Not 100% certain this belongs in this section but anyway:
Over night, my computer downloaded the automatic windows update and restarted. Once I logged back on, my browser would not connect to the internet. I knew i was online because I was running AIM. I restarted my computer and I was able to connect my browser to the internet. Soon after, about five minutes or so, it would not connect to any websites again. I tried doing a system restore but every point I went to said "unable to restore to this point". I didn't have this problem until my computer updated itself. Could it possibly be a browser hijack? If so, I could post a hijackthis log. Any ideas?
NOTE: while writing this post, my browser would not connect when I hit submit. I had to restart my computer in order to connect back to the internet.
