Have got a little problem when trying to view the internet. Basically, around 10 minutes after I first start browsing, Internet Explorer (And Firefox) just seem to stop working. The internet is still connected as I can still talk on MSN or use Spotify etc, I just can't browse the web. I can restart the PC and Internet Explorer will work again for around 10 mins, before I have to restart and so on and so forth.
I first noticed this happening around one week ago. I have tried the following to try and fix the problem but nothing:
AVG Virus Scan
As none of them worked I then did a bit google searching and it seemed that this was a common problem, although I couldn't find a solution to fix the problem. Some folk on other threads/websites suggested:
Removing a Windows update (I did, but nothing changed)
Uninstalling Firefox (Again, I did this but still the same)
Removing my ISP provided proxy (Done this but nothing).
Does anyone on here have anything I can try to fix this problem. I require the internet for college studying and it's starting to really bug me now having to restart the PC every 10 mins.
My PC is a HP Pavillion Slimline, running Vista 32-bit. My ISP is Virgin Media and i'm using AVG anti-virus and Zonealarm firewall. Any other info required please ask.
