    I got a rogue program called Antivirus Software Alert, It wouldn't let me open ANY application, program, etc, I couldn't even go to the options, I got rid of it using Malwarebytes while in safe mode; now my computer can't seem to connect to the internet, I check the status and it says its connected to my wireless adapter and it also has an excellent signal but I can't use the web.

    Avast just downloaded uppdates and so did Malwarebytes but my antispyware, browser, itunes, can't. My other PC and laptop can connect to the internet as well as my PS3 but this laptop is the only one that can't.

    I click on my network connections and it says
    Wireless network connection
    Connected, Firewalled
    Atheros AR5007EG Wireless Network
