    Internet connected. Browsers don't work


    Hello. I've tried everything I can think of, plus many recommendations online. For some reason, my desktop broadcasts, chrome Firefox and ie, will not open any webpages.

    What is the first step i should take?

    Check on the modem is there is any indication that the connect to your ISP is good.

    Look for the internet icon on the bottom taskbar and then click to "Open Network and Sharing Center".
    If the connection from modem to ISP is good, meaning is that if cross is red, it is not connected.
    If connection good, you may need to do run a antivirus.

    There is also a probably a malware have prevent you for to surf.

    InternetOk, internet is connected via wifi. My laptop works continuously.

    Ran my avast scan, no bugs.

    Ran malware bytes no bugs.

    Ran spy bot no bugs.

    Chrome and Firefox will not work. IE works occasionally but chrome is my main browser. I uninstalled all 3 before running scans and then reinstalled all three.

    Same problem

    When I click on chrome:

    It takes several seconds longer to open. It opens, but screen is white. nothing happens for about a minute, then a second small window appears in the desktop bar alongside the chrome tab. the heading of that window says Page Unresponsive. I am unable to open this window. I can open the chrome window, but it remains white. Nothing will happen, even after left sitting for an hour.

    inihen I click Firefox:

    Nothing at all happens!

    When I click IE:

    nothing at all happens, although every now it will pop up several minutes after I initiated it.

    My laptop chrome, etc. work just fine. this is very strange, i've never encountered such an issue.

    Maybe try this.

    Disconnect the internet on both LAN and wireless.

    Reboot.

    Check the internet is still no connection.

    Open each browser at a time.

    This is to ensure that the browser is working or not.

    The best is setting to open blank.

    If browser is working, then the internet setting may not be correct.

    Disconnected internet, opened chrome and Firefox. Browsers opened immediately. Looks like they aren't the problem.
    I also went to CMD and typed /release and renew, but don't know how to change DNS.
