    Trouble accessing internet after updates


    Whenever my computer updates itself, I have problems accessing the internet. Specifically... whenever I open Firefox or Internet explorer, I can access the internet for a very limited time, then nothing. For example, I can visit one, maybe two pages, then I can't access anything, until I restart the computer. To solve this problem, I have to do a system restore.... if I restore my system to a point to say, 2 - 4 weeks earlier, the problem goes away. But I don't think this will work forever. Any advice will be appreciate. Thanks.

    There is an underlying issue here. Is your Windows legit? Run a scan with MBAM. Is your hosts file clean? Run a scan iwth Kaspersky TDSS Killer, run the System File Checker.
