To restate my problem more clearly, I am using a borrowed computer to come to this forum. My computer is working up to the desktop. It will not connect to the internet. I HAVE run all the adware/virus programs I listed above.
I am lost without my daily internet fix. Thanks!

What kind of internet connection do you have? (cable, dial up, etc.) Also have you tried opening up web pages through other browsers such as Firefox?

If that fails, too, try a System File Check
Start > Run > cmd
sfc - system file checker, retrieves the correct version of the file from %Systemroot%\System32\Dllcache or the Windows installation source files, and then replaces the incorrect file.
If you want to see what was replaced, right click My Computer > manage, expand event viewer > system.

Thank you! It sounds like you have good advice and I appreciate you!
Your first suggestion got me a screen with
scan with AVG
add to archive
add to iexplore.rar
your second suggestion got me to
after I clicked on that, the screen stayed on the desktop and my mouse could move but nothing ever happened.
the third suggestion got me a black screen with
c:\documents and settings\users with a flashing _
I tried typing in
each try got me a "not recognized as an internal or extrnal command"
Do you have any more suggestions Please? Thank you Bruce
