Certain websites wont load, or they take very long to load.

Q: Certain websites wont load, or they take very long to load.

This problem just started happening. It only occurs on this network I have in my home. I have used multiple computers at a different house and the internet is perfect. So I am assuming I have some sort of virus on my network. I need help

Preferred Solution: Certain websites wont load, or they take very long to load.

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

I use firefox as my browser. Lately some websites either won't load or take in upwards of 20 minutes. My virus scanner keeps catching virus's. I have run my virus scanner(CA VIRUS SCANNER), ad-aware, spybot, spysubtract, and superantispyware, they all cuaght something the first run through but now come up clean. i then browsed the forums here and found a similar post. I tried some of the suggestions there, which were to repair my network connection in the control panel, and to set firefox's network connection to autodetect, these seem to have helped but some sites are still slow particularly pogo games(my wife)pogo.com loads up fine it's the popup game windows that have the problem. thanks for any help.

recently websites take long to load and sometimes time out, nothing has really changed in terms of software, and i believe it's a problem for another computer at my house as well, i am connected via ethernet so it's not a wireless hardware issue and my internet connection doesn't drop when the websites time out, and it's not firefox because when i ping via command prompt sometimes the pings time out

i did a traceroute for google and a website i visit regularly, and i noticed that the first trace times out in both occasions, i'm not really familiar with traceroute but i believe the first trace is to the router/modem, however i can ping the router/modem fine and connect to the config via firefox, i have also tried restarting the gateway and the problem still persists

I am using Win 10 and use FF as my browser. I believe that is with Win 10 that this issue started. When surfing the majority of the page loads quickly.(I have a cable connection with 25+Down and 5+Up speed.) The video element of the page (whether it is uTube, slate, salon, reddit, BBC or any site with video element) takes 45-90 seconds to load/play. Also, if it's Flash, I have to "stop plug in" reload and wait more. I believe on uTube the vids play using HTML5 (I think), also with a similar delay. I have extensions installed (adblocker, do not track, privacy badger and Flash Control) but those have been installed and used successfully before starting Win 10. I surf a lot of news, and aggregators sites and like the ability to see the short videos that sometimes accompany the story. This issue is a pain and probably adds an hour a day to my surfing, just waiting. Any help or direction would be greatly appreciated.

good morning,

i have a problem since a longer time now and im really out of solutions.
half of the websites,i try to open, wont open.
they keep loading a long time..till i get the typical error msg

- "cant connect to xyz"
-or the page stays just white and at the bottom it says 'done'

if i refresh it,it will repeat one of those two.
i have that regardless of the browser im using.
firefox,ie.. same.
then other websites work just fine.

i used even a program to clear cookies and cache,didnt help.
its strange,as it happened just out of the blue and everything did work before without any problems.

i googled a bit and found out,im not the only one with that problem, but i didnt find any solutions so far.

the last thing i have in mind is to format,but i really dont wanna do that.

Just out of interest my iPod(which I am using now) and phone can access the internet via my wifi fine with no problems.

Any help would be appreciated.


A:FF or IE wont load any websites?

Have you tried reinstalling your modem or lan card drivers?
I have encountered that problem before and the above method works.

By the way, have you also try using the internet directly to your computer without the use of a router?

I've been having an issue for a while now where suddnely I am unable to load websites in my browser. I'm using Firefox 2, but I'm sure this isn't browser related. I've tested in IE and same issue. I can't even access my router. However all other internet activity works fine (IM, IRC, etc).

Also my other pc works fine when I am having issues. I'm using WinXP sp2. I don't recall any changes being made that should cause such an issue but any solutions would be great! Thanx in advance

So I finished my new website, and I went to go log on my account on 110mb.com, but the website wont load at all. But my website at mipit.110mb.com works just fine. I started up Filezilla and tried connecting to ftp.110mb.com but it times out. I try to ping 110mb.com and it returns after one attempt and says: General Failure.

I've been having a little trouble today with some websites not loading and just going to the normal firefox "couldn't load page". I dont know if it would be any virus or just temporary connection issues but I just want to see what I should do anyway.

It doesn't do it all the time, only sometimes when I go on a website it wont load, but then I can just refresh and connect again and it may work.

Hi guys

I started at University the other day, and the internet has been working fine, until yesterday when I came back to campus after returning home for a few days.

I tried straight away to sign into oovoo, but it wouldnt sign in.. so I tried skype.. and it loaded. Then I stopped the call after chatting for a while and I tried to switch over to my other skype account. It wouldnt sign in.. just like the oovoo problem.

Today, Google has been loading fine all day long under the google.co.uk address, but now when I try to load it, it comes up as if it cant load (like when you dont have a connection, but I can still load the google search engine by going through my gmail account and clicking on the search on the top toolbar. And Im using the internet now, so I know it works apart from that.

Anyone know whats going on? Im using a Acer Aspire 5733Z with Windows 7 64bit, if that helps at all.

2 minutes after I post this, google.co.uk now loads and works fine for me, but oovoo and skype are still down. Seems strange this..

Ok so a few days ago i log on and was going through some of my favourite websites etc. When i come across that one wont load, i ask a few friends if the website was down and it wasnt. I done a virus scan and spyware scan, deleted my inter history, temporary files and cookies, but the problem was still the same. The main site that wont work is google search but i can use live search. The thing i found interesting was that i could access all the "broken" websites through a proxy server. Another thing is i think this *virus* is changing some images and advertisements to "Warning - Spyware" or "Congratulations 1,000,000th user" etc. (Only thing that makes me think that its changing the images and advertisements is because ive seen "Warning - Spyware" etc. a lot unusaully and i tried loading a ytmnd page and the same "Warning - Spyware" image came up.)

(I wasnt too sure what forum to put this, but this seemed the best place)

Help much appreciated,

**Update**: Ok downloaded Safari (instead of using firefox,IE and Opera) and the websites seem to be working, but IE and firefox are still not loading these sites.

I experienced this frustrating problem. Thought it must be DNS problem. Tried all manner of solutions including flushing the DNS cache. Eventually checked the router’s settings and found that a built in parental control thingy which blocks sites based on key words was activated. It was causing the problem even though there were no key words entered! It is a Sky sagem router/modem by the way.

So the other day I get on the computer and Microsoft Security Essentials says that there are some things it could not remove and to download this other program (from Microsoft) to finish the job. So I did that and it said it was all cleaned. So I restart it again and run a quick scan just to be sure and I get the same thing over again. Every time I run a quick scan, it keeps saying it removed trojans and exploits and backdoors. The same ones are either coming back or not there or were never there.

Performance wise, the only thing it's causing problems with is web browsing (so far, I know these things can get worse). If you go to search in google, sometimes:

the search won't load at all
you can click one of the results and it will take you to another search engine instead
you can click on one of the results and it takes you to a "404 Not Found | nginx" page

And some addresses you can type in and it immediately says 'server not found' while it works on another computer. It seems to only do it in firefox because it will work in Chrome.

When I run malwarebytes, it gives me a list of things (things I swear I clicked remove before) but one of the files it shows infected is a system32 file (sytem32/grpconv.exe) and I wasn't sure if I should remove that one.

Also, if you tell me to run combofix, before you do so can you advise me on the fact that even though I know without a doubt that both norton and microsoft have realtime protection disabled (be... Read more

Our users have IE 7 and 8. We keep them locked into place by pointing IE to our firewall product (tools > internet options > connections > lan settings), so that only approved sites are the ones that our people can access.In the last few days, several of them report issues with specific websites loading very slowly - load times of over an hour just to get the log-in screen to appear.Troubleshooting Steps:1.) Unchecked the "use proxy server for your LAN" under the IE menus---> Site resolves instantly, as it should---> This pointed me to the direction that perhaps the site wasn't configured for our firewall2.) Re-checked the "use proxy server" box, and specifically configured the site in our firewall---> Site continues to resolve slowly, with the same load times as before performing step 1That would normally indicate that the problem is on the vendor's end. Something may be wrong with their site. And that's the line of thought I was pursuing until I was reported back to that the users are having the same problem on other websites. These new websites they're having problems with are, and have been for a long time, configured properly in the firewall.I'm not sure what my next step is to pursue. What am I looking for now? I don't know enough about networking to figure out where to track next.

Backstory (skip if you need)
I'm fixing someones laptop, It was slow and taking 30 minutes to startup, i did the usually virus scan and restarted, then it was stuck in an auto repair loop. I used a windows 8 Install CD from microscoft. None of the options in it would work, install (key doesnt match) reset (missing partition), image recovery (cant find an image), restore (no restore point), etc.
Used command prompt, did stuff like bootrec, bcdedit, diskpart, and chkdsk. After it ran chkdsk it finally loaded windows. I reset/reinstalled the OS completely. Fixed, restarted, running smooth. Owner said it was working great for a day, then after turning it back on it was in an auto repair loop.
It's stuck in a preair loop, I can't even boot from the 8 CD! Have it configured in the bios, it shows the the blue windows logo then the screen goes black for 3 minutes and a blue screen flashes for 1 second saying  "Your PC ran into a problem and need to restart. Collecting some info (0% complete) search online for error: 0x000021a"
The weird thing is, Windows 7 disks boot fine, but it's "not compatible". And if I physically remove the HDD, it will boot into the windows 8 CD. So I put the HDD back in (while still at the command prompt) and it wont take my commands in related to the C: . I get a "System cannot find the drive specified"
I also tried hooking upp the HDD to my PC SATA, it shows in explorer, but just right clicking it crashes explorer.exe. D... Read more

A:Windows wont load, Boot CD wont load, Automatic Repair Loop

I got a windows 8.1 disk made and it allowed me yo boot from the CD, but it's SLOOOOW, it takes minutes to load reset or w.e (none of them still work), or open the command prompt.
I ran chkdsk /f /r /x but it didnt help. chkdsk /r ends with:
"A disk read error occurredcc0000185
Insufficient disk space to fix the Usn Journal $J data stream."
Before when I ran it, I'm pretty sure it let me restart and booted into windows, not now.
Next I tried bootrec.
/fixmbr - succesful
/fixboot - succesfull
/rebuildBCD - Total identified Windows installations: 0
/scanOS - Total identified Windows installations: 0
Next bcdedit
Nothing worked "The boot configuration data store could not be opened. The requested system device cannot be found."
Next sfc /scannow
"There is a system repair pending which requires reboot to complete. Restart Windows and run sfc again."
"Windows resources protection didnt find integrity violations"
BCDBoot c:\WindowsFailure when attempting to copy boot files
Next diskpart - but I forgot what I did before that may have worked. All i can remember is I had to select a disk or volume, and do something with it.

I am trying to solve this problem on a friend's laptop. It is a Sony Vaio with Windows 7 64bit, using Chrome. Bought within the last year. I can play videos from sites like youtube, hulu, and sports sites, but when I try to play a video from putlocker, gorillavid, or other streaming sites typically used for videos like anime or tv shows the video either doesn't load (just spins) or takes a REALLY long time to load, almost like it is downloading the full video before it plays.

I borrowed another laptop from the library which also has Windows 7 and Chrome and all the videos play fine on it using the same internet connection, so it is definitely something local to this machine.

I have searched the net for three days trying to find a solution, but to no avail. I have the latest versions of flash, java, etc. I have tried older versions of flash. I've disabled the antivirus and firewall. Disabled the built-in flash plugin for chrome. I really am not sure what else to do. If anyone has any suggestions I would readily welcome them. I have tried other browsers as well and had similar issues.

yesterday, everything on my pc worked fine, then all of a sudden it started to play up, MSN windows were closing on their own... etc...

so i tried to do a scan in Norton, it got to about 100 files and closed, then it came up with an error, i cant remember the exact words, but it was something along the lines of "if you are experiencing irregular behaviour please re-install Norton".

so i went to housecall.antivirus.com, did an online scan, deleted the one virus that was on there, installed Norton again, and i thought everything seemed fine...

i told someone about what was happening and they suggested downloading HJT, which ive had before,so i knew which site to get it off

i went to load it in my browser... and it came up with page not displayed, so i tried to go back onto housecall online antivirus scan and it wouldnt load either, i tried mcafee, that didnt work, so i tried to load something completely unrelated to antivirus issues... faceparty.com, and it worked perfectly...

ive reset my internet settings, so it isnt them... any other ideas?

anyone help?

This is only happening on my Win7 computer. About 20% of the time, I'll either get "the connection was reset", or the page will only load some text.
If I restore to windows default host file, all is fine. Except of course I get the annoying ad popups and stuff.
My 2 other xp computers are using the same MVPS hosts file and the same web pages load fine, with popups being blocked by the hosts file.
This started about 2 months ago.
I tried Firefox in safe mode, no help. Internet Explorer does it, too.
I tried offloading firewall, no help. Rebooted router, no help. Reinstalled Firefox, no help.
I deleted all temp internet files, cookies, no help.
The only thing that fixes it is restoring to the default Windows hosts file.
The only way I can see my websites is to refresh over and over till they load. Might take 5 times, maybe 10.

Alright I fixed it. I'm using F-Secure anti-virus (free from my isp). When I un-checked the "scan and remove viruses from web traffic" the problem disappeared.
I still have "real-time scanning" and "browsing protection".

Hi all, I am new to this forum & I am hoping you will be able to help me with a few problems I'm having with my PC.

When I boot up the pc no matter who's login i use (mine or the wifes) when the desktop loads, the taskbar down the bottom is frozen. When i move the mouse over it there is just a hour glass.

Also certain programs won't load up like I-tunes or the defrag yet when i go into processes the itunes exe is showing.

Internet explorer seems to work ok.

I have Avira anti-virus & I am using Adaware, Spybot & spywareguard.

I dont know if this is posted in the right area but I'm so desperate to get my laptop working its unreal.
First it started off with my laptop crashing, I had totally forgot it needed to do a windows update and turned off my laptop in hopes that it would work properly.
After that my laptop has not been working. The machine turns on and gives me two options. Start windows normally or do a repair. Upon starting windows normally, it loads so far before sending me back to the two options of start windows normally or repair. On the second time I clicked repair. My laptop then goes so far before presenting me with a blue screen that is usually the screen where my accounts are. The cursor still moves but it loads no further even after leaving it an hour. I decided to make a repair disk, hoping that the problem was because of windows. the disk loads, gives me a choice on the keyboard language then does nothing. I honestly have no idea what to do, I want to keep all the files safe on my computer as I havent backed them up and I have worked so hard on the projects. someone please help

A:windows 7 refuses to load and system repair wont load

Do a hardware/software reset with your BIOS:Shut down and turn off the computer.
Unplug the computer from the wall or surge protector (then remove the battery if it is a laptop).
"Remove the computer from any port replicator or docking station, disconnect
cables to printers or devices such as external monitors, USB memory sticks or SD cards, headset or external speakers, mouse or auxiliary keyboard, turn off WIFI and Bluetooth wireless devices." (Use Hard Reset to Resolve Hardware and Software Issues HP Pavilion dv5000 Notebook PC series - HP Customer Care (United States - English))
Hold down the power button for 30 seconds. This closes the circuit and ensures all
power from components is drained to clear the software connections between the BIOS
and hardware and clear any corruption in the temporary memory.
(If it is a laptop, plug the battery back into the laptop and then) Plug the computer back into the wall. Do not reconnect any unnecessary peripherals; monitor, keyboard,
and mouse should suffice and be the only peripherals reconnected.
Turn it on to reinitialize the software connections between the BIOS and hardware

After doing those steps, clear your CMOS by entering the BIOS (see your system manual for steps to enter the BIOS), going to the EXIT screen, and loading setup/optimized defaults.

Some websites, for example:
http://www.colonialfirstate.com.au/ and

do not load in my newly installed IE7.

The error message says:

This program cannot display the webpage

Most likely causes:
You are not connected to the Internet.
The website is encountering problems.
There might be a typing error in the address.

What you can try:
Check your Internet connection. Try visiting another website to make sure you are connected.
Retype the address.
Go back to the previous page.

But the same websites load OK in Firefox.

I have fiddled around with the security settings etc., but still no joy.

I did not have such a problem with IE6.

I also use Maxthon Browser from time to time. But since that is based on IE engine, even that will not show some websites.

Can somebody suggest a solution?

A:Web pages wont load or load completely

Do you have more then 1 computer connected to your modem/router? If so, does this happen on them? If not, can you connect a separate one (ex: friend's laptop) to test?

Normally when you get errors like this it's best to rule out a problem at the modem/router and provider before going crazy over trying to fix a problem (that may not exist) on your PC(s).

Also just a couple of other questions:

Who is your internet provider (ISP)?
What connection type do they use (Cable/DSL/Fiber/Fixed Wireless/Mobile Wireless)?
What is the make and model of your router and modem?

Try running a ping to the sites that have trouble loading to see what kind of connection times you are looking at. I would also run a tracert to those sites to see if there are any places dropping the connection.

When using the internet I get periodic pop-ups suggesting my computer is infected (duh!). This wouldn't be so bad except that most popular websites won't load (e.g. hotmail, facebook, google searches - though google.com works, etc.). My Norton Antivirus apparently failed to protect against this malware, and doesn't detect any problems. Ad-Aware and Spybot Search and Destroy detected and fixed several problems (e.g. VirtuMonde) and have since been uninstalled, but my problems continue unabated. Please help if you can.

ok this is gonna be a bit long but i want the details there. the issue pc is my old pc. it has windows 7 its an asus msn-la motherboard i cloned this drive and used it in my new pc. after a few months my new pc's drive died and i took the old drive from the issue pc(witch was not giving issues at this time) and stuck it into my new pc until my replacement drive came. when i got the replacement drive i cloned the drive again onto the replacement drive and then put the new drive in the new pc had no issues there. put the old drive back into the issue pc (this is when issues started) the pc booted up to the windows desktop loading screen fast but once it got there it sat there for like 5 min before loading into windows. once it loaded into windows it was un usable for around 10 min while it loaded background stuff. once it finally loads into windows if i try to open anything its still responding extremely slow. is there anything i could do to fix this or is this going to me a re install only situation? i did try to use a windows 7 disk to do a startup repair but it claimed i couldn't do it because i dident install from that disk.

Yesturday my vista was working great, and on the screen as i went to shut it down said "updating files do not shut down computer 3/3 100%" but it stayed like that for 4 hours, so i turn it off manualy once i turned it back on the next day it asked me for my password i put it in and as it was loading it was vey slow and would take 5-6 minutes for programs to load up.

Also when i go to click on like my internet it dont work, not even my games work, they try to load then freeze. So i did a scan on it and its still having this problem. After i got frustrated i went to shut it down again and it says "logging off" but stays like that for hours, so i have to manualy turn it off. Now with internet issue, it works in safe mode with connection, but not in my normal screen. WHY IS THIS DOING THIS?

Try safe mode and if you can get it to work in safe mode use a restore point to before you uninstalled it. You might just have to deal with IE 9 or use an alternative such as Firefox, Chrome, Opera, or Safari.

Hi! My mother's computer recently needed a clean up so I removed adware, ran scans and all that but there was still a problem with her loading our credit union's website: sdccu.com. I checked on my own laptop, and found the same issue for me and every other computer in the house. Assuming it was a problem with Verizon fios, I contacted their fios support line only to be met with a message stating they were being swamped with an unexpected number of support calls. I tried again today and got the same message. Even their chat support is busy. I'm assuming it's a problem with Verizon, since I've used a down or not site, pinged repeatedly, tried different browsers, rebooted my modem, reset the system, followed multiple instructions in the forum, etc. My question is, does anyone know if Verizon is having these issues? I've only found a few forum posts complaining of similar problems and that's it. Normally, it wouldn't be a big deal, but sdccu.com is a website my mom uses to transfer money and pay bills so it's important. My mom can access the site through her iphone when she connects to a different network however, her iphone does not connect at home, as expected. Anyway, thank you for your time.

I was hoping I wouldn't have to post on the forum (I hope I chose the right category to post it in) for advice but after reading endless threads all over the net I am still left with a problem I can't seem to figure out.
Basically, there are 3 websites (that I know of) that won't load on my laptop at home. Google.com, Facebook.com and Amazon.com.
I've tried to disconnect my WiFi and turn my phone into a hotspot but they still won't load. They all work on my phone, both on the WiFi and the mobile network. They also work on other PC's
I use Firefox, but I have tried Internet Explorer, Chrome, Safari and Opera and none of them can open these sites.
A few of the advices I've read and tried are:
Replacing 'http' with 'https'. Did nothing.
Flushing by opening a command box and writing 'flushdns'. I did it correctly and it did not work.
I have my computer set up with a login password (the reason I post this is because I read somewhere that setting a login password might help). This is how desperate I am.
I haven't done a System Restore because the dates offered aren't after this started to happen, which is over a month ago.
I'm from Iceland and for some reason google.is does work.
I have a year old Acer with a Windows 7 64 bit OS.
Is there anybody out there that has the slightest idea of what is causing this?
Many thanks in advance.

Suspect your hosts file is contaminated
get a command prompt

cd \windows\system32\drivers\etc​
look for each domain name in the hosts (should not be present)
(If you see something like ***.google.com, then you can't get to google.com). Here's the test sequence:

find /I "amazon" .\hosts
find /I "facebook" .\hosts
find /I "google" .\hosts​
Here's my content for each (notice while I have some hits, none are the basic domains (eg google.com, facebook.com and amazon.com are all missing. Entries shown stop advers from being displayed)

For a long time I've tolerated this problem. Basically, an assortment of websites have trouble loading. Some times they will take a couple refreshes to load, sometimes they will load in HTML after a long time, and some don't load at all. Sometimes a website will work fine, but then not load the next day. It's starting to really piss me off, especially since it affects such websites as:
- SoundCloud
- Twitch.tv
- Justin.tv
- The Escapist
- Facebook (occasionally)
- Many more!
As far as I can tell, this all started a few months ago. My internet spontaneously stopped working. I called my ISP (TelstraClear NZ), and the operator did some troubleshooting. Eventually the problem just seemed to fix itself after I unplugged and replugged my modem; I guess it reset my connection. But ever since then, I've had this problem.
I have a SURFBoard modem and a Netgear wireless router.
The things I've done to try fix are:
- Changing my DNS servers - many times
- Using a different OS/computer
- Using a different browser
- Pinging the servers of stuck websites. Often I can't reach them with a ping
- Turning off/unplugging my modem and router
- Plugging my modem directly into the computer
I'm at my wit's end as to what the problem is. Everything i can see suggests that this is a DNS problem - the seemingly arbitrary times websites won't work, my inability to ping them, the random assortment of affected websites. The only other thing that would make sense ... Read more

A:Certain websites don't load

Diagnose the problem with the ISP modem only being used. It might be a hardware or connection problem from your provider. Try ipconfig/flushdns on command prompt.
