Hi all :thumbsup:
I'm having a problem with my vista 64bit pc. The http protocol doesn't seem to be working properly all the time. Some times i can use the internet other i can't and its getting to be more and more not. However other programs like skype and windows live work okay, no problems at all.

I connect using a wired connection, although i have also tried wireless to see if that would help. I have run ad-aware, spybot and malwarebytes anti-malware, still the problem persists. I have turned off my zonealarm to see if that was stopping it somehow, nothing changed.

I usually use google chrome for the internet although i have tried firefox and IE, non work, when the internet is working its usually ok, no packet loss. then when it stops (usually after around 10 mins or so) i get 100% packet loss.

Now i know its something to do with my pc and not the router or connection as i have a laptop running xp pro that works fine on this connection.

Any help much appreciated. Its driving me absolutely nuts.


P.S. I have also tried this pc at my mums house on their internet, same problem.
