I require some assistance with what I suspect is a virus.
I have an HP computer and run Windows 10 and use Google Chrome as my main browser.
Yesterday while I was using Chrome I noticed that pages stopped loading which isn't really that uncommon given that my internet isn't the fastest so I figured it was no big deal and tried refreshing but to no avail.Before this I had to turn the wifi on my computer off and then turn it back on which is when the problem started so I thought perhaps I just needed to restart my computer to see if that would do anything.
When I restarted, I couldn't get Chrome to open at all. That's happened a time or two before, where I've turned on my computer and Chrome hasn't wanted to start so I simply restart my computer entirely and then the problem's resolved but this time it just wasn't happening and worse yet it seems like my attempt to even bring Chrome up froze everything else and I had to force a restart.
When I got my computer back up and running I did a Norton scan which didn't produce anything. I did a system restore which also didn't do anything, the same problem still persisted.
I uninstalled Norton and downloaded Malwarebytes and ran a scan but it didn't find anything either. I did another system restore but still nothing. I uninstalled then reinstalled Chrome but still nothing. I downloaded BullGuard per a suggestion I'd read from other people experiencing problems with getting Chrome to open and about 80% into a full scan my computer froze again so I had to force another shut down.
When I got it back on I now can't even get Firefox to work, it keeps telling me that my connection is not secure and that the website I'm trying to access has configured their website improperly (which mind you, I'm only trying to bring up websites like Google, Yahoo, Bing, etc., not anything shady/dangerous).
I'm using Edge right now and so far we're okay but then again I had FireFox working just fine until everything suddenly froze so I don't know. I didn't even try to bring Chrome up while I was running the BullGuard scan and using FireFox so that leads me to wonder now if it isn't just a Chrome-only problem and is now instead some type of virus.
In any case, I'd greatly appreciate whatever help and assistance anyone can provide.
