Whenever I try to start steam I get the following error:
"Steam needs to be online to update. Please confirm your network connection and try again."
Whenever I try to start Origin I get this:
"Online login is currently unavailable."
My computer has full access to the internet. For your information I have already searched a lot of websites looking for a solution and tried the following:
All drivers are up to date
Disabling all anti-virus/firewall
Resetting router and computer
Directly connecting to modem
Reinstalling both numerous times

I'm not a computer expert so this has definitely got me stumped! Running Windows 7 64 bit.

Thanks in advance for any help!
