Stopping firewalls and Antivirus software on such case is a real bad idea.
I think you were able to surf the internet in the past.
So why should firewall or antivirus suddenly block this.
I guess, your computer is already infected by a virus or trojan. By disabling antivirus and firewall, you open up the door for the virus or trojan to download others.
Download a bootable antivirus cd, boot from this cd, update the antivirus and scan you computer with it.
You can use this one e.g.:
Avira AntiVir Rescue System

You may also download and install Malwarebytes Anti-Malware to check your computer for viruses and trojans.

hi Paulsep

I used the virus checker from the link you posted, got a few warnings , but nothing to really worry about. Malwarebytes also found a few things which I removed. Still no webpages would load. I know I have a connection because both malwarebytes and the virus bootcd both updated from the internet. I had a look at my lan settings in internet options. I found that my machine had somehow became setup to use a proxy. I have never used this and dont know how this got set, its not something I would have done. Anyway, I told it to auto detect settings and no proxy, and hey presto it worked :)
thanks again :)

any help would be appreciated
thanx in advance

Oh yes, unless you have no proxy in your environment, it's always the best idea, to switch it from autodetect to no proxy.

Nice to hear, that it's working.
