Iíve starting having trouble connecting to the internet with certain programs in the past few days. My normal internet connection works fine - browsers, downloading, updating programs such as antivirus or spyware programs and other basic stuff. But when it comes to programs such as torrents, Battle.net or some of my instant messaging programs (icq, qip, miranda...), I always get the same error after waiting dozens of seconds to connect: "unable to establish connection; timed out" etc. I donít get it! Why is my browser (be it Mozilla, Opera or IE) working perfectly, but I canít seem to connect to the internet through other means? Am I missing something? It really came out of the blue. One day everything worked and now it doesnít. Iíve tried searching for viruses and spyware and malware and that sort of stuff, but my computer seems to be clean and runs perfectly apart from the connection problem. Does anyone have any ideas what might be causing this? Thank you for any help you can give me.
