Cant get onto windows website/cant run in safe mod

  petermcconaghie 13:28 06 Nov 2010

Hi, I am having trouble getting onto several websites.
I think I have some sort of virus it won’t let me onto windows or sites that sell antivirus software It seems it doesn’t want me to update my computer.

I don’t know if this problem is related but when I go to Google and search for something when the link comes up I click on it however the Google page just refreshes and nothing happens. This only happens on when using Mozilla.

My first problem happens when using both IE and Mozilla

My computer will not run in safe mode for some reason. When I try to do this I get a blank screen and nothing happens I then have to turn it off.

Any help with these matters would be appreciated
currently I have run avast security scan and nothing has been detected.

What Firewall do you use,maybe turn it off and see if things improve.
If no sign of any virus's maybe a system restore to when it was working Ok.
