>safe mode

Isn't that for compatibility issues, like when you have serious malware? I can see why this wouldn't do anything for him.

Safe mode turns everything off and loads only basic drivers.
So if you do with networking then load up your browser, it'll tell us if it's a program being run or if it's hijacked your browser completely.

If you're running Chrome, it sounds like you just installed a dodgy extension. I get that a lot. Go check what extensions you have installed: there may be a equivalent for other browsers.

Open to questions, but if you're curious start there rather than expecting me to explain it all from scratch every time.

I am confused.  You live in Alabama or some shit.  I am in Canada.  Isn't that really out of the way?
