I'm experiencing a very weird problem at my workstation.

I'm running on Windows 7 64 bit Home Premium. and Have Chrome / IE9 and FF22 installed.


I usually work in Chrome but lately it's been acting weird. When I just open the browser for the first minute i can access everything, but after a minute or so, i get connection timeouts for google and hotmail and some facebook image domains. All other domains seem to be working fine. This problem also occurs in IE. However none of this strange behaviour happens in FF.


I've already tried the following:


- Checked Proxy settings in IE, since I know they're shared with Chrome. Nothing strange here, just a direct connection

- Ran ipconfig /flushdns

- Checked DNS settings in Router and in Windows IP4 protocol settings

- Re-installed Chrome

- Ran full antivirus and anti malware scans with help of someone on this forum. Computer is declared clean now


and please note:

- Problem does NOT occur in Safe Mode with networking


Can anyone please assist in solving this issue?
