I recently have been having an odd problem. When I am done using my computer my screen saver turns on or I log off. Later when I want to use my computer again, I wiggle the mouse to stop the screen saver or log back in. Also I have my screen saver password protected (not sure if this makes a difference). Anyway, after I get back on my computer my web browser will not connect to the Internet. I have tried IE and Firefox but neither will load a page. It takes 3 to 5 minutes for the browser to say that it can't load. What is odd is that if I try to update my anti-virus software or play an online based game, these all work. Its just the browsers that wont work. I have tried to repair the connection, log off and log back on, switch to a wireless connection but nothing works. The only solution I have found is to restart my computer and then everything works normally again. This has started to become a pain. Any ideas? Thanks!
Edit: Also, I am using Windows XP Home edition.
