I have suddenly lost the ability to access the Internet even though Network Connections shows an active connection with a good IP address. I have even tried Safe Mode with Networking with no success. I ran windows diagnostics which told me  that I have problems with HTTP port(80)  HTTPS port (443) and FTP port 21. When I ran internet security I found that I have many viruses but the worst seems to be something called Spyware.Browser.Death. I ran a scan with my anti virus, superantispyware and Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware 1.36 but I can't update any of them because I can't access the Internet. I also ran hijackthis that found several nasty entries that I deleted but still no access to the Internet. Any suggestions? Have you heard of this Spyware.Browser.Death problem?

Thank you!!

Did you clean everything that was found from Malware Bytes (even though you can't update it?)
Sounds like your LSP stack is corrupt. Try this:
