I've recently got rid of a lot of spyware etc following advice from the guys on this forum. However, now my browser (either IE 5.5 or Firefox on Win ME) stops working after about 10mins and just sits trying to connect to the next page I click. I can only resolve this by rebooting, and the whole cycle starts again.

Over the past couple of days I've noticed the following:

(1) a working connection seems to last for about 9-10mins if I boot up then start Firefix or IE straight away. After thi time, it just can't connect to whatever page I try for and simply hangs or times out.

(2) if I don't start a browser in the 1st 10mins, when I come to open a browser I can't connect at all.

(3) Firefox has stopped opening some php pages and javascript, but I've clicked the javascript options as normal

It seems to me that something is timing 10mins from when I boot up then kicks in, preventing me from connecting any further.
