i have a vaio laptop that is having some weird connection issues. I can't view any websites using any browser (firefox, ie, chrome) unless they're HTTPS connections (tested with https://gmail.com) i tested connecting to an FTP server through the command prompt, and that works, as well as pinging google.com And after a fresh boot (on a normal boot), it seems i have about 10 seconds or so of being able to access regularly, then i just get "Cannot display webpage" from IE or "connection reset" from firefox. The connection problems do not seem to exist under safe mode with networking. I've been searching all over for possible solutions, and here's what i've already tried: 1) netsh winsock reset catalog 2) netsh int ip reset resetlog.txt 3) gone through msconfig and disabled most of non-microsoft services, and startup entries. 4) Got a full uninstaller from Norton and ran it. any more suggestions? this is getting a bit annoying.
