I have a laptop that has XP Profressional SP2. A couple of weeks ago it started having trouble connecting to my hosting account. I couldn't connect to my account at all. Going to any domains on my account in a browser didn't work and connecting via FTP didn't work. I unchecked Passive FTP under Internet Options and could finally connect. The problem is that the connection will fail at first. I have to refresh a couple of times in a browser to connect and reconnect with FTP to stay connected. In a browser, if I go to a different page under one of my domains, I still have to refresh a few times to see the page.
My firewall and any security program is off. There aren't any viruses and spyware. All the other computers in my home can connect to my hosting account just fine. So far my websites under my hosting account are the only websites that my laptop is having problems with.
The only thing I can think of that may have caused this is when I tried to upgrade to SP3. It failed and I have to use System Restore to restore to an earlier date.
