    Try this

    Sounds to me like some sort of software is conflicting with your network connection upon booting.

    Try booting up normally and clicking:
    START
    then
    RUN

    Then type in: MSCONFIG

    Click the 'STARTUP' tab and then 'Disable All' at the bottom right. This will disable any programs that boot with windows so you can trial and error which program could be causing problems.

    Alternavitely it would be worth your time to run a scan on your system in safemode. Go to http://housecall.trendmicro.com and run a free virus scan.

    hope this helps.

    Hello and welcome to Techspot.

    Your system is infected with malware. I have therefore moved your thread to our Security and the Web forum.

    Very Important: Before deciding whether you should clean or reformat your system, go and read this thread HERE and decide what it is you want to do.

    If after reading the above, you wish to clean your system, do the following.

    Go and read the Viruses/Spyware/Malware, preliminary removal instructions. Follow all the instructions exactly.

    Post fresh HJT, AVG Antispyware and Combofix logs as attachments into this thread, only after doing the above.

    Also, let me know the results of the AVG Antirootkit scan.

    Regards Howard :wave: :wave:
