I use firefox as my browser. Lately some websites either won't load or take in upwards of 20 minutes. My virus scanner keeps catching virus's. I have run my virus scanner(CA VIRUS SCANNER), ad-aware, spybot, spysubtract, and superantispyware, they all cuaght something the first run through but now come up clean. i then browsed the forums here and found a similar post. I tried some of the suggestions there, which were to repair my network connection in the control panel, and to set firefox's network connection to autodetect, these seem to have helped but some sites are still slow particularly pogo games(my wife)pogo.com loads up fine it's the popup game windows that have the problem. thanks for any help.

Hello and welcomPosted Image
please advise which windows version you are running and which version of Adaware have you used and which of spybot?

when you say you are getting pop up windows, are these part OF the page you are accessing or are they signs of infection?

Are you getting error messages or blank pages when the sites don't load?

Start with this:

Close all running programs
Click Start
Click Run
Type in cmd
Click OK
In the window that opens, type in regsvr32 actxprxy.dll (note the space between 32 and actxprxy)
Hit the Enter key
Now type in regsvr32 urlmon.dll (note the space between 32 and urlmon)
Hit the Enter key
Type in exit
Hit the Enter key

Now open Internet Explorer, and try opening some links.

If no luck, see if this helps:

adaware se is no longer a viable program and has been withdrawn

when you are ready you will need to uninstall adaware se and install adaware 2007

ok so i ran ad aware 2007 and it found 274 infections, i deleted them and the problem with pogo was still there.
After looking around some more on the internet i found a forum where someone was having much the same problem, they suggested something may be wrong with java or microsoft virtual machine. I reinstalled java, no help. Then i found a place to download the last released version of microsoft virtual machine(they don't put it out anymore because of legal reasons) reinstalled it and voila it worked. All the games from pogo now load in a short amount of time, no more white screen for 20 minutes. thank you guys for all your help.
