ok, so i have really bad grammer and i don't like using periods and such
so bear with me

for the past few months my computer has been doing this thing where it says cannot load server and it does that on internet explorer and it won't load on any website

but when i get on Firefox it only doesn't work on certain sites like yahoo when i go to the sign in page and whenever i try to log in to secured sites and my email(animail.com)

if i get an antivirus software program it cant connect to that server to get updates

my torrents won't download either

and it wont connect to i tunes store

so i'm not really sure whats going on..i've been trying to see if anybody had the same problem but i haven't seen anybody with one quite like mine

please help asap :)

Hi softyheadjon

It sounds as though there is something that is preventing your internet browser from accessing websites. The fact that you can access some websites would indicate that your internet connection is operating properly.

I would be inclined to run Hijackthis (HJT) and post the log in the Malware removal forum, asking one of the malware experts to examine the log and look out for anything that may have hijacked your browser settings.

If you don't have HJT, then follow these steps:

* Click here to download HJTsetup.exe
  • Save HJTsetup.exe to your desktop.
  • Doubleclick on the HJTsetup.exe icon on your desktop.
  • By default it will install to C:\Program Files\Hijack This.
  • Continue to click Next in the setup dialogue boxes until you get to the Select Addition Tasks dialogue.
  • Put a check by Create a desktop icon then click Next again.
  • Continue to follow the rest of the prompts from there.
  • At the final dialogue box click Finish and it will launch Hijack This.
  • Click on the Do a system scan and save a logfile button. It will scan and the log should open in notepad.
  • Click on "Edit > Select All" then click on "Edit > Copy" to copy the entire contents of the log.
  • Post a new thread in the Malware Removal Forums and await further instructions from a Malware Expert
  • DO NOT have Hijack This fix anything yet. Most of what it finds will be harmless or even required.

Good luck
