    Do I have a virus?
    « on: July 12, 2018, 07:17:25 PM »
    My computer wont load some web pages. It had this problem once when I first moved it from my office to the house: I ended up getting it to work by disabling the internet connection, then reconnecting, but now its doing it again. I am connected via Ethernet. The problem is most web pages wont load, and downloads wont activate. I just get a web page saying "site could not be reached" it happens on both IE and Chrome. I was trying to download Itunes; the download page loaded, but no download was started. Another problem is that my spotify, blizzard, and MTGO account will not go online. blizzard says "cannot reach server". I have tried multiple things I see online, but nothing has worked. Someone in the general chat here said I should post here because I might have a virus/malware.

    I will move this thread to the Networking forum. If they can't help you they should move this back to Malware forum but it doesn't sound like an infection problem
