First time poster - from a quick review seems to be a great community and great to know that this level of support is available online!
This problem started a couple of days ago and has steadily got worse.
When trying to open commonly used websites - Such as google, bbc, facebook etc. I am getting an error saying
Content Encoding Error - The page you are trying to view cannot be shown because it uses an invalid or unsupported form of compression.
I can't imagine there is actually a problem with those sites, and I have found that sometimes it will go through ok - but not often. When i find this problem happens every single time is when I use the mini google search tool in the top right corner of firefox.
I have also had some cases where clicking on a regular link was redirecting me to lots of adverts and adult sites - however this seems to have been cleared up following a run of malwarebytes.
I am using Windows XP Service pack 3 Main browser is Firefox - recently upgraded to 4. Have AVG Free addition installed, Spybot Search and destroy and ad-aware. Recently installed malwarebytes following read a post on this forum where it solved the problem for someone having a similar fault.
Hope that is a good start in terms of info - if someone could please let me know what info / logs i need to provide to make it clearer, possibly with some simple instructions on how to produce and upload the logs I would be very appreciative.
