This is really starting to tick me off. For the last few days I’ve been having a bitch of a time getting connected to anything via the internet. I can’t get on webpages, can’t connect to MSN, ICQ, IRC, or anything else.
The only thing that seems to work is to reboot the computer, and then I can get connected like normal for a little bit of time, then after a while I can’t connect to anything again. When I troubleshoot with MSN, it says “Your DNS appears to not be able to resolve IP addresses” and that I can’t connect to the service due to possible incorrect firewall settings, which I’ve never had a problem with before.
I didn’t switch any settings for anything before this happened. The only thing I can think of is that I downloaded some crappy spyware or virus that isn’t showing up, or that the series of power outages we had a few days ago really screwed something up.
… and in the time it took to type that… I had to reboot to send it.
