When I try to use applications like ssh, ssh-keygen, git, snmpwalk, snmpnext etc. they all just hangs and I am not able to stop them through CTRL-C. I need to use Task Manager to kill the application (kill -9 does not work either). But if I run the application from gdb (like 'gdb ssh-keygen' and the 'run') they seem to work. Most applications seems to work as expected, but not the ones I have listed (and maybe some more applications as well).

Please follow the instructions at the below link. These include
generating a diagnostics report that will allow folk to identify or
rule out most of the problems other folk have been suggesting might be
an issue.
