Last Modified: 2013-12-04
After approx 3 min on the internet, I can no longer view pages although I am still connected to the net. nor can I receive/send e-mails,  I always receive the "page cannot be displayed" pag. after I exit out of IE and re=open IE the problem remains the same. I need to restart windows XP in order to close the connection log back in and get another 3 mins on the internet again.
This occurs regardless whether I use a dial-up modem or the LAN
I have the feeling that winssl.exe may have something to do with it but cannot find enough info about it

could someone please help

it can be that youre infected with an worm or something that is eating up the whole socket buffer while scanning the whole internet for new targets...

you should get a good virii scanner and scan your pc..
i would suggest kasperskys if you need one
