No internet connection after running Malwarebytes (newbie)

Recommended Posts

Hi, I did some Google searching after experiencing this issue which led me to these forums, where I saw many users suffering from the same problem. 


I'm running a brand new (2 weeks old) PC running Windows 10. I saw a couple of videos and recommendations of Malwarebytes and decided to install it. After performing the first scan (I wasn't trying to get rid of any particular malware, just looking to see if it found anything), it found a couple of malware, I clicked remove. 


Minutes later, I tried to use the internet (I use Chrome), and I cannot connect to any web site. It won't load anything. I'm currently typing this from my Macbook Pro and I'm just looking for some help because it's driving me crazy.


Now I'm just looking for help on how to fix my internet.


P.S. I haven't owned a Windows PC in years (since the XP days) so I can barely make my way around technical system settings. Please go easy on me. :)
