    There are two primary tests for network, then we start suspecting the browsers

    Get a command prompt (Start->Search enter CMD and hit enter)

    1. ping 8.8.8.8 tests if your system can get past your isp. should not have timeouts
    2. nslookup 8.8.8.8 tests to see if your DNS is operating properly
    So what to you see from these two?

    I get that done when I am finished eating just to make something clear I uninstalled Google Chrome, so I don't have it anymore and The only browser I have is Internet Explorer, which crashes on startup, so I won't be able to connect to the Internet, but my Internet is working properly also my programs. That require the Internet does not work.

    Those two tests do not require ANY browser and predict the success of ALL browsers. If they don't work, then no browser will either.

    OK !!! The foundation of Internet (Tcp/Ip) is just fine on your system. Now you need a good browser.

    Get a thumbdrive and visit a friend with the intent of bringing home a browser installer.
    You need to know
    1. which version of Windows you are running
    2. and if it's 32bit or 64bit
    both are shown My Computer->right.click->properties
    go here: https://www.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/ and get the version you need.
    download (make sure it's finished downloading) and then drag to your thumbdrive
    and be sure to close the window showing the contents

    Properly EJECT it, you get the prompt Safe to Remove: do so, take home and install it.

    Good choices - - make sure the DL is complete, the file may show ~dup with PART in the name.
    Until xPARTy disappears, the DL is not done.

    That's hogwash. We need to make the system see that you are installing both for the first time.
    (Make sure you have a browser that is still operating - - but I recall, IE crashes and these two are both in trouble. so we do what we have to do).

    Login as the Admin, go to the Control Panel, then Program & Features.
    scroll and uninstall BOTH firefox and Google Chrome.

    " That my download Got interrupted" hmm, you're not waiting for the download to complete. It's several megabytes and will take a minute or two. In the Downloads folder, use the Details view and it should show a large file
    • Firefox Setup 44.0.2.exe 43,949kb (this is the x64 version)
    Make sure you download the correct version for your computer, not the version for the system you are using to get the download

    You need to get a person will experience to get their hands on the system keyboard. This is solvable but in in this fashion, sorry.

    I don't want to discourage you, but you don't have the background to resolve this with remote help, at least not from me - - sorry.
