I think my laptop may have been attacked as it suddenly has stopped me going on to any shered site like facebook. It just says site not avaliable. I have checked my internet options and my LAN settings but it wont have it. Any thoughts???

Sounds like an MTU problem; click here

Run a full antivirus scan and the same with an antispyware app (or two) too. AVG or Superantispyware recommended. click here

I had the same problem and just installed Mozilla Firefox instead of internet explorer. Worked for me.

Please start your own thread, most likely to get an answer if you use the Networking forum.

Tried the MTU, AVG and spyware, no joy. Mozilla will not start up. I think the virus is a microsoft one called 800072efd, any other thoughts? Thank you in advance
