    Losing connection to Internet can

    Windows 8 has suddenly started on certain sites not responding. I can click on google and get "This page can't be displayed" tried all the choices on that, no go. If I get favouritesto respond I get " waiting for whichever site" then the message internet not responding etc. I can click on another site and get it . The signal is good hubby sitting next-to me his Win 7 is fine and my ipads are fine. Tried all sorts of things, went into Internet Options box tried all sorts last thing was Advanced and reset. Thought it had, worked did for some bu still doing the same. Expect it is something quite simple if you know what. Does anyone know

    Are you running any kind of Internet Security Software? You can try a reset of the Network device, by going to Publisher page for Farbar Download MiniToolBox and Service Scanner. That should fix it, as long as your computer is not infected. To make sure that your computer has no infections, you can follow the instructions at READ & RUN ME FIRST Malware Removal Guide (incl. spyware, virus, trojan, hijacker) - MajorGeeks Support Forums
