It's been a couple of months since I've had this issue. It happens in both Internet Explorer and Firefox Mozilla (latest versions of both)

I get many "Server not found" errors, sometimes I have to refresh a page 10 or more times to access it. It's as if the browsers immediately gives up trying to connect to webpages. In Firefox, it says "Looking for: www.****.***" and it immediately displays the "Server not Found" page. Whenever I'm using any Bittorrent client, I can't even go to any page, no matter how much I limit the bandwidth use and connections of the client.

Things I've tried so far:

* Safe Mode with Networking. I still have the issue.
* Virus Scan. Scanned with McAffe, Nod32, online scans and posted a HijackThis log file in another forum. My system is 100% clean.
* Flushing DNS
* TCP Optimizer. Tried several different setting, including restoring Windows default.
* I've checked the modem and the connection in several other computers and laptops. In all of them it works perfectly fine.

Any suggestions?

Usually caused by firewall software, such as but not limited to Norton, Zonealarm, Panda, etc. Disable the firewall in these programs for a bit and see what happens.

I thought so, that's why I desinstalled McAfee, which had a firewall, and installed Nod32. For now I'm just using the Windows firewall and the issue is still there.

Can't help on the BitTorrent thing but the browser thing is almost certainly caused by something on your computer.

Alternatively this could be an ISP problem. Have you tried other computers on your internet connection?
