I'm having a strange issue: I just installed Windows XP. I also installed WinXP SP2. When I use a browers (IE or Firefox) to browse the internet, everything works fine for a while. After a while, the browsers will not access the internet anymore. I check my network usage, and there are not packets being sent or received. However, all other programs (AIM, Windows Media Player, iTunes, ping, etc...) have no problems getting to the the internet, its just the browsers. It works fine again after a reboot (but stops working after a while again). I can't seem to find any patterns on when or why the browsers would stop working all of a sudden. I've tried both going through a wireless connection and a standard ethernet connection, same thing. This happened as soon as I installed a new copy of XP, so there shouldn't be any spy ware yet, but I ran Adware just in case and it didn't find anything. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
