Does anyone know why, when I go to ESPN.com, I keep getting kicked out of the website and I also seem to be having some problems on yahoo's website. This problem just seemed to start happening the other day. I don't seem to have problems with other websites. Thanks for any help

Hi derek17,

Redirects and problems accessing past accessible websites could be a sign of a malware infection. I recommend following BC's malware removal guide. Run the virus and malware scans and see if that helps.

Let us know how things go...

ps... one more thing. Try cleaning out your cookies and temporary internet files. You can find this under the tool bar - Tools - Internet Options.

I agree with riqel about the malware/spyware possibility.

Redirection is usually an indication of virus/malware problems.

Also espn.com > goes to espn.go.com for their actual site automatically.

Run ad-aware or spybot or avg antispyware at least once a week.

It would help our understanding of your problem if you were to describe exactly what is happening at ESPN, and what you mean by "having some problems" at Yahoo. Examples would narrow the problem, as would knowing what browser you are using.

Sorry, but I didn't want to be too long winded, anyway I am using IE7 and when I go to ESPN, my window closes as soon as I go there. Then I'm use Yahoo for fantasy sports and when I go there to check stuff, after being on it for a minute or so. I get the pop window that IE has encountered a proble and needs to close and then asks if I want to send an error report.

thanks everybody for their help

Rigel, thanks for the advice but I still seem to be having problems, although my computer does seem to run faster. Anyone have any other words of wisdom, otherwise I'll probalby have to take my computer in somewhere.

Try disabling the Yahoor bar see whether this makes any sence. Also check whether your Java is upto the latest version. ( presently is 1.6) What also could help is that after you have tried again and gets redirected or shut down you immediately go to eventviewer ( START RUN type eventvwr) and look for white crosses in red dots and post the error messages overhere..

Before taking your computer to the shop and spending a lot of money, see what happens when you visit these sites using another browser, such as Firefox, or what happens when you reinstall IE 6.

Hey guys, sorry to keep bothering you but I am still having problems and I wonder if maybe it isn't IE7 that is causing the problems. Anyway I did run the event viewer and under applications I had errors

one said fault bucket 380508757; and the other said " faulting application iexplore.exe.version 7.0.6000.16414, faulting module unknown, version 0.0.0.0, fault address 0x000000"

does this help anyone - is maybe my problem IE7?

thank again
