Hi I have been looking around the site and cannot seem to log in to any web site.
This is the error I see when trying to login or access the login page.

The connection has timed out

The server at login.yahoo.com is taking too long to respond.

* The site could be temporarily unavailable or too busy. Try again in a few
moments.

* If you are unable to load any pages, check your computer's network
connection.

* If your computer or network is protected by a firewall or proxy, make sure
that Firefox is permitted to access the Web.


I have also included a log of my malware scan

Hello, and thank you for responding. It seems to be all sites that I have to log into. With the exception of this web site. I was able to log in and access this thread.

Since non of your logins or passwords are working I highly suggest you go to the Malware Removal and Spyware Removal 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 the reguested logs in THAT forum.
If you are unable to run any of the tools then start a new topic in the malware forum and put this in the subject line...I am unable to run any malware tools

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).

Add a link to this topic so that malware tech can see what steps have been taken here
