So I’m not the most tech savvy, but I know not to download suspicious files. That is until I was tricked into downloading something I thought was the Adobe software a good portion of the internet still uses… Foolishly I did so and in a panic to rid the malware off my Mac, I must have screwed something up with the internet. Now a days I can’t connect to the internet without a VPN, but recently due to the program needing an upgrade my Mac is stuck in a limbo. When checking out the system settings it shows that I’m connected to the internet, but none of browsers connect. I’m begging for some help, if any!! What is going on and how can I fix it? I’d be more than willing to update this thread with pictures if folks need to see what’s going on with my computer. Thanks so much!

First, try running Disk Utilities...See if that works
