Internet pages won't load

Basically, I can't connect to the Internet, it has nothing to do with the router as my sister computer and my iPhone can connect to it, and the computer shows its connected! Without any problems wireless or Ethernet but when I open chrome or IE the page takes 10 minutes to load nothing! And then the Cannot connect to the Internet message appears? The first day it happened it resolved by restarting, the next day it resolved spontaneous 2x in a three hour period, now it's permanently not loading anything!
I've done a scan with defender and mSR

Check to ensure your not working off-line;

Depending on version; IE go to Tools | Work Off Line


Then reset IE to defaults;

Tools | Internet Options | Reset to defaults


Turn Firewall off, reboot, turn Firewall back on

you can also do a system restore to a restore point just prior to the problem and see if it helps. Did you add anything new to the computer recently?
