Oh well... i'll try to solve it somehow... The firewall wasn't the cause... and it's only when i run a torrent software... anything else doesn't work.

Windows 7
A bit less complicated.. i think

ProxyEnable value was 0 and there was no proxy key but thx anyway.
Just noticed that every internet software works but when i turn on ANY torrent software (and i tried utorrent, bittorrent, vuze with default settings) everything else using the internet connection stops, until i close utorrent (or whatever) down, even if it's just downloading at 5 kb/s..... i haven't tried not downloading at all and seeing if it works...
So.. any torrent software will do the same and i tried changing the firewall and my internet security software and still nothing... any tips?

Windows 7

I download lots of Movies, Software, Tv Shows using Torrents. I use uTorrent BitTorrent client to download all the stuff.
Two days back, my browser suddenly stopped working. I usually use Firefox. I thought may be there is some problem with Firefox browser. I then tried to open a website in Google Chrome and Internet Explorer. But, i got same result. No site was opening.
I noticed one strange thing, uTorrent BitTorrent client was downloading and uploading stuff. But, at the same time i was unable to open any website in the browser. It means the internet was working.
I then closed uTorrent, waited for 10 sec and tried opening the website. I was surprised, the websites were opening. I again opened uTorrent and tried opening the website in the browser and it again stopped working.
At this point, I got to know that there is some problem related to uTorrent which is blocking the browser. Here is one of solution to unblock the browser when using uTorrent Client.
µTorrent Client blocked Browser or Browser stops working after starting uTorrent Client

Most of the users who use Torrents know that there is a Windows tweak called Change Half Open TCP Connection Limit In Windows XP SP3 to increase the download speed drastically. I used a TCP IP Patcher tool to change the Half Open TCP Connection Limit on my Windows XP SP3 laptop to set to 256 connections.
The default Half Open TCP Conneciton Limit in windows is 10. Accidentally, due to a Windows Security patch that was installed on my PC had reset the Half Open TCP Connection Limit to 10. I thought this might be the cause of Browser stopping when using BitTorrent Client.
I used the TCP IP Patcher tool to set the Half Open TCP Conneciton Limit to 256 from 10 (Windows Default). I tried opening the websites in browser and it worked!!!
If you have same problem, Try doing above. If you fail, then there may be some other cause.
Hope this helps!!
