The first thing that comes to mind with me is a weak internet signal. Are you on wireless with weak signal range, or if you are wired in make sure your cables are tightly secured.

Let me know.

I would plug in directly to the modem or router that you are using and see if it continues. This will help us determine if its a problem on the computer, or your internet signal.

Let me know,
Sam

I know that some people here are very skilled. I have been working desktop support and theres been plenty of times where I hit my foot on a cable and wonder why somethings not working. I just have to ask as a skilled repairman I am sure you understand.

I have a feeling your going to get mad at me about this but, have you reinstalled firefox.

Can you give me some idea of the troubleshooting you have done.

http://kb.mozillazine.org/Error_loading_any_website is a list of possible fixes. Also did you recently remove any spyware or viruses. You may have damaged the Winsock LSP chain

Let me know.

Can you download http://download.bleepingcomputer.com/spyware/lspfix.zip and run it. Let me know what shows up, but do not do anything but tell me what is listed.

Looks good, I like your skin also!

Have you tried any of the suggested firefox fixes from the link I sent you earlier.

Or you could try http://winsockfix.en.softonic.com/, but I would really recommend trying some of the fixes in there knowledge base.

You tweaked the internet connection with what? If you are referring the Firefox knowledge base link I sent you could you tell me exactly what part?

I am a little confused, did PC tune up fix your issue or does the problem still exist?
