Question

problem

Hey, hopefully someone can answer this for me..every once in a while ( I can't really put a time on it, it seems random ) my new computer wont load any websites or games..it just loads for about 5 minutes or until I force close the program. When I open Chrome, I see my frequently visited pages but when I try to go to any page at all it will not load. All the rest of the time the computer runs great..Also the internet stays connected the entire time.

My computer specs are:

Intel Core™ i7-4790K Processor
NVIDIA GeForce GTX 960 - 2GB
8 GB [4 GB x2] DDR3-1600
120GB Kingston V300 SSD + 1TB 7200RPM HARD DRIVE
ASUS Z97-K -- 2x PCIe x16, 4x USB 3.0, 2x USB 2.0

Sounds like malware - here's what I'd do.

In reply to: problem

First download & install the free version of MalwareBytes and get it up to date. Then make sure your antivirus program is up to date. After that boot to Safe Mode and do full system scans with both. If that doesn't fix it, open an elevated command prompt and issue this command sfc /scannow.

Good luck.
