Within the last 5 weeks...you have posted a number of issues, including a malware thread which was not resolved (doesn't appear to be your fault, lack of proper response by BC personnel).
I would suggest that you initiate a new topic at BC Am I Infected Forum
and lay aside the possibility that your system problems do not have malware as chief contributor. If you elect to do so, post back and indicate that's the route you have taken and I will close this thread.
If you go that route, please read/follow the rules/suggestions in that forum for ensuring prompt attention/resolution of suspected issues.
FWIW: Malware often change user ability to connect to the Internet, changing connection settings to use a proxy. You may want to check your connection settings as they exist right now. Typically, the box should be unchecked.http://answers.yahoo.com/question/index?qi...14094134AAFsZax
