Windows 7: Internet not Linking to PC

You have this in your system specs ...
Antivirus Avast McAfee

You only need one Anti-virus! These programs are resource hogs and will fight for your system's resources (which you don't have a lot of!) They could also fight each other's virus definitions, so please uninstall one of them.

If you choose to uninstall McAfee, follow the guide here: Uninstall McAfee

Now as VistaKing asked, Download DDS from one of these links:
DDS.com
DDS.pif
  • Disable any script blocking protection
  • Double click the dds icon to run the tool.
  • When done, DDS will open two (2) logs:
    1. DDS.txt
    2. Attach.txt <--- will be minimized in the task tray
  • Save both reports to your desktop.
Include the contents of both logs in your next post.

This is what the DDS icon looks like

I have gone through the motions and posted the resulting files to the Forum. Instead of Avast I have chosen McAfee as it is coupled with an update service. Tried to wipe off all traces of Avast. Start up time has shortened noticeably.

The initial problem of inability to load torrents persists, despite following all the generous suggestions I received.

Cleaned up, removed other garbage and then, using RegEdit removed all instances where
McAfee was blocking. That did the trick.

Thanks everyone for help.
