A few weeks ago, I had issues regarding trojans in my pc. One of your
moderators, Cretemonster, helped me to rid my pc of all the malware
problems with having me do several online scans that eventually
totally cleaned out all the garbage on my computer.
Since the malware issues were completed, I am having one problem
regarding logging on, that being , 8 out of 10 times I try to log on to a
site, like my yahoo mail, I get cant find server messages.
Once I hit the go button or refresh, it usually allows the site to appear, but
a few days ago, I was downloading ad-aware updates and, during that
time, I could not log on anywhere until the update was complete.
I'm running dell winxp (a 2 month old pc) and both Avast and Zone Alarm
run security while online. I'm also on dialup, but was not having this problem
before the trojans hit. Many times it seems, by watching the Z/A icon, that
Z/A "stalls", kind of like it's holding log completion and the connection
icon shows no transferring of signal.
Would you have any suiggestions, with my having to get rid of security, that I
might check to fix this problem? Many thanks for your time.
