Hi, I'm running win 7 and often when I attempt to go to a particular website, it will be as if I am not connected to the internet. In IE I get "Oops! Internet Explorer could not connect to www.xxx.com". Netflix is one of the websites that I am often unable to connect to, but far from the only one. If I reboot, I will then be able to connect to all the websites that I was unable to before the reboot. And then, within an hour or so, I have the same issue. It happens no matter which of the 4 browsers I use (IE, Chrome, Mozilla, Safari). Sometimes (but rarely), I can't connect to a website on Chrome but can on IE, but mostly, if I can't connect on one, I can't connect on any. I have run Malwarebytes and it doesn't really find anything. Any help is appreciated.

Edit: Moved topic from Win 7 to the more appropriate forum. ~ Animal

Hello. Clear web browser's cache, cookies, and history
reboot and see.
How do I get help? Who is helping me?For the time will come when men will not put up with sound doctrine. Instead, to suit their own desires, they will gather around them a great number of teachers to say what their itching ears want to hear....Become a BleepingComputer fan: Facebook

Thanks. I did that and it seems to have worked. I wanted to give it a few day to be sure, but since I cleared my browsers a few days ago, I have had no problems.

Thanks again
