Hey there audreylee24, welcome to Geeks To Go Support Forums.

Have you loaded any programs that could conflict with the internet. Are you running a firewall and are you sure there is no updates running in on the backround for your anti-virus or other programs.

Try disableing your firewall and let me know what happends, also answer the other questions. This maybe malware related.

Sorry, also what browser are you using? Try downloading and installing a different one and let me know if that works any diffferent.

Cool :whistling:

Hey there again audreylee24.

Ok, download Firefox and try see if there is a difference.

http://www.mozilla.com/firefox/

No updates running in on the backround for your anti-virus or other programs.

What I mean by this is "Are there any updates taking place???" (But... You dont have to worry about this step)

is it safe to turn the firewall off

For now it is, just try disable it to see if there is any difference and then re-enable it.

Cool :whistling:
