I have a problem that has me baffled.

My internet programs such as: Kazaa Lite K++, Mirc 6.12, Avant browser, (running under win xp) all hang from time to time for a few seconds. Kazaa being the worst. They are all latest versions.

It seems every time im using kazaa and connecting to someone to download a file it hangs (sometimes for about 30 sec or more). once im connected and downloading the file, evrything is fine.

Mirc does the same thing when im connecting to a server. Once connected to the server (doesnt matter which server), everything is fine.

Avant browser will freeze for a few secs when i click on links, but not always.


I defrgd my HDD.

I have used Mcafee to scan for viruses. I've used trojan remover and a other trojan detection programs to scan for, you guessed it, trojans. Nothing at all was found.

Nothing suspicious is loading at startup.

Ive run scans on my registry and repaired any problems i found.

ive checked event viewer... no help there.

I've reset tcp/ip settings using "netsh int ip reset".

being connected to the net with no programs open and running "netstat -n", brings up no connections.

i have not installed any new hardware, and as far as i know everything to do with hardware is tip top.

ive checked task manager... no suspicious programs are running. Basically nothing running at all and still problems.

ive reinstalled all 3 programs. Deleting everything that the uninstall function didnt.

I dont have any other problems. My pc is pretty much in tip top shape. Its P***ing me off. i cant think of anything else to do short of formating.

Anyone got any sugestions?

What ever that is, it is connecting through port 53 (domain name server port)
i dont have any servers setup on my system. Certainly no DNS servers.

You can delete any 017 entry in the hjt log - if it is legitamate, it will be replaced by your isp the next time you log on.

Thanks guys :)

I live in Australia, so i guess that IP address is legit.

Ive used that spybot program, it found this Alexa spyware that ad-aware didnt pick up, and a DSO exploit. I fixed em all but still the same s**t.

Apparently microsoft put out a patch for the DSO exploit that didnt fix it.

Anyways i'm thinking maybe it is hardware somewhere, or my modem drivers. I might reinstall the drivers and see how i go. Unfortunity the drivers for my modem havent been updated in years, its not supported anymore.

Anyways thanks again.
