Some sites I have problems with :
-Either cant load at all, or take several mins to load(random here.. just listing examples- most from my rounds of trying to make sure my system was clean)
Many of the help forums are loading crazy slow as well (including bleeping)
I have no problem with sites like:
~ all government sites I've tried are fine
~my banking site was fine too
I'm also having issues downloading some things. (For example I cannot download from java.com.. it turns into a cannot display web page) Many of the cleaning software mentioned below too multiple attempts and alternate sites to get them onto my machine.
I also noticed that my AVG is not updating.. it can't seem to connect to the internet. Don't know if this is related or not.
Things done to resolve this:
- Turned off Firewall to verify this isnt blocking anything
- Tested cable/ISP -verified all connects are fine and fast
- Ran AVG scan
- Ran Spybot
- Ran Ccleaner
- Ran CWshredder
- Ran SuperantiSpyware
- Ran Adaware
- Ran winsockxpfix
- Ran Combofix
- Reset FF and IE to defaults and checked secure settings
I use Firefox as my default browser but this is happening in both IE and FF. Any thoughts or suggestions??
Platform: Windows XP SP2 (WinNT 5.01.2600)
Default browser: Firefox 18.104.22.168 back up IE 7.0.5730.11
