Test what happens in [safe mode + net], and also what happens when you uninstall (not disable) your anti-virus solution.

Windows 7 Professional 64bit

Are you using an integrated NIC or a PCI card? If it's integrated I'd take the plunge and buy a gigabyte PCI card rated for Windows 7. You can get one for about $30.00 and it may just be money well spent.

H2S04 i tried starting up in safe mode +net but that didnt help so uninstalled the security software Bullguard and that seems to have sorted the problem so thanks for that.

7600.20510 x86

ZoneAlarm Extreme is in beta and I have been testing it rather well for the past 1.5 months or so. Full control of all packets in or out, based on application running. And free (beta.)

Hint: Put network adapter in internet zone, not trusted zone, and setup from that starting point.

It has Kaspersky antivirus built in.
