My problem may be with one or a combination of: Yahoo, Foxfire; ZoneAlarm; Real; hardware - or something else!

I have info entered on a Yahoo site. Recently almost every time I access it, it
wont finish loading and Firefox freezes. The sequence:

1. At the bottom left of screen (right above "Start")
"Transferring data from streamer api.finance.yahoo.com".

2. after 2+ minutes small window appears:"Warning: Unresponsive script. A
script on this page may be busy or it may have stopped responding. You can
stop the script now, or you can continue to see if the script will
complete." and there are two click boxes: "Stop Script" and "Continue".
When either of these boxes is clicked the window disappears - for a moment,
then reappears! Meanwhile, a constant "hourglass" at curser, and Foxfire
whirling circle at upper right keeps whirling.

And usually the window freezes. When I access Task Manager it sometimes
shows Yahoo and Zone Alarm (free version) "Not Responding". And sometimes not - just
shows "running".

The strange part of this problem is its inconsistency - all, some or none of above things happen!

I've tried accessing site via IE and have the same problems.

I have XP PRO, Foxfire, Avast, ZoneAlarm, Real

Any suggestions greatly appreciated!

you could post a hi-jack log

it could find that your infected and you go to the MALWARE FORUM or another program could or might interfere with your download and it maybe safe to disable the program so your download can complete
