Tons of problems

Here is a list of my problems:

I have restored all defaults on IE.

Downloaded Firefox: get error "the connection was refused" anytime I try to access any page through it. Same thing with Opera.

MSN Explorer will not connect.

When I try to log into hotmail, I get the sign in page, but when I click log in, I get "The page you are looking for is currently unavailable." This also happens when I try to log in on e-bay.

When I try to retrieve messages on Microsoft outlook through my ISP, I get "The TCP/IP connection was unexpectedly terminated by the server.

I'm wondering if a windows restore will help these problems? Everything was fine a week ago. It just started giving me problems Friday. This is causing me a lot of problems because all of my favorites are in MSN Explorer, and all of my contacts are in hotmail. Right now I'm having to use my yahoo account which does nothing but collect tons of junk mail.

System Restore not restoring either. I would use Norton GoBack, but I didn't install that until after the problems started...

I can't run windows update or anything else that requires ActiveX. The information bar says my security settings won't allow it. I tried changing my security settings to allow ActivX and it still didn't work. I've restored my browser settings to their defaults again. Still nothing...

Another problem I'm having that I don't understand:

I have EVERYTHING that has to do with my computer except the monitor hooked up on a power strip. I know, the monitor should be too, I just ran out of space. Anyway, Whenever we turn a light on or off in our apartment, my speakers make a small pop sound.

I also seem to be having some hardware issues. Please click here to view.
