My computer will not connect to the internet.
I start internet explorer (or firefox) and it says "opening google.com" which is my homepage. However, it never opens. (This happens for every web page, not just google.)
This started last night, after changing my windows "user name" and my computer name. I saved a reference point for my registry after I changed my user name (I did this in the registry). However, I can't import this saved registry, probably 1) because I don't know what I'm doing and 2) I get an error message that says some part of it is being used by a person or process.
Everything else on my computer is working great. This is the only thing that's wrong.
Is there any way I can fix my internet connection without doing anything major in the registry? Does anyone know what is wrong, and can anyone help?
Thank you so much.
PS: Could an anti-spyware program be preventing me from accessing the internet?
