    I would download a fresh Firefox.

    I'd set IE back to all default settings.

    I'd then uninstall all browsers including IE via the control panel.

    Then I'd run ccleaner, both the cleaner & registry cleaner.

    Then I'd install the downloaded Firefox refusing any options to use IE settings.
    I can't remember if those install options exist in Firefox but I'd be looking for an untainted install.

    Then I'd test Firefox and if it worked I'd enable IE & test it.

    Great thread Howzer. :)

      I have done most of the obvious, like rebooting the computer, modem, routers (have even started with a fresh router firmware flash)
      Bearing this in mind have you tried resetting the router to factory defaults which I guess is different to rebooting it and a firmware flash may well carry over the current settings too.
      I just looked at mine it it can be reset to factory defaults via the software & if my memory serves me it also can be reset via a little hole to poke a paper clip in or something.
      I think I'd try the router before I tried all the browsers in my previous post.

      Fed, read all the thread. Router was eliminated. If he boots Linux, the problem does not exist.In nis inside Windows.

      Well...a week has passed.  Wonder what the status of the OP's issue is, now?
