I am currently running Windows Vista Home 32-bit. 3MB RAM, Core2Duo processor, etc. I am connected to cable internet through a router. There are two computers connected to the router. My wife's computer and mine as well as the Wii. She has not had any connection issues.
I will start my computer normally and be surfing the net using Firefox. After an unspecified (it varies every time) the web pages will stop loading. Sometimes this will be 5 minutes, sometimes a half hour, other times an hour. The icon will keep spinning, but they will stop loading. They never go to the "this page can not be displayed" page. I will then close Firefox. When I attempt to open the browser again, I get a message that Firefox is already running and that I need to end the process. Attempts to end the process in the task manager are unsuccessful. It won't close. Sometimes I click on IE and have the same issue, other times IE will work, but eventually stop loading pages just like Firefox. My network icon shows that I am connected to the network and the diagnose and repair feature finds no problems. I've run scans with AVG, AdAware and Spybot and they've turned up clean. I use an email client to connect to my work email and that connects to the internet without issue when Firefox and IE are not working.
The problem is always rectified with a restart of the computer.
