    Thanks, now the Internet is better again. I'll try this for a couple of times, then reinstall Norton and if it continues I'll just have something else instead. Thanks for the help again!

    Well the Internet is down again. I tried the usb wifi again and it didn't help. The connector works with other computers so it's not fried. I do t get why the Wifi keeps disconnecting...all the other computers are just fine, so it must be something with win10 but I don't know what. I'm thinking of reinstalling Windows but this time doing a whole sweep so there's no photos etc. left on the computer, but I need to buy an another external hardrive for that. Any tips?

    Thanks, okay. I'll try reinstalling Windows again if it helps, tomorrow, if I find an external hard drive. I have one but I used it with my old iMac and my current laptop tried to clean all my previous photos from the hard drive off. I do t know why it does that but can't risk having years of photos being wiped away just because this computer can't handle it. I'm also considering taking this to the repairs but that will take 6 weeks and it's December so 8 weeks at minimum so it's not very alluring option.

    New update problem!

    I just updated to the new windows 10 update where it adjusts wifi settings. Instead of saying connected or disconnected under the wifi name now it says "no internet, secured" it only says no internet at school on the schools wifi (works fine at home) The school wifi needs a username and password... Anyone know whats wrong?

    It means if you want to use the school internet you will have to see if they will give you the code which could be username and password as their Wi-Fi is locked.
    If they wont give it to you then there is nothing you can do except perhaps get a dongle and use it that way.
    My one at home is secured to stop others from using it and all passwords are entered on all our systems so they can connect.

    My wifi actually says that too. No internet connection, secured. Yellow question mark thing on the wifi sign.

    Normally a yellow triangle which means you have limited connection.
    If you have signed in and you are still getting it check your router to make sure all lights are green.
    It could be to do with who you get your internet from they could be having trouble with their line.
    Also check to make sure your drivers are up to date

    Okay, I've now updated drivers, none of the wifi related drivers needed updating though. now it says that one or more web protocols are missing? It also says its unable to fix the problem.
