I believe what I write next might sounds nonsense or strange. I still believe that the same old known problem which has 100 thread "Limited or no connectivity" problem is not from my side, but I was wondering and I have decided to ask you guys. I have read other threads but found nothing similar.
I have laptop and desktop running WinXp with broadband connection in my room. I live in shared student apartment and both my house mates have internet!
2 weeks ago, I was using the internet and scanning my laptop at the same time with AVG free edition. The internet become slow and then the message "Limited or no connectivity" problem.
Later I had warning from AVG that svchost under _restore system volume information is trying to run. I moved it to virus vault.
I called the ISP and it seems that I am the only one complaining (more than 100 connection in the area).
I have called my ISP 10 times and last time they asked me to turn my PC on and give them the MAC ID.
They failed to fix the problem in the last 2 weeks and they decided to report to housing company.
now the interesting information which makes me doubt that the fault from my side that:
1- neither the laptop or the desktop are working - no internet
2- my laptop works fine at my house mate room - no problem
3- My desktop has no anti-virus software and no firewall
4- changed the Ethernet cables
what makes me wonder that, I was scanning my PC with AVG for the first time when/during this happened and the svchost warning!
I still have my suspect that that someone disconnected me from the main switch or the cable has ruined ...
