I’ve seen a few other posts where people have had the same problem with both IE and Firefox. Hopefully someone can help me out.
Here’s the deal. After sitting idle, usually for a few hours, my browser won’t refresh or open new pages. I have a new machine with XP Pro SP2, and IE6 SP2. Zone Alarm(automatic lock is off), NAV 06 and eTrust Pest Control. I scan with NAV, Adaware and SpyBot regularly, and I’m running SpySweeter right now. I’m not networked (no router), and my internet connection is cable.
Here is what I’ve tried so far: I can ping Google’s numerical address and get a reply, but I get no reply when I ping the URL.
LAN settings are set to Automatically connect – both IP and DNS.
I can do an ipconfig release/renew but still not be able to access webpages. The only thing that seems to help is a reboot, then all is magically well again.
Any ideas, suggestions? I’ve got a HJT log, but everything there looks good to me, but what do I know?
Thanks for any help I can get!
