Boinc can't access the internet, check network or proxy. Every thing was running fine then this?

Probably means that you need to revisit your firewall rules. Some firewalls have outbound rules to prevent your computer from becoming a BOT.

You need to ensure the BOINC.exe is allowed outbound on ports 80 and 443 (there are a few projects that need different ports - but these will do for almost all projects).
