that works, but it doesn't explain why it happened
It happened because the software you removed is useless garbage, like all commercial "security" software for the Mac platform. If you want a more detailed explanation, you'll have to ask the developer. If your system is working now, you most certailnly do not need to reinstall the OS or do anything else at all, except to refrain from installing any more garbage software.

I believe, Linc, that your near-rabid bias against anti-virus software in all forms is getting in the way here. Unless you have a theory that explains why multiple different anti-virus programs all are causing exactly the same unusual failure?
Lol this is kinda funny, i blame it on my school, they forced me to reimage my mac just to use the internet, the reimage *****, they are noobs at tech, since they denied access to a admin to the prefs pane sharing and somehow forced my default account images to not work, there are also other issues, which ill consider reinstalling my mac completly when i get a new HD.

I started having the same problem. Most websites would not load. I have Sophos installed, so when I saw the suggestion to delete antivirus I looked at Sophos. But, instead of removing it, I went to prefs and turned off Web Protection. The websites work like before. I had Sophos on prior to the web page problem, however, perhaps a Sophos or Apple update caused the problem?
