Maybe a system restore to before the software was installed.

tried that and nbuthing happened, i even installed firefox again and ie 7, nuthing works, i took it to a pc shop ( pcworld ) they said it would have to be reformatted because there is something that messed with kernals or something, just need a site to get round the blocks then ill be fine.

How does it work? If via hosts file blocking, do a search for a file called "hosts" - no extension.

Right click on it and rename to hosts.old

Reboot and see if that helps.
