To figure that one out I'd have to know how your internet goes, through a router, through a central server, or just straight through to your pc? And did this occur just now or has it always been there?

*edit* And what's important too is, are the websites your trying to visit in any way 18+? (Like Weed-related, porn, nudity, violence, etc...)

I'm gonna be back in like 20 mins, I'll try to help you then...

Will ISPs ever report activity such as downloading 150GIGs of media from P2P and torrents within a short period of time (1/2 a month)? Is there ever a concern in general with downloading media?

Hey, anybody who has Norton might have got a warning about a new virus called : Trojan.Peacomm.

Should i be worried about this, and if so where can i get something to protect me from it. I tried "Protect me now" button and liveupdate on norton but didnt do the trick.
