Hello,

I have been noticing this problem for the last week or week and half. I am having to refresh my browser almost every time I visit a website or click on a link to get the page to display. Sometimes I have to refresh the page several times or click on a link a few times. If not the browser loading animation just sits there an spins. Sometimes the page will only load some of the images and I have to refresh for it to load the others. Right now as I type this the loading graphic is still spinning and the status bar says "Transferring data from www.geekstogo.com..." If I let it, it would say that all day and never finish loading.

I have used both firefox and internet explorer to see if it was a problem with a browser. Both are up to date and experience the same problem (though FF seems to experience it more which could be because I mostly use FF). I have tried to uninstall firefox and reinstall it. I have also replaced my ethernet cable. I have done ipconfig release and renew commands several times. I don't think it is my ISP because my roommate hasn't complained of this problem.

Is there anything I can do to fix this?
Thanks for the tips!

I'm still puzzled about this issue. Its been over a month now and it makes it very difficult to use the Internet. I thought I would post one last time to see if anyone has any suggestions? My only thought is to reinstall my OS. Maybe I'll do that tonight if there are still no suggestions.
Thanks.

How you tried Opera Browser?
Download it and install it, then see if this happens with Opera too and inform us.

Good luck!

The issue could be a number of things including malware.
What is your virus scanner?
What are you using for your malware scanner?

Can you go to start....all programs... and then under Mozilla Firefox, click on load Mozilla Firefox safemode.

Does this work any better?
If so, then you have an add-on that is creating a problem.

Lets get some more info.
Download and install Free Everest Home Edition
Open it.
1: In left pane expand Computer folder.
2: Click once on Summary
3: In upper menu, go Report
4: And then to Quick Report-Summary
5: Save it in text file, and paste it in your next post.

Then Click the + by computer, click on Sensor. Get a screenshot and post it so I can check your temps and voltages...

DO NOT INCLUDE ANYTHING UNDER THE LINE THAT SAYS "DEBUG- PCI"

pspuser007, I'm not sure what it would tell me by running Opera.

123Runner, I thought initially it was spyware or a virus also. I ran avg, malwarebytes, spybot s&d, superanti spyware. All are up-to-date and found nothing.

I also thought it maybe an add-on. So I disabled all add-ons and tried again, but with no success. But if this was the case, then it wouldn't have explained why I experience the same problem with IE.
