Ok, My internet explorer (beda 8) and Firefox (newest version) will not load Myspace music or video but will let me upload pics when I click the upload photo problem link. At the bottom right hand side on both browsers it shows that it's still loading. I can let it load for hours but it never goes any further than that.

On any other site I can't upload anything except with my Gmail account and some sites won't let me post in forums.
For a while it wouldn't let me log into Myspace with Firefox and then a couple of weeks ago it started letting me.

Now more specifically with my problem, originally I could get the players working as long as I used Firefox and deleted all history and cookies first. But when I logged in the video and song players don't even show up and I was fine with that.

NOW most recently the players won't even load weather or not I am logged in or if I delete history and cookies. My upload problem is the same. I'm tired of trying to figure this one out on my own.


For a while I have had networking problems with this computer. I had to add the isp and all that other networking crap manually. So the problem could also be in networking as well.


System:
Microsoft Windows XP
Professional
Version 2002
Service pack 2

Dell DIMENSION DIM2400
Intel Pentium 4 CPU 2.20GHz
2.19 GHz, 256MB of RAM

Get rid of the BETA first

Please note that this program is a pre-release beta version of a product and not completely tested to ensure its stability or reliability.

What is beta software?

After an initial round of in-house testing, software publishers often release new programs to be tested by the public. These pre-release versions are called beta software, usually denoted by a "b" in the version number, e.g., Netscape Navigator 2.0b5. Since the publisher couldn't possibly test the software under all possible conditions, it is reasonable to expect that wider use of the software may uncover problems that were not discovered during in-house testing. The publisher expects to be notified when users find such problems so that the program can be fixed before its official release.

In general, you should expect to run into bugs whenever using any piece of beta software. These bugs may range in severity from minor features that don't work to problems that cause your computer to crash. You should decide whether the benefit of new features in a beta program outweighs the risk of program instability before choosing to use a piece of beta software. You should also be aware that UITS will not have thoroughly tested beta software, nor will the software be guaranteed by its maker, so you should not expect the same level of support as you would receive for an official release version of the program.

The goal of a beta program is to collect information regarding the performance, quality, stability, and functionality of new products in order to iron out the bugs before they are released to the general public. If you choose to use a beta program, you use it at your own risk.

I removed the beda version. Problem is still there. My problem occurred before I added the beda version. In fact, When I added the beda version I was able to log in on all my blog sites including myspace. I've scanned with malware and avira. nothing shows up.

I doubt if you're infected, but we can run a scan to double check before we move you to a different forum
----------------

Please download Malwarebytes Anti-Malware and save it to your desktop.
  • Make sure you are connected to the Internet.
  • Double-click on mbam-setup.exe to install the application.
  • When the installation begins, follow the prompts and do not make any changes to default settings.
  • When installation has finished, make sure you leave both of these checked:
    • Update Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware
    • Launch Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware
  • Then click Finish.
  • MBAM will automatically start and you will be asked to update the program before performing a scan. If an update is found, the program will automatically update itself. Press the OK button to close that box and continue. If you encounter any problems while downloading the updates, manually download them from here and just double-click on mbam-rules.exe to install.
  • On the Scanner tab:
    • Make sure the "Perform Quick Scan" option is selected.
    • Then click on the Scan button.
  • If asked to select the drives to scan, leave all the drives selected and click on the Start Scan button.
  • The scan will begin and "Scan in progress" will show at the top. It may take some time to complete so please be patient.
  • When the scan is finished, a message box will say "The scan completed successfully. Click 'Show Results' to display all objects found".
  • Click OK to close the message box and continue with the removal process.
  • Back at the main Scanner screen, click on the Show Results button to see a list of any malware that was found.
  • Make sure that everything is checked, and click Remove Selected.
  • When removal is completed, a log report will open in Notepad.
  • The log is automatically saved and can be viewed by clicking the Logs tab in MBAM.
  • Copy and paste the contents of that report in your next reply and exit MBAM.
Note: If MBAM encounters a file that is difficult to remove, you may be asked to reboot your computer so it can proceed with the disinfection process. Regardless if prompted to restart the computer or not, please do so immediately. Failure to reboot normally (not into safe mode) will prevent MBAM from removing all the malware. MBAM may make changes to your registry as part of its disinfection routine. If you're using other security programs that detect registry changes, they may alert you after scanning with MBAM. Please permit the program to allow the changes.
