firefox tells me that it may be a firewall problem, or proxy.
I googled some more. Tried turning windows firewall off, no changes. Changed to no proxy, no changes. I even added Firefox to the list of programs to be allowed through the firewall, no changes.
Then I uninstalled firefox. NOW I can't even reinstall it. *sigh* Googled again, perhaps a malware?
I dunno any more.
