This is only happening on my Win7 computer. About 20% of the time, I'll either get "the connection was reset", or the page will only load some text.

If I restore to windows default host file, all is fine. Except of course I get the annoying ad popups and stuff.

My 2 other xp computers are using the same MVPS hosts file and the same web pages load fine, with popups being blocked by the hosts file.

This started about 2 months ago.

I tried Firefox in safe mode, no help. Internet Explorer does it, too.

I tried offloading firewall, no help. Rebooted router, no help. Reinstalled Firefox, no help.

I deleted all temp internet files, cookies, no help.

The only thing that fixes it is restoring to the default Windows hosts file.

 

The only way I can see my websites is to refresh over and over till they load. Might take 5 times, maybe 10.

Alright I fixed it. I'm using F-Secure anti-virus (free from my isp). When I un-checked the "scan and remove viruses from web traffic" the problem disappeared.

I still have "real-time scanning" and "browsing protection".
