I realize I repeat a former post here (topic160422), but since there's no answer yet, I thought it wouldn't be too bad an idea to describe my similar problem.

I run Vista on my laptop. Since a couple of weeks, I can use internet for a couple of hours, after which it simply doesn't load the websites any more. After typing an address, the message bar gives a black clock and says it's waiting for the website to reply. However, nothing's happening. The problem is the same for IE7 and firefox (2, I thought). All the other programs using internet (skype, outlook) have no problems. The only way to get internet running again, is by switching off the laptop by the power button, since the normal shutting down via start doesn't respond.

I've tried to solve the problem, by running a set of virus (avast, NOD32) and adware scanners (hitmanpro package; including ad-aware, spybot, spysweeper, spyware docter, ewido, CWShredder), but it hasn't changed anything.

If anyone has a clue what's going on here, thanks very much!!

Hello kittyspagitty and welcome to BC.

Have you tried cleaning out the temp files? http://www.atribune.org/index.php?option=c...5&Itemid=25 might be of some use.

Also, while hitman does offer a good selection of tools I think it must be out of date. The last I heard, ewido was bought out by AVG.
