Internet stops working even though bytes are getting through...
Ever since I upgraded my computer parts and formatted, my broadband internet has stopped working properly and i keep getting 'Page Cannot Be Displayed' errors and nothing else seems to work either, not even msn messenger etc.
Sometimes if I refresh the page 3 or 4 times, then the page appears but usually in a different format like HTML in the Times New Roman font if you know what i mean.
The strange thing is that I am still receiving the bytes from my ISP as I can see in the connection status and there must be a connection as sometimes if I refresh the page then the site appears, so I'm thinking this could be something going on at my end.
I have no firewall running and I had Service Pack 2 installed, then i uninstalled it and put Service Pack 1, but the same thing keeps happening.
To fix the problem, I have to restart my computer but then the same problem happens afterwards. Just to add as well, after I tried installing firewall software, the computer crashed when I tried to connect to my broadband. I then uninstalled the firewall and it kept happening, so i had to do a system restore.
Thanks for your help
