I just recently got my PC cleaned up from an infection and I've had problems occasionally JUST w/ my web browsers (IE & FireFox). Other programs such as outlook, IM, Google Desktop work just fine.

The problem is just occasionally I'll get "Page can't be displayed" or it takes a while to load, longer than normal. Most of the time the page just doesn't display. If I wait a while it will load. I never had this problem before and I'm just curious what it might be?

I've worked thru the troubleshooting offered here:

How do you connect to the internet? How stable is your ISP? What happens when you click refresh during a stall?

I have stable Internet (broadband) my other PC has no problems. Sometimes refresh will solve the problem.

Hmmm... simplest things first. Try forcing your modem. Turn off the computer and unplug the modem. Go get a cup of coffee. Reboot the computer, and when you see the Windows splash screen, plug the modem back into the outlet. This will make your modem renew its lease with the ISP. Surf and let us know if there is an improvement, or no change.
