My internet explorer will lose connection to the internet randomly but my instant messaging programs like msn and aim will run fine. Internet explorer nor firefox get connection. I have ran virus scans and spyware scans and they find stuff but nothing that fixes the problem. I also am aware that p2p programs and torrents can effect internet connection in that exact way, but i have uninstalled all the ones i ahve and still the problem persists. I have checked my modem for problems, disabled remote access i used to have, and changed ip. I think i infected with some sort of malware but my scans dont ever find any. Please help it is getting to be quite an annoying situation.

Are you seeing error messages upon disconnection?

Most Internet connectivity problems arise out of corrupt Winsock settings due to the installation of a networking software or Malware infestation. Check with your ISP provider first and if they insist that your connection is coming through, the problem must be at your end.

If your using Windows XP SP2, log on as an administrator.
Go to Start / Run and type: cmd
Press Okay. A dos Window will appear.
At the command prompt, type or copy/paste: netsh winsock reset
Hit Enter.
When the program is finished, you will receive the message: "Successfully reset the Winsock Catalog." You must restart the machine in order to complete the reset."
Close the command box and reboot your computer.
Chaos reigns within.
Reflect, repent, and reboot.
Order shall return.
