Hi,
I am having problems with my computer...I am having intermittent (and growing ever frequent!!) problems with accessing any and all webpages. At first, I thought it was just a Mozilla issue, but the same problems occur in Google Chrome and IE. I will type in a URL and press enter and sometimes it will take forever to load, and if I click on the link again, it will bring it up instantly. It seems as if it is stalling. And other times, if I click on the link for a second time, it will say "done" on the bottom left hand side, but it will certainly not be done! I have been having this problem for weeks now and it is driving me crazy!
I have run Spybot, Adaware, Spyware Doctor, Malwarebytes, my AVG antivirus scan, and the free Symantec one on the website. Nothing has been found wrong! (I had MyWaySA found on Malwarebytes which removed it but my problem did not fix itself).
I tried restoring my computer to 4 different restore points but they were all unsuccessful.

I tried uninstalling ZoneAlarm thinking maybe that was the problem, but it was not.
Do you have any suggestions?

Okay, this is the EXACT issue I had in the past.

I recommend trying this because your symptoms are the exact same as mine when I had this issue.

Unfortunately, I did disable the DNS client AND updated my Zone Alarm, and I am still having a ton of problems with my web pages "stalling" , not loading completely or at all. Does anyone have any other ideas?

Why not try turning of Zone Alarm on a couple of the slow but trusted sites to see if it has any effect, I bring this up as there was some talk about ZA having some sort of timer that can effect getting on sites.

Well ... whenever you find out let us know what the problem is, because mine has been doing the same thing and nobody seems to know what the issue is. I have a post in the hijack logs thread as I was told. So I dunno *LoL*. Really annoying problem.

If you have the McAfee SiteAdvisor toolbar, disable it, it has been known to cause these issues with its newest update.

ZoneAlarm and read about that whole zonealarm IE thing and I did everything with that and still didnt work. So I dunno. This is an issue nobody knows how to fix. I really dont wanna Format my computer and put everything back on.

Disabling the DNS doesnt work.

Do you have a very large HOSTS file?
  • Click on Start then Run and type: %windir%\system32\drivers\etc\
  • Open the following file in Notepad: C:\WINDOWS\system32\drivers\etc\hosts
Does it seem overly large to you?

This is happening on my two laptops (one XP, one Vista) and also on the XP desktop. Firefox, IE, Chrome--happens at home or other places--nothing seems to correct it.
