Just joined forum to support 'Angrycustomer' and say that I've been experiencing this same thing for months now, (first noticed it before Dec 2011).
I've got McAfee Total Protection, (Windows 7 OS), and the only program that it appears to change, (very regularly), is Google Chrome, which it changes from 'full' to 'outgoing'.
The symtoms are that the internet appears to freeze, but if you check the McAfee firewall settings, it's changed Chrome back to 'outgoing' again?
