    Programs saying check internet connection when internet is working fine.

    I've been having this problem for awhile now. I open programs such as Itunes, Bit torrent, even DVD's with internet extra's and they all pop up with check to see if you are connected to the internet. My internet is working fine. I can Google up a storm no problem. I have Windows Firewall on however all of these programs are allowed thru so it's not that. I have no Proxy settings in Firefox. Any ideas? Please?

    Hello, if it were me seeing that on my computer , I would update and run full scan of Malwarebytes Antimalware, and also SuperAntiSpyware , and see if I had any spyware or malware , I would also run my Anti Virus program. You can get Malwarebytes and SuperAntiSpyware free.

    I use AVG free edition and it's not coming up with anything. Are these other programs better?

    Most in the know use Microsoft Security Essentials and the free Malwarebytes for a weekly scan.
    Its a matter of opinion, as to what is best, but MSE does not cause problems while others have caused BSODs freezing etc. As an added protection, as well as for other uses, WinPatrol can and should be used. It warns of any changes, authoriized or not. However, that would be for future problems
