  1. I'm having troubles somewhere and dont know whats going on. I can only connect to my browser. Anything that involves the internet such as games or napster wont work. Nothing will connect. So basically the money i paid for napster and my games are going to waste. I can get on msn but i cant do webcam or use the the mic. I've turned my firewall off, turned av off, turned modem and router off, unplugged them both, reset my router, and updated the firmware. Nothing works. I've posted this on another site like this and they couldnt tell me anything. I have no idea what to do. Anyone have any suggestions? Also my comp isnt the only one that does this. My dads cant do it either.

    Hello and welcome to Techspot.

    Let`s do a quick check to see if your system is infected with malware.

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

    Regards Howard :wave: :wave:

    I can`t see any obvious problems in your HJT log, but give this a try.

    Run HJT with no other programmes open. Click the scan button. Have HJT fix the following entries.

    R1 - HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main,Default_Page_URL =

    R1 - HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main,Default_Search_URL =

    R1 - HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main,Search Bar =

    R1 - HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main,Search Page =

    R0 - HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main,Start Page =

    R0 - HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main,Local Page =

    R0 - HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main,Local Page =

    R1 - HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Internet Settings,ProxyOverride = localhost

    O17 - HKLM\System\CCS\Services\Tcpip\..\{C35795F8-5D7E-4109-8EDB-19E2578E240D}: NameServer =,<Only fix this if it doesn`t belong to your ISP.

    Click on the fix checked button.

    Close HJT and reboot your computer. let us know if that helps at all.

    Regards Howard :)

    When did your problem first appear?

    Had you installed any new hardware/software prior to the appearance of the problem?

    Have you tried a system restore to before your problem began?

    Regards Howard :)

    It happened maybe a 2 weeks ago. I went to sleep and everything was fine. I woke up the next day and only my browser worked. Same with my dads comp. I havent done a system restore because i thought it would be pointless seeing as how its not just my comp thats having the problem. I havent installed any programs that might have caused anything to not work. It just randomly quit one day :(

    I think it`s either a problem with the router setup or something, or possibly with your ISP. I take it your fathers computer is connected on the same network?

    If it is, could you post a HJT log from your fathers computer, just in case it`s a malware problem with his system. If that turns out to be clean, I`ll move this thread to our Storage and Networking forum.

    Regards Howard :)

    sounds like a malconfigured firewall -- which one are you using.

    btw: it has been reported that even though you 'stop the firewall', some vendor's
    products do not totally disengage the TCP stack and are still filtering the data.
