Apologies if I'm posting in the wrong forum...I'm freaking out because a room mate used my computer without my knowledge. I had UAC on but something is wrong. One thing 360 DID inform me during a live update that I should do a full system scan because of a host or connection issue. ( I don't remember exactly) it disconnected during an update)
I've had a problem for about a month now. It seems as if the web page sticks/hangs up. If I open Norton360 and run a scan it loads the page just fine. It seems as is something is trying to control my surf.. I have tried all kinds of scanners and can't seem to find anything. I've used MBAM, 360 and several others without luck.
Also when I start a scan like say with MalwareBytes, it will start up and when the scan begins it hangs for a second or so. Then I'll notice Windows Defender will alert a system driver change for MBAM Swissarmy (the software developer I know that) and scanner doesn't find anything. Maybe I'm being paranoid but I know this computer and something is wrong. All else is great as far as Windows OS, boots up nice and fast everything is good except for surfing. Even a large d/l will begin and hang up briefly and then finish up quickly. I also notice the task bar's activity notification will disappear (the globe by the two small computer screens) briefly and reappear (Vista Home Premium, 4G mem, 250HDD, 32bit x86) Norton 360 v4
I also ran a Root analyzer deep scan Spybot S&D tool) and it shows all kids of things, for example
:: RootAlyzer ResultsFile:"No admin in ACL","C:\Users\All Users\Pure Networks\Log\logfile.nmapp_exe.txt"
If someone can help I have several log files I can post.
Thanks in advance, jack

Try resetting the Firewall settings. You can find the option to reset in Advanced Settings for Smart Firewall. If the problem persists, you can try to flush your DNS and resetting the winsock.
1. Click Start > Run, type ipconfig /flushdns and click OK.
2. Click Start > Run, type cmd and click OK.
3. in the command prompt, type the following and press Enter after each line:
netsh int ip reset resetlog.txt [Enter]
netsh winsock reset [Enter]
