Question about Microsoft Windows XP Home Edition
I keep getting the message the connection was reset while loading web pages. Even when updating Avast I can get "the connection was interrupted . Any easy fixes?
Is it all websites or just some. Sometime this isn't a client based issue, but a problem with the requested web server. If its just a few, and they aren't mainstream sites, its doubtful the issue is with your workstation. If its more, install a second browser and determine if its still occurring. From there, its either one of two things.
1. Network - reset the router and unplug your modem for 10-15 seconds. From there test again, if no change then its client side.
2. Find an on-demand AV and install it. MSE is good and generally does a good job of finding the issue. If no results, download spybot, its likely that a piece of spyware is trying to redirect you to another site and is broken. Hence the connection resets.

It seems more like a browser issue. Did you try another browser or jus Internet Explorer (IE). Another easy fix would be to turn off your pc, then turn off router and/or modem.
At this point, if your connection is "wired", please disconnect the ethernet cable from the back of the computer. If you use a wireless connection to connect to the internet disregard this step. Reconnect everything and turn power on for router/modem, then turn on your pc. Try again to load a page after that. Regards.
