I just cant get on any page on the internet it just says server not found
There are many reasons for this. There may be parental controls active on the system, or your computer may be struggling to connect to the internet. Check your Internet Explorer settings. Click Tools on the right hand corner, select Internet Options, click on the Connections tab. At the bottom of the connections tab it should say LAN Settings. Select LAN Settings and there should be three boxes with a check option. The last one should say something along the lines of "use a proxy server". If it is checked, uncheck it. I experienced something similar to what you were experiencing. It turns out that a computer virus disguised as an Antivirus software called Antivir Pro Solutions or some variation of that, prevented my computer from accessing any websites, and eventually prevented me from opening programs. That particular virus was able to change the proxy server settings to its very own proxy server, and once I got rid of the virus using a program called Malwarebytes (awesome& very reliable program btw), the Internet Explorer settings remained on a proxy server. All I did was unchecked it and the internet returned. If you have a legitimate Antivirus software such as Mcafee or Norton by Symantec, I suggest you run a scan before anything. Some security features such as CA Security are good for somethings, but not for others. I had CA Security when I caught the virus. If you have CA, I suggest you download Malwarebytes as a secondary precaution. Anyways, I hope it's not a virus. Good Luck!
