Connected but Browser Unstable

Post by lepant on Sun Nov 29, 2009 6:03 am

Hi, I've been having issues with my browser ever since I installed Chrome from Google. My browser (IE and Firefox) would sometimes work when I reboot, but only for a moment, then it would simply act as though I wasn't connected to the internet. After a few minutes though, it will work normally again, but only momentarily.

I tried using WinSock and the solution provided on this thread: [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] but, that didn't work either. I did a system restore, scanned my PC with Spybot and AVG Anti-Virus, but that didn't work either. I've also uninstalled Chrome. No luck either.

Edit: Also, I have encountered an 'AntiVirus System Pro' virus a day or so before installing Chrome, but I bypassed it with a system restore. Not sure if that has any relevance.

Code:

Here is my hijackthis.log:

Hello.
Make sure no proxy is set.

Remove the Proxy setting in Internet Explorer and/or in FireFox.

    In Internet Explorer
  1. Tools Menu -> Internet Options -> Connections Tab ->Lan Settings > uncheck "use a proxy server" or reconfigure the Proxy server again in case you have set it previously.

    In Firefox
  1. Tools Menu -> Options... -> Advanced Tab -> Network Tab -> "Settings" under Connection > Choose "No Proxy"
  2. Click the apply button and restart that computer in normal mode.


Please download and run this tool.

Download Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware from [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

Double Click mbam-setup.exe to install the application.

  • Make sure a checkmark is placed next to Update Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware and Launch Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware, then click Finish.
  • If an update is found, it will download and install the latest version.
  • Once the program has loaded, select "Perform Quick Scan", then click Scan.
  • The scan may take some time to finish,so please be patient.
  • When the scan is complete, click OK, then Show Results to view the results.

Programs removed, but the problem still remain. However I noticed that when my browser is 'down' I am able to access google via typing in the IP address, but not thru [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] Also, I am able to search just fine on google, but when I click on any link, I get the "Server not found" error.

Another thing I forgot to mention; I was refreshing rapidly via f5 on Chrome, for a good amount of time before this problem started appearing.

Edit: I am no longer able to search on google during my browser downtimes.
Edit2: Apparently the problem went away when I changed the DNS server address provided by my ISP (Sympatico) to an OpenDNS server address.

Anyway, it seems that my problem isn't caused by malware, so I apologize for that. I did however learn a few things by visiting GeekPolice though. So thanks for that! Thank You!

Ah, just a bad DNS then? OpenDNS is usually quite stable. Smile
