Not sure if this is the correct category, but I am an XP user and this problem presists on all of the internet browsers I have installed on my computer (Firefox, IE, and Crome).
A month or two ago, I noticed whenever I tried to surf the web on IE or Crome, the page never loaded. As a 99% of the time user of FireFox, I ignored it and figured the problem was something minor and I would worry about it if FF ever went down. Well, last night, FF automatically updates itself and now I have to worry about this problem.
Every time I go to view a website, ANY website, I get the "The connection was reset message" on FF, "Page Cannot be displayed on IE", and I am not sure on Crome as I deleted earlier it and had the intent of reinstalling it...
Furthermore on this issue, I turned off my Virus Software and Firewall, rebooted, etc. Shortly ago, I reset my modem and router and I was able to peruse Google for a limited amount of time until the problem quickly came back.
I am writing this on my other computer which is on the same network and had has no problems on any browser. I have tried pinging websites through command prompt and I actually get replies from websites. Also, other applications like AIM work fine and I am able to FTP my web server without any problem on my problem-computer.
I have a Add-on called "HTTP Watch" on FireFox that monitors requests being made on the web page. I have launched that and all it says is that "1 request" is made, but nothing is being "heard" in return back.
I'm baffled. Can anyone help me find a solution to my problem?
