Hi all, I consider myself an master computer operator, both hardware and software, but I am having a problem it is driving me insane:
After a short amount of time since starting a session, web-browsing internet connection gets blocked by something.
When this happens also AVG updater does not work and shows an error.
A service or resident something is blocking my internet, it takes a litle while to start, sometime the browser starts running faster, but eventually catches up and blocks my internet.
SYSTEM AND STUFF
Vaio C1MZX Win XP SP 2 or 3 (not sure)
wireless connection, hardware is fine and switched on
Was working fine since I installed the whole damn lot
telnet ping ok
email connection ok
chat cleints like messenger icq and the likes ok
no web browser works, explorer, mozilla seamonkey etc, none
WHEN DID I NOTICE SOMETHING WRONG
I installed a fresh SPybot and teatimer and teatimer was blocking my internet for some unknown reason. I ticked it off and ended up uninstalling Spybot. The thing worked for a while but then the problem resurfaced
I got suspicious of malwarebytes also and unistalled it
WHAT THINGS I HAVE DONE BESIDES GOING MAD
I clean up registry eliminated all traces of Norton crap, zone alarm crap, teatimer and spybot.
Ran thw winsock fic thinghy.
Worked on some winsock command lines at one stage the internet came back but then the problem resurfaced two weeks later.çi was geting by with a system restora but it stopped working.
System restore does not create checkpoints and looses the previous month data.
I have tried to find every possible solution to this. I do not want to reinstall OS and things like that.
Would love to have a event logger so I can see exactly when the internet gets blocked what process or program started and then see if that is what it is blocking it. I am unsure about how to use. I am afraid I have lost a bit the plot with software.
I am satisfied all hardware works.
I get a bit of webbrowsing if the browser starts ahead of the mysterious process that blocks it in less than one minute. After that there is nothing I can do.
Naturally I have disabled AV firewall and everything I could, to no avail.
Any help greatly appreciated. Please tell me what I am doing wrong, what the issue is.
