What internet security software are you running? and what websites are you being blocked from?

There are any number of ways your access may be blocked. Firstly at your PC by whatever internet security software/antivirus suite is running., Secondly, if you access the net via a router certain filters can be applied to the router to block certain sites & thirdly, in certain countries and jurisdictions access to some types of content is blocked by government regulation. Whether there is anything you can/should do about it depends on what type of blocking is going on and whether you have admin rights on your PC to adjust the security settings.

There's also fourth Content Advisor or Parental Controls
And Fifth Hosts file, or even adblock software ect

Here's a far fetched one Domain Server Network, but basically network settings.

One way to eliminate all these restrictions (well most of them) is to start your computer in Safe Mode With Networking
Accessed by pressing F8 before Windows starts to load
If Safe Mode With Networking, allows the website to load then its not your Internet Service Provider

You could start by disabling any Internet Security program as stated above

"it also tells me that i need to registar my security system"
What is the name of this "security system"?

I believe that it is AVG. that keeps blocking it. How do i do that F8 thing? while my computer is loading?

F8 is pressed before Windows starts to load

But I have another option (you might want to take - Note: I would)

Uninstall AVG
Then run the AVG Remover Tool: http://www.avg.com/filedir/util/sup...
Then Restart

Then download and install Free Avira Antivirus: http://www.free-av.com/en/download/...
Install; Update and run a full scan

Also your sites will likely load now

I suspect you are infected, if you are still having problems, try this.

Remove Fake Antivirus

I agree with John. I also see no reason to uninstall AVG; the problem likely lies with the program that wants you to register your security system.

After running Remove Fake Antivirus, use another free program, which is one of the best for checking/cleaning up infections.

Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware

http://www.softpedia.com/progScreen...
http://www.malwarebytes.org/mbam.php

If it won't run, rename the downloaded mbam-setup.exe file to mb.exe to help work around certain malware that will block it from being run.
If it still will not run.
1: Go to Control Panel > Programs and Features and uninstall Malwarebytes.
Next redownload Malwarebytes but rename it before you download it to your desktop. As you are in the process of downloading when you get to the point that the "enter name of file to save to" box appears, in the "filename" slot, rename mbam-setup.exe to something.exe, then click Save.
If it installed but will not run navigate to this folder:
2: C:\Programs Files\Malwarebytes' AntiMalware
At the top of the page, Tools > Folder Options > View, click > Show hidden files and folders and untick > Hide extensions for known file types.
Rename all the .exe files in the Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware folder and try to run it again.
When it opens, update 1st.
If it won't update after installing, update manually.

Download & install.

AVG can cause this issue
And if its AVG Internet Security it may be asking to be activated (ie not confirmed rogue yet)

But you gave me a -1 anyway (?)
Lets hope you luckily get it right, otherwise does that mean I should -1 all other support replies?
Seems to me we should follow what is stated only

Seems a valid question, since no one knows if the member has malware anything installed at this point !!!


@Misty -Skye
Did you uninstall AVG?
