Can you help, for some reason when I'm browsing the web and i click on a link i tend to get a time out box.
I'm using FireFox, I've done a virus scan and a trojan remover even cleaned my registry. I'm not sure if there is something that is making this happen.

I m not running anything else so i don't understand why this is happening. Is it possible that I've got malware that is preventing me to browse the web? sometimes it would be OK but a lot of the times it is not.
So I've got to keep on pressing try again until eventually it will open the page i want.

Do you have that same problem with Internet Explorer?

Try clearing your Web browser cache. Clearing the cache forces the browser to load the latest versions of Web pages and programs you visit.

For Firefox:
1. Click Tools, select Options and click the Privacy Icon.
2. Under the Privacy tab, click "Settings", make sure "Cache" is checked and click Ok.
3. Click "Clear Now".
4. Click Ok.
5. Exit and relaunch the browser.
