Hello again,
when your computer ran chkdsk it found some corrupted sectors. The corrupted files may have had something to do with your being able to connect to the INTERNET.
Would you use the flash drive method I showed you to install Fire fox and give that a try?
I normally use IE but fire fox will take you less time.
Thank you
