Help with Hijackthis log

Can anyone please help?
I am having masses of 'Page cannot be displayed'
messages and very frequent internet connection dropouts. I have done many things to remedy this but still no luck. The idea now is that it is my firewall. It is Zonealarm free.I have tried posting at ZA forums, no response, and the technical support won't help on a free download only the premium products.
The first remedy is to go to your computer and click:
Start>Run>command> then type ipconfig/all
and get the DNS Servers and DHCP servers and
manually enter them into zonealarm.
I got the DNS servers no problem, but the only reference in the command window to DHCP is:
Dhcp Enabled NO
I feel that if this is not enabled then it cannot be working, therefore causing my problems.My OS is XP SP1. Another spanner has been thrown in the works, because whilst researching this, I read some info in regards to DHCP, and the info said that one of the draw backs with XP is that you cannot disable DHCP which is very confusing as mine is not enabled. Can anyone tellme how to enable this and whether it is going to make a difference to my problems.
Since entering the DNS servers into zonealarm, the 'Page cannot be displayed' messages have stopped, but the frequent dropouts are still happening.
Many thanks and any help much appreciated.

Hijackthis has it's own locale.....

over here:

I might run the usual online pest removers first. Once clean, if possible, an update to SP2 should be completed.

I've found a clean install of XP will resolve most networking issues when coupled with an updated firmware for your router.

A hunch....

Assuming your computer is free of viruses and parasites, you may have a bad line - whether dialup, DSL or cable. Line noise corrupts signals and causes disconnection. Request help from your ISP. Also, make sure your connection settings, as given by your ISP, are correct. (IP, DNS, etc.)

Don't ask me how it got there, I typed 'Help with DHCP
Windows XP SP1'. I would not post a HT log for anyone to fiddle with, and as you can see there is no log posted. A problem with this web site I suspect.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
