Hello all,

I am new member from Brazil at BC even though have been using help / tips from forums for a while. Hope someone could help me figure out what is wrong with my PC and fix.

I just had my computer formatted and re-installed with XP three days ago after experiencing several problems. Unfortunately, it is looking like it came back with new ones. Since the place I had my PC repaired is about 50 miles from where I live, Im trying to avoid having to go back there twice for a new fix. :thumbsup:

The issue was I could not update AVG 8 which was installed in my PC (somehow it did not connect to AVG update server). I then uninstaled it wishing I was gonna download & re-install another version from AVG website. To my surprise, I could not access AVG site. I then figured out I cannot access any other anti-virus sites or even Microsoft.com for the last 3 days.

The internet provider tried to help me cheking server, DNS, IP etc, but that did not fix. I learned I can access the sites through kproxy (www.kproxy.com) but it won´t let me download large files or update AVG / Windows for example. So, it seems there is an issue with my PC.

Does any one have a clue on what could be wrong? Can this be a virus?

Any help much appreciated... thanks!! ricpira
