Very strange problem. Have you done an updated antivirus scan?

You can do an online one here:

http://housecall.antivirus.com/pc_housecall/

Also it might help to have a look at what programs are loading and running at startup. There are some, spyware and foistware, which can replace wsock32.dll and alter the winsock keys in the registry.

Go to start, run msinfo32 and click on "software environemnt" and "startup programs". Then click edit>select all>edit>copy and paste the copied text in your next reply.

And have you tried different access numbers for your ISP?
