    Hello all!

    I've been having this problem for a week now. Running XP SP1.

    I can connect to the internet (DSL or dial-up) but I can't view any websites or check email in OE. Strangely, this happens only if I connect and disconect from the internet a couple of times. If it happens and after I restart the machine (log off doesn't help) it then connects to the internet normally.

    The ports 80 (http) and 110 (pop) are closed. Firewall is not to blame, I checked. I also ran the antivirus program, ad-aware and spybot, they came up with nothing. The symptoms look like New.Net or after it's been removed with Ad-Aware (or so they tell me) but never had this pest. I also ran winsockfix.exe which didn't change anything. I read somewhere that the problem might be in winsock.dll and other winsock files being messed up. How many important files are there in XP and where should they be located (windows, windows/system or windows/system32)?

    Local area network works BTW. Hosts file is intact.

    I don't know what else to do other than formating my hard drive and reinstalling everything. Which I really want to avoid. Could somebody please help? Any suggestions are welcome.

    Thank you,

    Petra

    Your Log looks fine with the exception of this one:

    O23 - Service: IBM PSA Access Driver Control - Unknown - C:\WINDOWS\system32\PsaSrv.exe (file missing)

    The file it is pointing to is missing, so you may as well have HJT fix it.

    I am unsure as to why the problem is intermittent, Do you connect via a switch or router etc ?

    With ADSL I am connected through a switch. But the same thing happens if I use dial-up connection from somewhere else.

    Now it works fine because I'm freshly connected since the last restart. If I was to disconnect and connect again the first couple of times it would report an error: (something like: tcp/ip cp error 31: the device is not functioning) and after that the next time I try it would connect but not open pages.

    Maybe the entries in the event viewer are connected with this problem:

    Maybe this helps you understand the problem better. It doesn't help me. :)

    No I'm afraid it doesn't help me a lot either, I see a reference to your ipod device in there, and I am wondering if it has anything to do with itunes that you have running?

    Try disabling or uninstalling it, and see if that helps.

    The iPodService was set to disabled. I enabled it to see if anything changes.
    It doesn't. Still the same problem...

    Hi!

    I ran winsockfix.exe and I reinstalled TCP/IP. At first it looked promising. It has connected succesfully seven times, then the next time it failed again...

    Hi...I could be wrong, but I believe I am experiencing the same problem. I have been having problems with my browser. Now at different times, or certain days, the browser will work or will maybe just be slower. But when I contacted my Cable company, and they gave me directions on how to fix it, or even check what was wrong, and they also seemed to think those ports are somehow closed.

    What could cause this?
