    Whenever I visit a site it initially gives me the "server not found" error page and forces me to mash F5 a few times for the page to finally load. This only happens when I boot into 7, my internet is perfect on my XP partition. Any idea why this is happening? I updated all my drivers and I'm connected to a pretty large network but I'm the only one with this connection problem. It's been going on for over a week and I can't take this crap anymore.

    Are you sure you don't have some nasty trogan or some such thing. That is just too weird behavior.

    If I do it's done an amazing job avoiding detection by Avast, Spybot, HijackThis and MBAC.

    Is Windows 7 a clean install or an upgrade? Upgrades frequently cause problems.

    Did you install anything from Apple like iTunes? I ask because the Bonjour service included is known to cause havoc to Windows' networking.

    You can check for the presence of mdnsresponder.exe in the task manager. Let us know.

    I have seen such conditions related to anti-virus or firewall programs, or a combination thereof.
