cannot connect to internet

Post by uniontractor » Wed Feb 27, 2019 3:14 pm

My pc will not connect to internet but my laptop will both are windows 7 and are hooked to the same dsl modem. When I click on my browsers both google chrome and opera light up momentarily on my pc but then go back to their usual appearance in the system tray below.
I ran system restore to an earlier date but no help. It will not connect to the internet and my other files work properly. Any ideas on how to connect to the net with my pc?
I ran Avast Free anti virus scan but all it did was ask me to upgrade to paid version. Is there any free antivirus that works?

I used another browser, Kameleon, and it made me update and download Google Chrome and now it works! I guess somehow the Chrome browser and the Opera browser needed to be renewed. So now I am back in business!
Using system restore might have helped since it seems to run faster now also.
