Continuing connection problem

Following answers to a recent post I thought I had rectified things but they now seem to be no better again. I use Firefox as my browser and have also tried to connect using Internet explorer but the results are the same. My internet connection indicator states that I am connected with a speed of 54Mbps with signal strength excellent. Strangely enough I can connect to my email and bank account from the bookmarks but nothing else. The addresses come up in my browser address line, but are greyed out. The same occurs when I manually enter an address manually and when I press enter nothing happens. When I go into either browser I only get a blank page. I should have said that the problems are with my lap top running Windows XP Media edition. Could this be a recistry or hardware problem I would greatly appreciate any help. Regards Carper

Hi, I have run an antivirus check with a full system scan with Avast, but I will try yours. Carper
