    This is a VERY weird issue and lll PayPal anybody $10 that solves.

    So, a couple days ago I was playing games on my computer and force-shut down my PC since I couldn’t get the game to close. The following day I open my computer and open Chrome and the only websites I can access are YouTube, Google Search Pages, some Google websites, and that’s it. Should also be noted that when I use YouTube the videos won’t play, just load the whole time meanwhile everything else on the page loads.

    After this, I tried opening Discord and other applications such as Skype to see if they would work but they also couldn’t “access” the internet.

    Summary: My computer is connected to the Internet but no programs can “access” or “use” it it seems (including internet browsers, so can’t even search the web).

    I have tried countless of ways to fix this but can’t find a solution. Any help?
