Okay, this may be really long but I want to make sure I get as much info as I can into the post.
I have a HP Pavillion TouchSmart laptop that I bought from a friend. When I first purchased it a cleaned it out (IE I reset it to factory settings) After I did that I downloaded Malwarebytes and ran a full scan (I found nothing) The pc worked well initially and all was well. Lately however I am having a ton of issues.
Issue 1: Every time I try and log into internet explorer I get a notice saying Internet Explorer cannot display the web page with a button that says Launch HP Network Check.
Issue 2: When I am able to get online, once I try and go to a page (FB, Google, Yahoo etc) It takes me to page that says there is an issue with the sites security certificate. It does however give me the option to continue to the page though it warns its not recommended. When I do click that option it's hit or miss whether it actually takes me to the site.
Issue 3: Today, for example, I couldn't access the internet at all. I rebooted the computer multiple times and it finally let me access the internet though when I tried to go anywhere (Including trying to download things such as cccleaner) it boots me back to the page mentioned above regarding the security certificate, then to the page saying it cant display the web page.
Issue 4: Finally, when I do get onto the internet, once I log onto a page (fb in particular) it displays wrong (its in list view instead of actually loading as my page)
As a side note, I'm not sure if they changed the way you access safe mode on the newer pc's but I can't get it to boot in Safe Mode (F8)
If anyone out there can help I would be forever grateful. I really like the laptop but at this point the urge to throw it out the window is strong. Thank you in advance!
