Windows 7: Strange issue with the game updates.

Strange issue with the game updates.

Hi there.

Since 2 weeks, I'm getting some strange problem on my win7 pro x64. I can download anything from the internet with "normal" downloads. But somehow the games updates stop randomly after some seconds / minutes . I donīt receive any error from windows, just when the update server drop my connection due to incativity.

I've already tried changing DNS and from a laptop and a 2nd computer with different OS. With the other DNS I still had the same problem and with the other computers all the update process went fine. Also tried deactivating any kind of antivirus / firewall I have on the computer.

the ping and tracert with the update servers are ok.

As I saw it was a problem just with this PC, I tried reseting TCP and winsock to the default values, the problem is still there..

Tbh, I have not idea which step should I take now.. apart from doing a format

Any help please! Thanks in advance.

Seems to happen with all the games, at least with 3-4 I tried. Aion seemed to be the only one that updated fine, but dunno if it was just "luck". I tried with Combat Arms, Lotro, and war of angels, those 3 had problems to update. I needed to restart the client every couple of minutes to finish the update process.
