Okay, so I am having a lot of trouble getting the internet working on my laptop. Every website I go to says 403 Forbidden Error. I can't figure out why this is happening. It happens when I connect to the internet wirelessly and when it is hooked up directly to the wall.

It seemed to happen around the time when my ISP was sold to another company and they went through a transition period, but this would just be a coincidence. Not sure.

It is also happening at work, which is not using the same ISP, so I am quite confused. Anyone have any ideas?

Thanks in advance!

Not 100% sure and I'm not a professional, but I'd suggest trying this utility:

It has saved me on more than one occasion. Also, I would ask if you have done anything to edit your HOST file. I doubt it especially since most people don't mess with it and your issue is happening in more than one location that's not with the same ISP company. The HOST file blocks many sites, which isn't a bad thing if you know what you are doing, but can be highly detrimental to those who don't understand what they are dealing with.
