Hi everyone again.
I have a notebook computer that is exhibiting intermittant connectivity. I have tried replicated the problem on both a wireless and a hardwired connection.

I have removed all firewalls and Norton antivirus. Installed Avast antivirus which found 26 cases of trojans....all deleted. Disabled Windows firewall but still intemittant connectivity.

It loads pages very slowly and somtimes will connect but doesnt load the graphics on the page. Then when you try to connect to another site it returns the page cannot be found error.

Using Win XP home and Internet Explorer. Have gotten all the windows updates.

Next thing is to scan for pests and spyware but this was done a couple weeks ago already.

Any ideas?
