  1. Hi! Over the past few days, internet explorer decided not to connect. Msn and other internet dependant services but i got the can not could screen when trying to browse the web. I reinstalled it and got firefox, both worked fine. Then again today they both stopped working. I put my wireless router back to its factory settings and it worked. Anyone know the problem here? The network has a password set by me. And has worked up until now. Help please?

    Thanks in advance

    It sounds like you may have a malware problem.

    Go and read this thread HERE and post a HJT log as an attachment into this thread.

    Nope, no problems there. However, you`re running an outdated version of HJT.

    Regards Howard :)

    You`re correct, no problems there.

    It may be that some of your network settings have gone astray. However, I know bugger all about networking, so I`ll leave that to those that do.

    The only other thing I can possibly think of, is your Winsock settings need repairing.

    With that in mind, please do the following and see if it helps.

    1.) Download (by: Option^Explicit)
    2.) UnZip (Pay close attention to where the file is extracted to.)
    3.) Run WinsockFix.exe.
    4.) Click the Fix button.

    Regards Howard :)
