Forced to hit Re-Load to view any website

Specs: Windows Vista

I am using Vista, and just in the last couple months I have been forced to re send information to view any sort of website. I use Firefox mainly, but I have found this to be the case for both Chrome and IE. Came to frustrating end when I could not load a Youtube video to watch all the way through. It seems like for every website it just stops loading within 1-3 seconds which is what it used to take to load the entire site I was getting at. I have tried to reset my browsers but it still seems like I cant get anywhere with one click anymore. Thanks in advance!

Try running a scan with malwarebytes, make sure you update and remove selected when finished....if you can click that far.

Also would not hurt to run a rootkit scan. That is a good starting point to try and clean it up and then maybe check hardware if the problem is not resolved.

Yes, sure, check for Malware.

Another possible cause is that your connection has slowed right down. The refresh might be helping because the website has then been cached

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks

Just ran the Anti-Malware, came back with none detected. Looking for an Anti-Rootkit killer. I dont believe its a connection issue, I have been using a laptop and that works fine as well as a PS3 over same internet connection.

As several browsers are affected it might be a connection problem on that particular computer.

Bit of a long shot but are you using a large hosts file? If you don't know what I mean then the answer is probably no.

Try this anyway:
Type cmd in the Run box and hit Enter key.

In the black box that arrives type ipconfig /flushdns and hit Enter key.
Note the single space after ipconfig.

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks
