I really don't feel like playing with this problem. Am still battling the NirCum thingie..... but now I can load Mozilla but most frequented websites (aol.com for mail, legacy .com, charter.net, usatoday etc) will not load. All just time put..yet the little loading circle keeps rolling.......
I can get into Facebook but the circle keeps rolling
Same with a few other sites.....but it shows continual loading

I ran Malware MBM_ ( no malware found) and spybot( nothing)and antispyware ( adware stuff but that's it)and sophos( picked up teh usual Nircum but nothing else). I even loaded rkill and ran that but nothing came up
also did the atfcleaner but didn't help

Is something going on...beside my loss of sanity?

Dell 8300 dimension, Mozilla Firefox is browser.......I use AOL for email Charter.com is our provider.

Sigh

Open command prompt and type the following command ipconfig /all and hit Enter. Then right-click, click Select All and hit Enter. Then paste the results to your next response.

From my limited experience, that tells me you aren't connected to the internet. One more test please:

Open command prompt again and type ping google.com and hit enter. Then post the results in your next response.

Sounds to me like a firewall or antivirus causing the issue. What programs like these do you have installed and running?

OKay As I mentioned I have AntiMalware (installed when I got the Av suite virus) AntiSpyware (same deal) SpyBot, Sophos, ATF Cleaner (same deal)

It's weird as its so sporadic
I have registry booster installed and cleaned that up but it didn't help

frustrating
Thanks for your efforts

Try accessing Safe Mode With Networking and see if the problem persists. If it doesn't, that practically guarantees my diagnose.

Also, as a side note, NEVER use a registry cleaner no matter what they claim to do. If it messes things up too much, you'll be left with a really expensive paperweight.

Okay I goofed but it worked
I hit F12 and not F8..........When in F12 I hit choice 8, boot to utility part.....
Firefox loaded and I was able to get into websites.

I see there is a red shield with an X on it down by the time (lower right hand corner) and it reads Sophos might be turned off click here to check.but I'm not clicking. Could that be remnants of Av Suite??

What should I do..keep booting in F12 or try another fix?
Many thanks
Off to bed
Cheers
Snowy

Try booting into Safe Mode With Networking by tapping F8. Let me know if the problem persists in that environment.

HI
okay, safe mode.EEEKKK

I was able to log into AOL mail but the side screen showed connection timed out. it listed "todaypage.mail.aol.com" the one that gives you the headers for news, timed out. I was able to open an email, read it hit reply but when I tried to type everything froze. Everything. No mouse, no keyboard response, nothing.
I had to turn off the machine.
When i started it again, in regular mode, the Mozilla screen was a different size and I had to pull out the margins.

I am able to get into email in regular mode now, and just replied fine. Not sure what's going on nor where.
Stupid puter.

Thanks for the efforts.

PS Just tried to get int AOl mail site and other websites again that were working but once again they time out! Double EEKKK)

<<Am still battling the NirCum thingie...>>

I guess that I'm remiss...what are you referring to with that comment?

Well...you seem to have possible malware problems and you've used registry cleaners...two strikes against the system functioning properly, IMO.

Have you tried uninstalling then reinstalling your browser...or using the IE browser for comparative purposes?

Are your browsers the only aspect of your system that is apparently malfunctioning?

You are certainly connected to the internet - the successful ping proves that. However, something is either blocking port 80, possibly all TCP traffic.


Open Internet Explorer. Go to tools> internet options. Click the "Connections" tab and click "Lan Settings". See if the box next to "Use a proxy server for your LAN..." is ticked. If it is, uncheck it, close and restart your browsers, and now try to surf.

TY "Ham" for your input.

Okay so I should remove the registry booster I have loaded? Thanks not a good thing to have?

The NirCmb (I forgot the correct lettering) showed up when I first had problems with the AV Suite Virus. I consistently get a Sophos warning about Adware..I seem to get up to 100 hits when running the computer. Its basically an annoyance more than anything.

I tried IE and had the same Time Out problem. But only certain websites. It seems if I have computer turned off, then turn it on, I can access say, AOL.com for mail but when I try later (with leaving computer running) it times out.

Only other symptoms are on start up the "Windows Security Alert red shield and bubble show up at bottom right hand side of screen. It reads that Sophos is turned of and my computer may be at risk, but that's not true. Sophos is running.

I have Firefox 3.1. I should uninstall that and reinstall?

I apologize for seeming naive, I am far from a "geek" and am learning as I go along. Thank you for your patience.

Computer load speed or shut down speed can be an issue as well.

HUGE Thanks
Snowy
