I've got a problem that is baffling me. This computer will connect to the internet and load pages just fine. However, after 10 minutes or so, the pages stop connecting and I can't do anything. The only thing that will allow me to connect again is to restart the computer. I've checked for malware and their doesn't appear to be any, but you never know. Another weird thing is that after the pages stop loading, I can still ping out to any site. Also, Yahoo Messenger will still work, however MSN and my AVG antivirus won't. Seems like it might be a DSN problem but I'm not for sure.

Anybody seen a problem like this?

How do you connect to the Internet? Do you use a router? Which version of XP do you have, and are you current on updates?

I fixed the problem. It ended up being a bad installation of Zonealarm. Apparently this is a problem that has affected alot of people, so if they do run across this, have them do a clean install of Zonealarm. Instead of selecting "Upgrade" on installation, have them select "Clean Install". The internet connection should work after this. Thanks for your help.
