Question about Microsoft Windows XP Professional for PC

Some web pages never load, others do


I've been having a problem with my pc (running Windows XP Pro) where sites that used to load, will now say "connecting to.." and eventually give a message that site cannot be loaded. I've tried disabling my firewall, connecting directly to cable modem (bypassing router), IE and Firefox - same problem. Computer is hard wired (not wireless) to router. Note that other computers on the same router do not have this problem. I've also tried a bootable Linux(Ubuntu) disk and all websites load correctly. I've tried entering the IP address of DNS servers, but no change.

Here's a partial list of sites that don't load: (did until about two months ago)

Re: Some web pages never load, others do

The first thing I suspect is a malware infection (browser hijack).
Please try spybot and adaware.
Then get hijackthis and scan. Check for any funny looking entries and delete them.
Also, Go to tools, internet options, and delete browsing history (IE).
Go to tools, internet options ,connections, lan settings and make sure that nothing is checked.
please keep us posted.

When you are at a page you wish to save, go to File/Save As. While saving, make sure that the "Save As Type" has Web Page, Complete selected. It will save an html file, but it will also save all of the other files in a folder in the same directory with the same name as the html file.

Hi, Have you checked your security permissions on the 2003 IIS ?

Are the users using it as Intranet or Internet?

Is the site internal/external or possibly firewalled with rules restricting correct port operation and access permissions?
