System Restore perhaps?

Zone Alarm?

Zone Alarm?

I'm extremely desperate, so i did try system restore it gave me the option of other dates but i tried dec 1st....the laptop then did a few things, it shut down, and then started up again....and then it said system restore was unsucessfull. so i guess that did not work then. Any other suggestions pls?? Aslo i dont use zone alarm as kaspersky has its own firewall. I desperately need to sort this out very soon pls!!!!!!

Try this in IE, go to Tools> Internet Options> Advanced Tab and click on "Reset" at the bottom see if that changes your connectivity for IE
