I came back from my parent's house to find that I can no longer connect to certain websites. These include eBay, Yahoo! mail, youtube, and various other sites. I have no added any new programs or anything like that.

AMD Dual Core 5200+
Windows Vista
Buckeye Cable (cable internet)

Here is what I have done so far:

- Cleared my cookies, cache, history, TIF, etc. No good.

-Ran AVG, Spybot. Found a few problems but nothing major.

-Ran HiJackThis. Deleted anything that was neutral or unsafe (log later down).

-Ran something through https://www.grc.com/x/ne.dll?bh0bkyd2: Results:

GRC Port Authority Report created on UTC: 2008-09-08 at 16:46:20

Results from scan of ports: 0, 21-23, 25, 79, 80, 110, 113,
119, 135, 139, 143, 389, 443, 445,
1002, 1024-1030, 1720, 5000

0 Ports Open
0 Ports Closed
26 Ports Stealth
26 Ports Tested

ALL PORTS tested were found to be: STEALTH.

TruStealth: PASSED - ALL tested ports were STEALTH,
- NO unsolicited packets were received,
- NO Ping reply (ICMP Echo) was received.

File Sharing:

Internet port 139 not detected

Unable to connect to NetBIOS

-Reset modem multiple times. No luck.

- Posted HiJackThis log on another site, no problems.

- Shut off AVG, no help.

- Deleted AVG, no help.

- Shut off Windows Firewall, no help.

- Doesn't work in Firefox, IE, or Google Chrome.

Any ideas on what to try next?

I hope that was enough information to get started.


Here's a new development.

If I run through a proxy site, everything works fine.
