    what OS you running on this system mate? bet its windows vista if so

    Disable IPV6


    Copy below text in to notepad and then file save as
    Change the Save as Type to ALL “update.reg”

    [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\Tcpip6\Parameters]
    "DisabledComponents"=dword:000000ff

    Run that and then reboot should fix it

    Temporarily uninstall MBAM if that's what malware thing you installed.

    Reboot, and see if problem persists.

    Yeah the MBAM did that with a work laptop I was trying to sort out.

    Kept locking up after 10 mins or so. Turned out to be MBAM conflicting with F_Secure.

    I know you got rid out f-secure, but maybe some renant was left causing MBAM to glitch.

    I use MBAM at home with NOD no problems tho.

    are you wireless?

    wep or wpa?

    maybe someone is trying to "hack" you, if they are doing it incorrectly it could mean a loss of internet connection

    what about a virus on your pc? some have appeared that can change your router password and dns entries in there
    check them out,

    maybe change your gateway from 192.168.1.1 to 192.168.5.1
