PC freezes when connected to internet

Unread postby uberduder » January 5th, 2012, 6:51 pm

Need a bit of help here. My PC began freezing the other day as soon as it's connected to the internet. Turn my router (& internet) off, and the PC eventually comes back to life.

Strangely enough, the PC doesn't freeze up when in Safe Mode with Networking where I can browse the internet OK. When the PC does freeze I can't see any particular proccess hogging the CPU (whose activity isn't high anyway).

The reason I suspected a virus was that for some reason all my system recovery points had gone. I know certain viruses can do this.

I've installed 3 different AV products done full scans and they've found nothing.

I've installed 3 different anti rootkit products and they too have found nothing.

So I'm not sure it's a virus/malware.

Attached are DDS and HijackThis logs.

All help much appreciated.

Posting Logs as Attachments

May I draw your attention to the topic: ALL USERS OF THIS FORUM MUST READ THIS FIRST, which you should have read before posting for help.

The instructions for running DDS found HERE, state how we need you to post the logs, so we can help you.

The section here explains why you should not post attachments unless the helper assisting you requests that you do so.

If you still require assistance, please start a new topic and copy and paste your DDS logs (DDS.txt and Attach.txt) and wait for a new helper. Thank you for your understanding.
