    I have been searching for a fix to this for awhile now and haven't found one. Here is the problem.

    Basically, I am unable to access certain websites. And the list is growing by the day. Even LARGE websites like sears, circuitcity, yahoo, my browser (IE6/Windows XP) just sits there and says its waiting on a reply. I have let it sit for 10-15 minutes before with no response. Other websites, like this one, I can access fine. Just about 3 days ago, I was able to access Yahoo Games fine. Now I cant. It seems as if every day that goes by, something with IE changes and I cant load the website. I have completely uninstalled McAffee Firewall. I disabled the Windows firewall. I tried using Mozilla Firefox. I ran Spybot S&D and AdAware. Same problem. And this isn't just a few websites, its becoming such a huge inconvenience because now I cant even go to my banks website. Does anybody have any idea what might be happening and a possible fix? Thanks in advance.

    What kind of internet connection do you have dial up,cable? I have dial up and have in the past before I knew better, used programs to "speed up" my dial up only to find out they didn't work, uninstalled them and voila, webpages started taking an increasingly disturbing amount of time to load or didn't load at all. Ended up reformatting and reinstalling windows to fix the problem. Regardless of whether you did or didn't install such software it sounds like your internet connection is deteriorating. Another thing to check if you have dial up is the actual phone line running to the phone jack. It should be one single line not multiple lines connected with "tees".

    I have cable internet, its provided by my apartment complex. At first I thought it might have been the cable here, but I checked with a couple neighbors and none of them have the problem. I don't really know what to do, it's really starting to get annoying.

    Is there a reason you are not getting the critical Windows updates?

    Platform: Windows XP (WinNT 5.01.2600)
    MSIE: Internet Explorer v6.00 (6.00.2600.0000)

    Also you are using an older version of HJT so you should get the new one prior to posting another log.
