Ok, my internet connection has started playing up in the last week or so and I can't work out why.
Basically, http access is very hit and miss. I can get pop3, ftp, online gaming and torrents all working fine but http is driving me nuts.
The problem with http is that, the first time I try to load a webpage, sometimes the 2nd, after a period of inactivity I get a 403 error but after that the web works fine until I have another long period of inactivity and then the same thing happens again.
It does this in all browsers - I have 5 installed on my PC - and doesn't seem limited to any specific site either so can't see either of those being the root cause.
I have a permanently connected broadband connection that was rock solid until this issue surfaced so does anyone have any idea why I'm getting this issue?
Ran a scan, removed the threats identified and then loaded several web browsers.
The first 2, rather than 1, sites that I tried to access came up with 403 errors for the first 2 times I tried to access them before they would load properly.
Does anyone else have any suggestions and, more importantly, have any help they could give me as to why this is happening? I'd like to know why, rather than just running yet another scan, so that I have an idea what to look for the next time this should happen should it ever happen again.
