Help. I loose browser conection after restart.

Ih everyone! Im a newby here and i came by after i found that my computer stoped geting access to web browsing, only afects the browser (firefox, iexp), but every other aplication thet needs network, they go fine. I saw here a solucion by running cmd and make winsock reset, it worked well, but just until i restart the machine then have to winsock reset again.

Any ideia? I recently instaled sp1 for win7, i did restart the computer a lot that day and never had this issue. Router? Avast 6? im kind of lost.

Any help would be great, and thanks you.

Hi, welcome to the forums

You could try the following...

1, Open Control Panel > Network and Internet > Internet Settings
2, Under the 'Connections' tab click 'Lan Settings'
3, If 'Use a proxy server for your LAN...' is checked then uncheck it and click OK then OK again and try your browsers.

I have heard that Avast can cause this issue. Try disabling realtime protection for just a few moments while you try to access a SAFE site.

That's good news, at least we know what the root cause it.

Are you using a free version (unregistered)? If so you may want to look into installing Microsoft Security Essentials

I have installed avast! and I can no longer browse the Web. How can I solve this?
Solution

Check your firewall configuration. For the correct operation the Web Shield process (ashWebSv.exe or aswWebSv.exe) needs a permission to access the Internet on TCP port 80 and a permission to act as a server and accept incoming connections from localhost (the local machine) on TCP port 12080.
