This is driving me crazy. For the past couple of weeks I've been having trouble connecting to the Internet from my home computer (Windows XP Home Edition). Specifically, I boot up, logon to my parental control software (ContentProtect) and launch Firefox.

Sometimes my connection starts out fine, but then--wham!--the browser nosedives into a perpetual "transferring data" phase. In other words, it tries to connect to any site I enter and does nothing more.

Eventually, I force the browser down via the Task Manager. Even if I try Firefox again or IE after that point, it still doesn't connect. It's not until I try to reboot that after a few moments (not that quick really and before it actually reboots) that I get a pop-up asking me if I want to end the task XPCOM:EventReceiver.

What exactly is that thing and why is it giving me a headache? :thumbsup:

Other times when I try to reboot after my connection has been stuck, instead of getting the pop-up for XPCOM, it's for DSAgnt.exe or Rundll32.exe. Man, is this annoying!

I've read at other forums that this might be related to Firefox, but I don't believe it because it happens with IE, too.

Any and all help is very much appreciated! :flowers:
