    Internet being 'blocked' for minutes at a time

      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?
