    This is may be problem due to your antivirus ans firewall issue so check it.

    You have a hijacker, malware, spyware or parasites on your system causing this problem.  In addition to running your updated anti-virus program, you should do the following to be sure none of these are present on your system.
    Some variants of malware can replicate themselves over and over if not removed properly.  Please follow all instructions carefully to be sure your system is thoroughly cleaned:

    Dealing with Unwanted Spyware and Parasites:
    Be sure to run CWShredder, Ad-aware and Spybot. Also be sure to use the HijackThis.  Please do not post your log to this
    newsgroup, but to the SpywareInfo or the Aumha HiJackThis forums, to allow the experts there to evaluate your log and advise you of the necessary steps to clean your system.

    CAUTION!!!!!  Before you try to remove spyware using any of the programs below, download a copy of LSPFIX from any of the following sites:

    (if your OS is Win2k or XP) The process of removing certain malware may kill your internet connection. If this should occur, this program, LSPFIX, will enable you to regain your connection.

    Also, get a copy of WINSOCKXPFIX available at:

    WinsockXP Fix- WinXP

    Also, with instructions, at
    From LavaSoft- all versions of Windows-
    also ....
    (NOTE:  It is reported that in XP SP2, the command netsh winsock reset
    will fix this problem without the need for these programs.)

    or ........
