I have a XPS 9000 on order from Dell but I need to get this computer back up to snuff and I'm assuming there's something in the hijack log that might indicate the problem.

Outlook Express real slow to open,

Opening up Add/Remove panel very slow
What's odd is certain sites with pictures/picture dex's are unaffected by the speed to move around the internet, unless the pages are left open for a period of time, like http://caedes.net or other photography sites.

Preferred Solution: Page Icons slow to Load when Opening Browser

I recommend downloading and running DAP. It can help sort out any driver and firmware related issues on your system

It's worked out well for many of us in the past.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloaddap.org. (This link will open the download page of DAP so you can save a copy to your computer.)

This is my first post, so I apologize if I miss something.
I am running 64bit Windows7. Lately when I open any of my browsers (Firefox, IE, or Chrome) it takes forever to load and sometimes, times out. This happened not to long ago and I restored to a previous date and that helped temporarily. But now I have the slow loading web pages and browsers. It only happens on this computer. My other computers have no problem opening web pages/browser. I do not have them networked together because I have a teenage son who is a viral magnet. This computer is only used by my wife and I, and has so far been virus free. I am thinking this is some malicious software that I cannot detect. I did open an attachment from work that apparently had a worm. But according to the IT department McAfee should have rooted it out.
So far what I have done:
1. Ran complete scan with my McAfee security
2. Installed and ran Microsoft security essentials
3. Installed and ran Adaware
4. Installed and ran Malware
5. Installed and ran CCleaner.
I think I have followed the "First Steps" from TSF.
Any help or comments would be helpful.

Over the past week I've been in the process of reinstalling programs to my computer after having to reinstall WindowsXP. Up until this past Friday everything was running smoothly, and then in the blink of an eye trying to browse web pages has become a frustrating act taking much longer than it should. When running other applications not involving going online, my computer runs completely fine. I suspect spyware is the cause because when I first began reinstalling programs I inadvertantly came across a web page that I know hit me with a load of spyware...all this happening before I reloaded my firewall and antivirus software. Eventually I installed these programs and cleaned out my computer to the point where I could work without worrying about spyware cropping up. I still suspect remnants of spyware remain on my computer which has now caused my browsing online to become a near impossibility. I am only able to ask for your assistance on this web site while running my computer in safe mode.
Sorry for being so wordy..I just wanted to be as descriptive as possible to help you out in determining the correct actions to help alleviate my problem.

Hi Mark and welcome to TSF.

Download L2MFix from one of these two locations:

http://www.atribune.org/downloads/l2mfix.exe
http://www.downloads.subratam.org/l2mfix.exe

Save the file to your desktop and double click l2mfix.exe. Click the Install button to extract the files and follow the prompts. Then open the newly added l2mfix folder on your desktop. Double click l2mfix.bat and select option #1 for Run Find Log by typing 1 and then pressing Enter. This will scan your computer and it may appear nothing is happening. After a minute or 2, notepad will open with a log. Copy the contents of that log and paste it into this thread.

IMPORTANT: Do NOT run option #2 or any other files in the l2mfix folder until you are asked to do so!

I am running IE 11 on Windows 7. After booting up the computer, I can open IE once or twice (by closing and opening it again). But if I try and close and open the program a third time (or sometimes the second time), IE opens but won't load a page. Furthermore,
and very strangely, once this happens, I also can't open Chrome or Firefox - Chrome load also with a blank page and Firefox won't open at all. It is as if IE has taken control of Internet access but is frozen, and  the only solution to get a browser
working again at that point is to restart the computer. Ghis just started happening a couple of days ago.
Outlook does seem to continue to work - it is just the browsers that are frozen.
I have already tried  deselecting IE 11 from the Windows list of program that you can get to from the Programs and Features control panel, restarting, then reselecting it and restarting again. I also tried resetting the IE settings form the Internet
Options control panel. What I have not yet tried is completely uninstalling and then reinstalling IE.
I have Norton, and it has not found a virus, but maybe there is a corrupted file?

A:IE 11 won't load page after opening and closing it once or twice.

Hi,
Start>run>msconig>Startup tab, disable any non-ms startup entries. Reboot your computer for the changes to take affect.
msconfig is only available on Pro and Enterprise versions of windows.
You may find answers to similar questions at the Nortons support forums.

Greetings gurus. Internet trouble. As the title says, my mail will not load in any browser. Page load is very slow and most things time out at least once. AT&T ran line tests on DSL and everything was clean. Not sure how this could be. Speedtest was run many times and no probs. I even did some gaming which strains everything with no problems. I'm open to the possibility of a virus. Ran Avira and MBAM but haven't gone further. Strangely the wife's Facebook games are a no-go. Also, wireless devices work fine. Heeeeelp!

I am currently on my brother's laptop. Both my firefox and chrome browser stop working yesterday. I believe it started when I receive some javascript/browser error while I was closing tabs on firefox. Kept receiving these errors for each tab closed.

I don't believe it is my internet problem as my laptop seems to be connected to my router fine.

A:My browser won't load a page

What did the error message say?

Have you tried updating Java to the latest version and clearing the cache/history in Firefox and Chrome?

I have a web site that I plan to put onto CD, i.e. use it locally. The site uses activeX controls hence it is no good for me to use Firefox (as far as I know there are no activeX controls for firefox). However since Firefox is my default browser, I was wondering if there was a coding way (C++, JavaScript, anything) to open this particular web page in IE.

I've been attempting to write C++ code to do this. So far I can open IE with:

system("\"\"C:\\Program Files\\Internet Explorer\\iexplore.exe\"\"");

I believe ShellExecute can be used to open web pages via the Default Browser (I haven't found any tags where I can choose a browser).

Anyone have a clue?

If you cannot remove it from your homepages, try using Avast! antivirus because it has real time protection and is very good with catching viruses.

I get the following error in IE9 on launching

The website cannot display the page
HTTP 500
Most likely causes:
? The website is under maintenance.
? The website has a programming error.
What you can try:

Retype the address.Refresh the page.


Go back to the previous page.Go back to the previous page.


I get the following error on Chrome on launching

Error 500: IDL:smgt.juniper.net/sae/SAEException:1.0

It takes about 2-3 minutes before the home page opens up. In the meantime, attempts to refresh shows the same results as given above.

There are no proxy settings that are preventing this afaik. Also, I did a check on any offensive add-ons in IE and could not find any to the best of my knowledge.

Surprisingly, the home page opens up in 2 minutes after startup and I am inclined to think this is the work of some malware.

i own a website, i made no changes to my browser, and yet suddenly, my browser (all versions of IE since i tried uninstalling 6.1) refuse to load any pages on my domain. everyone of them gets hung up at 'web site found - waiting for reply'.
i've been through the tools in my browser, and reset everything to absolute lowest settings. there are no restricted sites and no restricted settings (and never were). i uninstalled ver 6.1 and went to an older version, and nothing i try gets the pages loaded. not a single page on my home domain will load, although all other websites load as normal.
i installed netscape just to check, and it loads just fine on it, but won't load with IE.
i've ran norton corporate, browser hijacker, and lavasoft ad-aware 6 and they all say i'm clean.

what on earth is stopping my IE browser from loading the pages on my home domain? i'm at the end of my rope and any help greatly appreciated! i can't do any of the administration on my site because i can't load a single page.

Thank you very much for your help. Here is the gist of my problem:

When I open a browser(IE7 Vista SP1), it initially freezes for about 30 seconds before opeining my home page(Google). I can see the progress bar at the bottom of the window just get a little green and then it freezes. Once it lets go and I do my search, it takes me to the results page. However, when I click on one of the items, it very slowly, takes me to an advertisement page. Most of which I have never seen before. If I click on the back button, sometimes it will let me go back, sometimes not. If I can go back and I click on the results again, it then takes me to the correct page. I have not noticed any other ill effects from whatever it is that has infected my computer. Thanks again for your help. I have pasted and attached the 3 files you requested from the programs you asked me to run.

When that happens, if I go to another page, it will or will not load. If not, it shows the "cannot find page" site. My dsl router connections shows on, but not many or no packets. If I reboot or renew the connection, it might help for once or twice but then this happens again.

Hello everybody.

I can't load any microsoft account login page in any browser on my laptop (running windows 8.1). Whether it is outlook, one drive, microsoft support forums, etc. Each time I try to load the login page I get the following errors:

In firefox: The connection was reset
In IE: This page cannot be displayed
In chrome: This webpage is not available

It was working up until yesterday, then all of sudden in the middle of the afternoon I couldn't access any microsoft login page.

As far as I can tell, these are the only pages that can't load. MSN works fine, any microsoft site works fine (outside of the login part of course). All other sites I have tried work just fine.

However, I can access my email in the Mail app that comes standard in windows 8.1 as well as on my android phone. Furthermore, I don't think that it is an ISP problem as I can easily access those pages on an old desktop computer I have and on my phone. It seems to be an issue with my laptop specifically.

I have tried restarting the computer (multiple times) and clearing the cache and cookies (multiple times).

If I can't fix this, I'm probably going to reinstall windows, but I really would like to save myself all the trouble that comes with that, especially since it's just one page that I can't get to load.

I really need help figuring this out. Any help and input would be greatly appreciated.

MSN.com had been my default internet browser page. However, a website:
http://www.aconfidenceonline.com/ has hijacked it and now my browser automatically opens to this page when I double click on the Explorer icon. Also, there are several icons on the bottom right of the page, claiming that my computer is infected and I need to buy verious anti-virus and anti-spyware software. I recently installed a premium level Norton product which says my computer is secure. It also won't allow these programs to be downloaded.

Hello yall!
 
So, for the past week, whenever I open a browser, a random site opens up, even though my startup page is set to yahoo.com.
Half the time it's safesurfs searching engine, but sometimes its some kind of a survey or an ad etc.
 
I remember it all started when I downloaded a sound kit for FL Studio, so i deleted all I could, but obviously it wasn't enough.
 
What can I do?

A:Random website appears as the startup page when opening any browser

Use some free virus scanner, like Eset online scanner, or Kaspersky security scan....
After removing of viruses, report viruses to current antivirus site or change antivirus program.

I have tried all things, from virus/malware/spyware scanners, I even used a programme that tells you what programmes are running and nessersary in start menu. stopped the programmes that arent needed.
The problem is windows does take a while to load, but when on the internet, a page opening is like really slow, its almost like someone has gone to make a cup of tea and then continue to load your page.
just like tech support forum, when I logged on, bits of thwe page just seem to unfold really slowly, you will get a bit on the right then left then words will start to appear, it shouldnt be this slow, I have a 4meg connection and a computer that is quick enough to cope.
I originallt put it down to avast anti virus running along with spyware terminator, but even with these it seems way to slow.
Any ideas please, it is so frustrating.
I have even thought of formatting my computer but that is a pain when you have game patches etc.
I do use these regually .... clean up ......spyware blaster ........spybot search and destroy.........super anti spyware.........
although I have found it a bit strange that pandascan seemed to find something but didnt complete its scan it just vanished before showing any results.

Recently I discovered that windows update on my computer doesn't work anymore. When I tried to access Windows Update page , all I got is: "This webpage is not available." in google chrome. In Internet Explorer when I try the windows update link, the browser keeps closing and restarting with no success. If trying to google about this problem concerning windows update issues I also get the browser closing and restarting. Also no succes in Mozzila Firefox nor in Apple Safari. I tried all browsers with no success: windows update page is not working ( Internet Explorer cannot display the webpage), neither is it possible to update form Windows, I just can't get updates to work no matter I do.

When I tried to run Combofix to see the results, the computer freezes and I need to shutdown and restart.
I scanned my computer with Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware and I didn't get any objects infected.
What advice can you give me?
Thanks in advance.

PS: also on this page in this post when I tried to paste the windows update adress(link) I could not post, I get "This webpage is not available." in chrome.
In Safari: Safari can’t open the page “http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/index.php?”. The error is: “unknown error” (kCFErrorDomainWinSock:10052)
And it is only because I pasted the adress of windows update site I could not post it no matter what browser I use.

It's normal for Firefox to take longer to open than other browsers like Internet Explorer and Chrome.

How long does it take to open and become usable after you click the icon?

If it takes more than 30 seconds, how many addons and toolbars have you got insalled, and how many tabs are saved in the session manager?

It is painfully slow going from one page to another in a website.

I can download any fixes, drivers, etc, to another computer and install them on this one via a memory stick.

Hello,
I've been annoyed with this problem for ages and not got to the bottom of it.
When a user opens IE, there is a long delay before they recieve a 404, no matter what they set the home page to. Once they then click Home or Refresh it works fine for that session.
I have removed all add-ins, disabled 3rd party extensions, turned off auto detect proxy, and turned off check if its default browser. Sometimes it works by turning that off but more often than nt it doesn't.
Lastly, tonight, i have logged on as a user that hasn't on the machine before. Loaded IE and got the delay. Once you open Internet Options, click a few tabs, but make no changes, close Options. Close IE. It then works fine whenever that user logs on again, even after a restart. thats OK but its a school and the pupils don't have access to internet options.
Any ideas?
Thanks

I tried the following, and now the icons show right away, but then the screen blinks (for lack of a better word) and the icons show as 'white boxes' and then in a second or two they return to the regular (colored) icons. Anything else I can do to make the icons appear as fast as they did orginally and stay that way rather than turning "white" and then changing back to the regular colored icons?
