Sorry I posted this in the wrong forum earlier.  I missed this one.

My computer is Windows 7 Professional.   It's almost three years old, and I haven't had any trouble on it until recently.


Despite my internet being connected tonight, I found there were websites I could not access.  In fact I couldn't access any of them.  Eventually I was able to access google, and then later a couple of other sites, but never too many at a time.  Then more websites started to work, but others wouldn't work.  I called my ISP, but they weren't able to detect a problem.  

I put my computer in safe mode and was able to come here for help.  I've done a malwarebytes scan, but nothing came up.  For some reason this also seemed to effect my PS3 (connected wirelessly to my modem)

I'm at my wits end, and have no idea what to do.  Help would be much appreciated. I'm not sure if this is malware related or not.  My ISP seemed to think it could be a problem with the system, though I'm now able to access this forum and any other website without problem without being in safe mode.  I'd think that if my PS3 had trouble connecting, that it wouldn't be malware, but I'm not as computer savvy as I'd like to be.  (I'm not computer incompetent either thanks to working with computers for most of my life)

Have you tried resetting your router/...?


This is usually achieved by inserting a paperclip into a tiny hole located on the router.....google your router model number to determine exactly where it is.


Press the paperclip end in and hold it in for approx 20 seconds...then release it and wait for the router to boot back up again


Note Be sure  you have the password for your internet a/c/router BEFORE you start.
