You mentioned that you are using LimeWire. If one browser works and the others don't, and you are using LimeWire, it is very likely that you downloaded a piece of malware that is interfering with the browsers. My first piece of advice, and the only advice I'm allowed to give you is to remove LimeWire. The content that you download is either illegal or dangerous, and often both. We here at GeeksToGo
will not assist you with issues relating to P2P
file sharing programs. While many of these programs are-in-and of themselves legal, most things acquired by their use are not. Instead of attempting to differentiate between the legal use of P2P
programs and the illegal use thereof, we have decided to stop helping with issues regarding this software. It is also in your best interest to know that many P2P
software packages come bundled with spyware/malware/virii and that their use greatly increases the chances of your computer becoming infected. I strongly suggest that you uninstall these programs and refrain from using them at all costs.
I suggest you go to the Malware Forum
and run all the steps located in the START HERE
. These self-help tools will help you clean up 70% of problems on your own. If you are still having problems after doing the steps, then please post a HiJackThis Log in THAT
forum. If you are unable to run and/or post a HJT log, then post that in your initial post in the topic you create in that forum.
If you are still having problems after being given a clean bill of health from the malware expert, then please return to THIS
thread and we will pursue other options to help you solve your current problem(s).
