    Since this morning my connection has been really acting up. I can't load AIM or MSN and 9 out of 10 times I can't SSH into my school servers. The 1 time it does work, it works fine though...including X-Win etc. When I try to go to a webpage in either IE or Mozilla it doesn't find it about half the time and the other half it's really, really slow. Now this is all in windows and this problem has been happening all day.

    I boot into linux and everything is fine. I can connect to messenger services and all webpages load up nice and quick. If I boot back into windows I have the exact same problems.

    No settings have been touched since yesterday when everything was working fine. I downloaded the latest virus list from AVG and ran a full scan as well as Adaware and Spybot S&D...nothing found by any of the programs.

    What the hell could be going on?

    Here's a question; what kind of internet connection?
    If it's a cable or dsl modem and if it (the modem) is left on 24/7, unplug it for about 5-10 mins and then see what happens.

    Might also be a damaged network file.
