  1. My aunt has a laptop with windows 7 ,It won't download anything or update. Websites look weird with no pictures on some . Some download buttons she can click but it says there is a connection problem ,Others she can't click at all.It has windows security ess. and that's all. I tried several times to download malwarebytes but can't. I'm trying to help her but I can't tell if it has a virus or not?

    I tried to download chrome but I couldn't . It doesn't have anything other than explorer installed.
