    After working flawlessly for six months, my computer is having trouble with browsers and connecting to the Internet. I'm using Windows XP Pro, Internet Explorer, Opera, Microsoft Outlook, and WSFTP to access Roadrunner cable. I have not installed SP2.

    I did not download anything prior to this problem starting on February 6. I did, however, have my firewalls turned off overnight a couple of days before (February 4 or 5).

    Using Internet Explorer, I can successfully access web pages as usual.
    But after about five minutes, the browser (both Internet Explorer and Opera) cannot find the web site and I get the "the page cannot be displayed" message.
    But, I can still access the web pages to my web page hosting companies ( Ipowerweb.com) control panel web sites and all of its links.



    I can also still use the Microsoft Outlook and WS FTP programs with no problem.

    If I turn off the computer and restart, the cycle restarts where I can access web pages for five minutes or so.

    When I have a part of zoneAlarm running (vmon I believe), when a cannot access the web pages I get a screen that says I should rename the folder "Internet logs" but when I go into Windows Explorer I cannot rename the folder because it is either in use or has security.

    Any suggestions?

    Thank you

    Did your home page change? Have you checked for spyware?
