Is big brother watching??!

Visible to anyone in the world

A strange thing is going on with my computer and i just wonder if anyone else has had something similar.  An 'unidentified network' keeps blocking my internet access and i can't get online, i can't get into this network and i have no idea who or what it is.  Has anyone else experienced anything like this?  The funny thing is, i am political and subscribe to various political sites but this thing appeared the same week i posted a piece on Facebook about attending a night in support of Palestine (this was a night of entertainment with a political slant, nothing too radical)  Ironically, it was organised by an Israeli guy i know, and his friend who is from Palestine.. am i being paranoid ??  Anyone any suggestions??

Next time it happens, right click on the task bar and select Start Task Manager. Then click on the Processes tab and see what is running, it may give you a clue.

Can't remember whether ours did that, but we did have one that jammed the computer by running up the cpu usage to 100%. (No internet, no word) task manager helped, deleting recently installed programmes and running malwarebytes/stinger also helped. I also checked internet tools and extensions to ensure nothing lurked there.
