I'm not sure if I have a virus with Google Chrome, but strange things are happening.

When I go to start Google Chrome, everything starts normally. Within 20 min. or so and only on certain sites, certain items(images)that I know are supposed to be there because I test them in Firefox are not in Google Chrome. One thing in particular, is the listen live button on a radio station's webpage. I'm not sure if I can allow the posting of that webpage but if need be I will. It shows up fine in Firefox. the system is not responding slowly, so everything seems to be okay on that end. Is it normal for certain Internet browsers to have these types of issues?

Another thing about my setup-I have a Toshiba satellite L875 with four gigs of RAM and a 640 GB hard drive. The only real intensive program I run is the program called Dragon NaturallySpeaking which is allowing me to type this out as you know without using the keyboard. I wouldn't think that this program would be causing the problems with Google Chrome, but I could be mistaken. Also, it's not a real big problem, it's more of a nuisance. I run Norton 360 antivirus and malware bites professional. I had combo fix on the computer from before and I do have a log from it if you would like to see it. (I had no idea it was not supposed to be run before hand but in the future I will know that)

Another thing is, sometimes the page for WFAA here in Dallas does not show images on the front page. I just went to it using Google Chrome and it appears for now that issue has been resolved but I will let you know.

Sometimes the easiest fixes go overlooked. Realized I had Adblock plus and after disabling it, all is well.
