Hi,

I have been facing a weird problem for the last 3 days now and after trying endlessly I have given up on this one. Please help!

My browsers seem to have suddenly stopped working. I am able to establish a connection to the Internet and also download (P2P etc.). But the minute I open my browser, it just gets stuck at "waiting for www.google.com". The page just doesnt load. This happens with every single webpage.

I have scanned my system with Avast, Avira and AVG --> no infections found
Ran MBAM, SUPERAntispyware and Sophos Anti-Rootkit --> no infections found
Used WinsockXPFix and LSPFix (from MajorGeeks.com) --> din't solve the issue
Used CCleaner and TuneUp Utilities to clean up the system --> din't work.

I am able to ping my gateway and also websites, but none of my browsers load any pages (I have tried FF, IE and Chrome. Same problem in all of them).

Have attached the HJT log below. I don't see nothing unusual here... Please help. This is extremely urgent, since I run my business online.

Note: Of late (when my browsers we working, Avira would throw a lot of pop-ups about some .jpg / .bmp files being disguised as Pavleko.abki or Crypt.X something... )

The same connection works perfectly well on my friend's laptop.

I am desperate to fix this so please help out here..

Mods: I apologise if this is in the wrong section. This is my 1st post here.

TCP/IP stack repair options for use with Windows XP with SP2 or SP3.

Click Start > Run > type CMD

In the Command Prompt, type in the bolded text, one command after the other, pressing Enter between each of them:

Reset WINSOCK entries to installation defaults: netsh winsock reset catalog

Reset TCP/IP stack to installation defaults: netsh int ip reset reset.log

Reboot the machine.
