    Did you have a chance to run steps from my previous reply, especially step 1 before your problem reappeared?

    I am going to get a Ethernet cable that will reach the PC from the router... Maybe it's the wireless USB ...

    Restarted desktop PC without the Bellini wireless USB adapter... Avast gave me a notice that I could have a malicious object and I should run a boot time scan....

    So you can connect while hardwired?

    Go ahead with Avast.

    I can't connect yet without the cable... I just was troubleshooting to see if computer would work without crashing, unconnected to Internet... Avast popped up when I restarted .... I will do the reboot scan now
