    Hi, thanks for the reply. I chose ‘Safe mode with Networking’ and I can access the internet. In normal mode I cannot access the internet.

    Safe Mode also loads absolutely the minimum services required by MS (I recall there's five-six). S.M. also stops all Startup programs. The latter is where we typically find malware.

    You can use cmd->MSCONFIG to change the way your system boots and be able to restore to normal operations easily

    you need the admin password:
    Under the General Tab, click Selective Startup, deselect Load startup items
    click Apply and then reboot.

    If you then have a sane system with browser access to say Google,
    then you know the issue is within the Startups on your pc - - report this in a new post in the Virus Removal forum
