    This is going to sound like I am making it up...But whenever I access certain porn sites (fratmentv.com and xtube to be specific), my internet connection is shut down.

    I've done this randomly throughout the day and night...not that I'm a total porn freak, that's just when I happen to be on the internet.

    It happens on multiple browsers.

    Everything internet based shuts down including IRC and my AIM account.

    It's not my ISP because my PSP has the ability to use my Wifi to load a browser, and I've looked up both of these sites using this method to test my internet.

    So, my internet is being shut down due to porn...It's not the browser, user account, ISP, or just the browser alone.


    ...What is going on?

    80% Gay AND IN NEBRASKA??? Oh boy...no wonder the government is f*cking with your internet access...here's a test...go to Google.Com and type in..."HJKLHJKH>HUJHI" and see what you get. It's a wikipedia general inquiry but if it comes back in gibberish? You're in trouble and PROBABLY on a government watchlist...don't file your taxes quite yet unless you want to throw you money away. Uffda....

    it is possible that they have either bandwidth heavy content or they have some crazy encyption that is bringing it down. Both are working fine for me.

    It has nothing to do with the internet. Maybe you have one of those net nanny things on your computer and you don't know it.

    Free antivirus - Avira AntiVir
    SUPERAntiSpyware.com - AntiAdware, AntiSpyware, AntiMalware!
    Malwarebytes.org

    Also for extra safety browse the internet ONLY IN FIREFOX with this addon installed:

    https://addons.mozilla.org/firefox/addon/722

    Scripts are very dangerous. Only allow scripts from trusted sites.

    Download and install the free programs that I have given you. Be sure to update them.

    THEN (after you update them) restart the PC and press F8 repeatedly
    Choose Safe Mode when prompted (use arrow keys and enter to select)
    Login to Safe Mode

    Run the three programs above and delete anything it finds.

    It's not the ISP. I can get it from the same internet source using my PSP. And I doubt I'd have a NetNanny...The mother would be a little more upset than usual if she found out I was using the family computer to look up gay porn.
