I lose my browser's connection with the internet after a few minutes of browsing. On startup both IE6
and IE7 work fine loading pages, then after a period of time that can range from 3 - 10 minutes, it stops
loading pages. Although it tries to load, after a moment or 2 I get the following message:
Internet Explorer cannot display the webpage Most likely causes: you are not connected to the internet / the
website is encountering problems / there might be a typing error in the address. What you can try:
diagnose connection problems / More information
I installed and ran Mozilla's Firefox 18.104.22.168, and it's the same story. After about 5 minutes it also
refuses to load pages.
I've updated and run Norton Antivirus, AdAware, Spybot, BitDefender 8 (and then uninstalled it), ComboFix,
SmitFraudfix, and Fixwareout, and deleted all old Java programs and installed Java Runtime Environment (JRE) 6u2.
As a result, I don't think this is a malware problem. I don't think there's anything wrong with my computer's internet connection settings, as I can browse just fine on startup. I'm running a home network on a Linksys wireless router, and none of my other computers have any problems browsing the internet, and all are running Windows XP with IE7.
Does anyone have any ideas?
