I am unable to load my google mail page and google maps. It goes to a page that says "loading..." and just hangs there. This happens only on my laptop, I can access it on other computers. Ive tried to load it in Firefox and IE. I have run several spyware programs and virus scans and nothing seems to be picked up. Anyone have any ideas???

Delete Google cookies and try again...possible corruption in current cookies, especially if this is only website with problems.

Is Google the only web site you cannot access?

Try this:
Go to the Control Panel then Network Connections.
Click once on your active Connection.
From the menu on the left, select Repair This Connection.
Try to connect to Google.
Chaos reigns within.
Reflect, repent, and reboot.
Order shall return.

Yes, it seems to be only the GMail section of google once I log in, and the google maps section (I cant load the map part but I can search for directions. I can log onto Google and search fine. This happens in both my browsers. All other websites are working fine it seems. I am able to use this site perfectly and I have access to my network.

I tried the repair thing you mentioned. Didn't work either. Im pretty competent with computers, however this one baffles me?!?

Hello hozzi19,

Perchance, do you have javascripts blocked through an add-on, extension, firewall, or other security program? I have NoScript on my Firefox browser, and I find that I have to allow scripts from maps.google.com to let the map sites work. With gmail, I simply use the basic HTML version. In order to use the Standard Version I'd have to allow scripts from mail.google.

Would the Java effect both my IE and Firefox browsers??? How would I allow scripts to my browsers. I cant log into my account to even try and use the HTML version.

Hello hozzi19,

Javascripts are not the same as Java. I have Java disabled in my browser, but allow Javascripts, though I have them blocked with third party software and create a white list for those sites I allow them on.

Javascripts do affect both browsers. Both ZA firewall pro version and Sunbelt Personal Firewall Pro version allow the user to block javascripts, and this affects all installed browsers. However, if you haven't installed 3rd party software to do this, then that isn't the answer.

You've tried clearing the cookies. Have you tried clearing cache and temporary files? I find that clearing these sometimes resolves such issues as you are having.

Thanks for all the ideas, I finally solved the problem. It was a conflict with my antivirus settings preventing certain things from loading. I have GDATA AntivirusKit and sometimes it "over" analyzes things. I changed a few of the scanning options and voihalah!

Hello hozzi19,

I'm glad you got the problem sorted out. Can you tell us what settings you had to change? Other folks with the same problem might benefit from your solution.
