What browser are you using? It might be worth trying an alternative browser, such as Firefox, just to prove whether or not it is a browser issue.

As for malware, it depends what you tried. if you didn't at least try this freebie on it then do so:

AdwCleaner:
https://toolslib.net/downloads/view...
(blue "Download Now" button on right).
Download and "Save" the file somewhere. Go to the saved file then double click it to run the program. Use the "Scan" button, followed by the "Clean" button..

If it finds anything please copy/paste the log on here. If you lose the ADW log you can find it as a text file in the ADWCleaner folder directly off the system drive root (usually C).

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks

IE8 is the last version of Internet Explorer available for Vista but it hasn't been supported by Microsoft in over a year. It's a huge security risk & many websites no longer display properly when using it. Ideally, you should replace Vista with a more modern OS, but in the interim, try a different browser. However, even the alternate browsers such as Firefox & Google Chrome are abandoning Vista.

Ice Dragon may hold you over for a while but don't expect long term support.
