I ended up SCREWING myself!! LOL I was so pissed off I don't know what I was clicking and blocking and deleting. All I know is NOW I can barely be on the internet for 30min without it kicking me off. Then the diagnose the problem screen pops up. I go through that and then I'm able to get back on the internet (for another 30 or so minutes before it happens again).

I went to internet options/ advanced/ reset to default settings because another friend told me to try that. It didn't work. I've called COX and they said they don't see a problem. So I think in the mist of all my "mad" clicking I shut off / on something that shouldn't have been done.

To add insult to injury he has absolutely NO problem watching the "questionable videos" while I can't even handle business online without getting booted off!!

ANY advice will be greatly appreciated.

I think you need to slow down, take a step back, and give us more detail.

What OS. What browser. What blocking or filtering software did you use?

It sounds like IE, but we also need to know what version.

It sounds like Internet Explorer is hosed. Try downloading and installing Mozilla Firefox or Google Chrome and see if they work. If they do, its something in IE. While you're at it, you might want to grab MalwareBytes (malwarebytes.org) and let it scan your computer in case one of those "questionable videos" did something to your computer.

I had the same thing happen to me (though I hadn't been clicking, blocking or deleting). Turned out the modem was stuffed. Could that be the problem?

I like how he blames "his friend" for his porno virus which he probably has now.
Heh

Anyways did you fix your internet connection?
