whenever I try and open any forums by gcwebservices it tells me that the page cannot be found. I use 2 forums with the same provider and both won't open

I've downloaded mozilla firefox and get the same problem with that

every other site opens as normal

the site address opens as normal in the address bar but then says the page is unavailable and when I look at the properties it fails to open as the url is actually


also on properties I get

protocol: unknown protocol

type: not availabe

connection: not encrypted

size: not available

created: not available

modified: not available

I've run hijack this numerous times, numerous spyware/malware programs, winsock fixers and I think basically anything that can be downloaded and run I have run.

I have tried turning firewall, anti virus program and pop up stopper off.

It's like something in the registry is blocking addresses with gcwebservices in the address

I'm wondering if it could be more simple than we're making it out to be. Try these simple things:

1) clear your temporary internet files (Tools -> Settings -> Delete Files)
2) flush your DNS by doing the following:

Go to Start -> Run -> type CMD
In the command line type: ipconfig /flushdns
