Hi, My IE connection comes and goes in no specific pattern. All other programs and systems seem to be running fine and at the normal speed. This problem began when I did a disc clean-up and it suggested I could free up more space by removing programs I did not use. I opened Add and Remove programs and found two I felt I no longer needed: Corel Paint Shop Pro and Hijackthis. I have the feeling I should not have removed the latter. I did a system restore and the problem did not go away.

These are the symptoms. When I first turn on the computer for the day it will or will not connect to IE, there seems to be no specific pattern. While I and sit here and try to diagnose the issue I repeatedly try to connect until I am successful, this can take min., hours, and sometimes I cannot connect for most of the day. Then I will lose that connection for no apparent reason, most of the time this happens within a half an hour and I will get my connection back same as before,min.,hours, or not till the next day.

I'm using a Dell B110 with Itel Pentium 4--2.80GHz
Processor speed--2.73GHz
RAM--512MB
OS--Windows XP Home Edition
I'm connected on a home network through a Linksys Broadband Firewall Router With 4-Port Switch/VPN Endpoint, which is connected to a cable modem. The Dell and router are less than a year old. The other computer on this network has no connection problems at all and is the host PC, if thats what you call it. I"ve dissconected the power cord for the modem for 30 seconds and powered it up again more than once. I"ve went through the set-up procedure of the modem again,ran Cox Security Suite Spycatcher and Virus scan as well as Spybot and AdAware. Found some spyware but nothing out of the ordinary except one I had not seen before(Actual Spy-Key Logger)which i deleted, and no infected files.

Here is what else I have done: reset my winsock provider catalog; ran a ping test with perfect results, repaired LAN more than once, uninstalled IPv6, and disabled Windows as well as Cox firwall, all suggested through this site. Reset winsock repairs my connection some times,repairing LAN never, and after I got rid of IPv6 and restarted I was able to connect, but only for about an hour. I"ve checked all cables and all is well. I am now at a loss which is pretty much where I started, any help would be greatly appreciated. Here is a new HJT log and ipconfig/all results:
