Hello. I've beeen having this problem for 3 days now, where I can't get onto any website online at all, even the malware websites. Before I uninstalled all the malware on my computer, I used to get the message: ERR_EMPTY_RESPONSE. But after uninstalling them, I've been getting this message.
I've tried looking up online a way to resolve this and every website says that either: 1. I get a computer firewall/cleaner that really works (but I can't since I can't use the Internet on my computer at all, 2. I contact the network administrator, (but I think that is me, and I still don't know how to fix the problem), or 3. (and most popular) I go to settings on Google Chrome and under advanced settings I should go to 'change proxy settings' and untick all the boxes. However, everytime I try to do so and click 'OK', nothing happens, and then when I look at the settings again, they're back to the way they originally were, with the boxes ticked. Our computer isn't wireless, we connect the computer to our router using the yellow wire.
This is a real problem because I'm in college and need the computer for my school work, plus it is our only computer and at the moment, my only way of getting onto the Internet at all is through my phone, and I'm not really a genius with computers. Please help me find a solution to this as soon as possible. Thanks.

Hi Chris,

Your problem was caused by the virus infection and the internet setting was changed by the virus files. Before you go to repair the Internet, please make sure
to kill the virus infection file. If the virus is still on your computer, your settings will be always altered.
