This is a continuing problem that is sooo annoying.

My fiance has a good spec laptop, with vista home premium, amd dual core, 2gb ram, nvidia graphocs etc.

It works fine, for about 10 minutes, after which the web browesers stop working. Both firefox and IE. just say not connected to internet, couldnt find webpage etc.

All other internet programs work fine, MSN messenger, AVG updater etc.

Is only IE and firefox that appears to be affected.

The only way to start browsing again is to restart. Which gets very annoying.

I have scanned with AVG and Spybot and a few things were found. Funweb products being one. But nothing major that i could find and all were removed succesfully.

It appeared to start when her sister usd it and installed some emoticon pack, although i uninstalled it and cannot find any traces of it in registry etc and no other malware could be found.

It isnt her wireless netowrk as i have tried it on various different networks. All are the same.

Any help will be greatfully recieved.
