Hey, all. I've been having this issue for about a week now, and would really appreciate any help/advice. I think it may be a virus, but I'm not sure.

I'm using a Mac OS X 10.5.8, and here's what's happening:

While browsing sites, some webpages won't load correctly. Sometimes it'll just load a page of html codes, borked layouts, or mixes of both. Also, there are times when it'll load an image strangely, like there'll be random discolored lines or dots in it, or it'll only load half-way, if at all. It's doing this on Google Chrome, Firefox, and Safari. I've tried temporarily connecting to another wifi network, just in case the problem was somehow coming from my router, but nothing changed.

Here are some examples of what I'm seeing:

I've tried uninstalling and reinstalling Chrome, running a couple of virus scanners (iAnti-Virus and MacScan), cleared my cache, but nothing's helped. I've looked at these sites on other computers and they're just fine, so I'm pretty sure it's not the sites themselves...

So. Yeah. :s

Thanks for any help!

How did you clear your cache?

I entered "dscacheutil -flushcache" in Terminal. There's also an "Empty the Cache" option on Google Chrome that I've used a couple of times.
