This started 2 days ago, around 11 at night my firefox and IE browsers stop working, they say page cannot be displayed... but my MSN works fine meaning I am still connected to the internet... however around 3 in the afternoon the following day the browsers work fine until around 11 again.. This has been happening everyday now and I've tried many different things I just recently downloaded the WinsockFix to see if that helps but I only have 10 minutes before its happens again. I've tried scanning for viruses and spyware but found nothing. Its almost like im on an internet timer but I am the only user of this computer.

Welcome to Bleeping Computer Smeazly.

What O/S are you running?

The first thing to do when Internet Explorer is misbehaving is empty your Internet Explorer cache. Often the cache is not corrupt or damaged, it's simply too large.

Go to Tools/ Internet Options/ click the Delete Files button.
At the prompt, delete all offline content, then click OK.
Chaos reigns within.
Reflect, repent, and reboot.
Order shall return.
