my computer won't load some websites

November 10, 2010 at 15:00:10
Specs: Windows XP
I know this is really retarded and most of the time i'm really good with computers but i'm really frustrated. I use Hughs net which is pretty fast for dial up, I even play WOW with my other computer. And I use google chrome. My computer is fairly new, but it won't load some websites, takes a lot of refreshing, and re-downloading. Which keeps happening more frequently. I know it doesn't have any viruses, and everything is checked and accounted for but I don't know.

nincompoop, IMHO, the keyword here is 'some'. All makes me think your security is set too high, but some sounds to me like a nasty (virus, worm,trojan, etc). Be aware that a virus and a Trojan are similar, but not the same. Many times, an AV detects one it can't clean, other times, it gets missed entirely.
If you need to clean one, Superantispyware (info only. I’m not paid for recommendation. WARNING! FYI, a full scan on mine takes over an hour.) can do the job and you can get it free @:
among other places. They have a Vista compatible version if needed. Dunno about Windows 7 or later.
If it turns out that you need to use it, be sure to update Superantispyware prior to running and disable 'restore' (restart after cleaning) so the nasty doesn't get put back. They just released a new update recently and it changes all the time. Things are in a constant state of flux.
The restore thing is critical. May not be your deal at all, but won't hurt anything to try

I am having a similar issues. We have 2 laptops and 2 desktops. None of them will load facebook or msn as of today. It worked fine yesterday. I cleared cookies, ran virus and ran the superantispyware I even reformated my computer. Still everything else loads just fine. But none of the computers will allow me to go to those two sites. What is wrong? What do I do?
