Win XP SP2
IE 6
Comcast.Net Broadband connection
McAfee anti-virus and firewall

When I start IE it works fine for about ten minutes. I can open multiple browser windows and surf the web without issue. After ten minutes I get "The page cannot be displayed" error message. Restarting IE doesn't fix the problem. I know it's not a network connectivity issue because I can still do Ping, Tracert, etc but IE will give me that error message. IE works after a reboot but only for about ten minutes before the problem starts again. Did notice though that the problem goes away when I start up in Safe Mode with Networking Support. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Try doing a scan with Adaware and Spybot Search & Destroy (you can find them listed here, under Spyware Removal. Download, install, run, and let them cleanup whatever they find.

Then you might want to have a look at your Browser Helper Objects. (In IE click Tools -> Manage Addons)
Disable anything you dont recognize or anything you don't think you'll need.
