Both IE and Mozilla (1.7) are not displaying websites properly. Google.com times out for instance. Other websites are not displayed correctly like without graphics. All works fine when I startup in save mode. My connection seems to work fine. I can download updates for virus programs etc. One of my email accounts also times out in outlook. Both these problems started at the same time. I´ve ran several virus checks (housecall, avast and AVG) and spyware checks (Spybot, Spycatcher, bazooka and CWwhredder) but the problem is still there. Thanks in advance for your help! :tazz:

Most pages don´t load. Some do but without images.

Google.com: keeps loading forever without anything happening
This site: A white screen appears thats all
Microsoft.com: Keeps loading forever
dwac.nl: no images
adobe.com: White screen
kieskeuring.nl: Is displayed but with a different font than normally

Most site do not load or show a white screen.

I seem to have found the cause:

When I stop the process ashWebSv.exe everything works again. This process is related to avast antivirus. I just cannot figure out how to fix this.

Any ideas?
