A month or so ago something happened with my browsers (I have both IE and Firefox). I couldn't get into anything from yahoo, including my mail or my hotmail account and the sites that I did get into loaded extremely slow. I've tried winsock, ip-release, mulitple virus/spyware/adware scans, contacted my isp and all with no luck. The only thing that does work is a system restore and I think it's a little silly to have to do that everytime I want to check my mail, so in an act of desperation to get rid of this thing I'm posting this incase someone knows what's wrong.

I've deleted both cache and cookies from both browsers, but it didn't work.
