Hi! I'm coming here with a little confusion as to what has happened to my laptop. It continues to have connection to my wi-fi, but when I open Google Chrome or IE, no webpages will load. For example, Chrome will simply display "Unable To Access The Network". I know that my wi-fi/router is working fine because my other devices (such as the one I'm submitting this on) is connected to the internet and works fine. I ran a Malwarebytes scan on it but it came back with nothing found (however, the latest update was from 90 days ago, and it cannot retrieve updates now).
I read some things regarding similar issues and some seem to stem for a forced change in proxy settings. This is simply a guess, however, and I wouldn't know how to change/fix it anyway. Something of note that may or may not be related - about a month ago, my Dropbox stopped syncing and when you hover the mouse over the icon in the tray, it perpetually says "connecting", but it never actually does. That was the only issue I was having and couldn't figure out how to fix it. Now my internet browsers are having their problems, and I'm not sure if it's all caused by the same thing. I can't think of any installations I've done in the last month that would have changed anything.
If you could get back to me when you get a chance, that would be great! Thank you so much!
