Well what i first thought was an AIM issue soon showed to be more than that. I get disconnected from yahoo and AIM randomly anywhere from 10 seconds to 10 minutes, and it will continue to do so. I found out that when it disconnets, the internet too, stops. I have been on 4 different connections wired lan in college, wireless broadband, and two seperate wired broadbands.....the computer logs off on all of them. Can someone help me?

Try freshening up your IP and clearing your DNS

Start - Run - (type)cmd
this will bring up a DOS Box display with a blinking cursor

At the blinking cursor type the following commands in sequence, waiting for the procedures to complete before entering the next command:

ipconfig /release - enter <-- notice the required space before the "/"
ipconfig /renew - enter <-- notice the required space before the "/"
ipconfig /flushDNS - enter <-- notice the required space before the "/"

(Each of the above ipconfig steps may take from a few seconds to a minute or so to complete.
Wait for the blinking cursor to return before moving on to typing the next command.)
___________

If the above does not remedy the problem, try this Next:
go here:
http://files.webatta...insockxpFix.exe
Download Winsockxpfix.exe to your Desktop

Run Winsockxpfix.exe

For additional information about Winsockfix.exe you may read, here:

Do you Power Cycle (leave off without power for 20 minutes or so) your Modem/Router, or do you leave them always on?

If the above plus the earlier posted steps don't help, you may have an infection that should be checked out over in our Malware Forum, here: http://forums.whatth...emoval_f27.html

Read and follow the instructions here:
http://forums.whatth...ers_t34502.html

Please keep us posted with your progress, but Do Not Post your HJT Log here into this thread, since we don't analyze/fix Malware issues here.

Once you get the All Clear - once you are told your machine is no longer infected, please feel free to post back here to deal with any other problems that may remain.

Best Regards
