I am having an unusual and somewhat frustrating problem:
It appears that about 12 hours after I reboot my Windows 7 desktop PC, the browsers can no longer access the Internet. (I use both I.E. amd Mozilla).
It's not just the browsers..it appears anything using HTTP sockets. Other applications (i.e. bit torrents)work fine. My Yahoo Messenger does not work either.
The Internet connection is fine. I can ping through the Command Prompt address on the Internet.
I have disabled firewall - no luck
I have run evey SpyWare and Antivirus known to man - no luck
Tried running Windows TCI/IP repair - no luck
I have reset and even initialized my router - no luck.
Problem goes away only after I reboot my machine. But within 12 hrs, its happens again.
I suspect something is messing up the TCP/IP ports 80 and 8080 in Windows. How do I find out what and who?
