Recently my computer has been having alot of problems. Constant freezing, startup problems and more. But most of that is under control but I'm left with one problem. Whenever I try to use an internet based log in function (e.g. msn, emails, internet shops) it fails to load the page (for example with gmail on firefox I get an error saying "The connection was refused when attempting to contact www.google.com."). It does this is both internet browsers, but not on a computer connected up to the router through a hub. This computer also seems to have no problem logging into most forums. Does anyone have any clue whats causing this? I have deleted 11gigs of my 17gig harddrive in attempt to get the computer working and have run virus and spyware scans with newly downloaded and older programs.
Edit: my apology if this is thread should be in another forum
