Hi all, this is my first time posting. I have a problem with my internet.. every site I try to go to comes up as "page cannot be displayed". I use a dsl connection and know that it is working because I can play online multiplayer games. The weird part about this is, whenever I disable my dsl and than enable it, I can browse the internet for a few minutes before everything starts coming up as "page cannot be displayed". I thought it might be internet explorer, so I downloaded (within the 2 minute window of disabling/enabling, even though I cant browse the internet, downloads will still download) firefox but a similar thing happens. After a few minutes of browsing, pages just wont load and stay pure white. I have microsoft anti-spyware beta and had (just unistalled it a few days ago) avast anti-virus protection. I have no idea whats wrong, except the obvious, its probably spyware, which I'm not sure where I would have gotton it since I only check a few game forums and email people. Everything use to run fine and than this just started happening. This isnt a huge problem because I am mainly gamer and not an internet browser, but I would like to be able to check my email and go to webpages every once in awhile without having to disable+enable my dsl connection every few minutes.

Create a directory on your hardrive to save HijackThis.exe. A directory like c:\hijackthis. If you do not do this, you will not be able to use the backup/restore features.

Download HijackThis from:

HijackThis Download Site

Save this file into the directory you made previously and then run the program named hijackthis.exe. When the program opens click on the Config button, then click on the Misc Tools button, and click on the Check for update online button. When it completes checking/applying updates press the back button.

Now click on the Scan button and when it is finished click on the Save Log button. A Notepad window will open with the contents of this log. Click on Edit then click on Select all. Then click on Edit and then Click on Copy.
