My internet connection is being blocked for minutes at a time, seemingly randomly, and it seems to be getting worse. I decided to check McAfee VirusScan options while it was happening and discovered that Virusscan was also 'hanging' and, perhaps foolishly, put 2+2 together to conclude that Virusscan was the cause and not just another symptom.il
I uninstalled, re-installed Virusscan to no avail and have now uninstalled again and running my laptop (Windows 7) with only Windows security protecting me - but my internet connection problem seems to have disappeared.
I have several other devices connected to my network, including a netbook with virusscan - all running without a problem.
Any advice about what I can do please?
Sorry, should have added that the problem manifests itself in the following ways:
- Google Chrome won't load any pages and simply says "Sending Request"
- IE is similar and says "Waiting for response"
- Outlook does not connect
- Skype does not connect
