95 percent of websites won't open ERR_CONNECTION_CLOSED

2015-04-23, 10:24 AM

 

 
Hello possible life saver,

I purchased a new Lenovo Z50-70 computer yesterday and installed chrome and AVG and every website was working fine.
The next day I went on facebook and youtube as normal, then I followed a typical facebook news feed link but it didn't load and said that the website might be temporarily down or moved to a new permanent address with the error message ERR_CONNECTION_CLOSED. I thought it might be just that one link but everything else i tried to go on failed as well with the above error message.
I learnt about Superfish shortly after and unistalled it using the ad or remove programs, I went into certificates to remove anything superfishcious but couldn't see anything.

I've done full scans on both mcaffee and AVG with nothing found. I tried getting malwarebytes as well (as a precaution) but the bloody website won't open now either (the possible irony).
I've reinstalled chrome, checked for odd extensions, reset the settings and still most websites won't work.
I even brought myself to actually use IE (feel so dirty now) but that's actually having the same thing happen which might be normal for IE anyway ;) . I don't care for using IE so for me it's basically an issue that I'd like to resolve for chrome.

The only websites I have reached succesfully now are facebook youtube and google (Haven't tried other social media websites so they may or may not work). Google however has become practically useless as every link has the above error.

(I am using wifi not cable)

If anyone has had this issue and got through it please bless me with your superior knowledge.

Much love.
Typical Internet User

Hi Solid_Cruver,

 

Thanks for your repsonse, I did something else before seeing your response which might have been a temporary fix, I'll find out tonight I guess.

 

I opened in safe mode and under pc settings did system recovery, after waiting a while for everything to refresh and restarting the computer all was working fine, I quickly removed superfish again, this time through the lenovo's site tool (rather than add/remove programs) which was now accesible after refresh and installed malwarebytes. After doing a full scan it found 4 potentially unwanted programs (something something discovery) which I removed just in case.

 

I was using chrome again til late last night without issue so hopefully nothing changes whilst I'm not using it which seems to have been the case yesterday.

 

I'll be back in touch should things go haywire again but otherwise the above can be taken as a solution for browser issues on a brand new Lenovo  Z50-70.

 

Kind Regards
