Slow or locked internet with win 7

    Hello!

    I get a problem with either explorer 6 or google chrome, or even livemail:

    very often, the system seems awaiting for some answer, and doesn't succeed
    to reach the goal; but if I shutdown or enven go to hibernate, after
    restart, it works well (for a few moments).

    I tried "WinSockrepair" but still the same.

    I don't find anything related on the net... Any ideas?

    I had a similar effect when I got a new Netgear modem/router. On the basic
    setup page there was a setting - 'Idle Timeout (in minutes)' that was set to
    3 minutes or something silly like that.
    Maybe you have a similar setting somewhere.

    That would only apply if using PPPoE in the router because of using a
    DSL service. The OP didn't identify *how* (what protocol) he uses to
    connect to his ISP. If cable broadband then there is no keep-alive
    option as it doesn't apply.

    The OP gave no information on just WHAT is his network. Nothing about
    what protocols are used, what devices are used, or anything about his
    network. A simple test (if he has a router) is to simply see if he can
    connect to the router's own web server (typically by browsing to
    http://192.168.1.1). If that works then the networking on his host is
    working and it's a problem on the WAN-side of his router. So when the
    problem appears but before shutting down, see if connecting to the
    router's web server still works.

    Of course, it is assumed the OP has already scanned his host using
    anti-virus/malware software (and preferrably more than just one program
    to overlap the detection coverage).
