For the last few days I have some webpages such as google.com and mail.google.com will not load. I get an error message that says Firefox can't find the server at mail.google.com or some kind of jar;file thing in my browsers page bar.

Any help will be appriciated, thanks!

i read somewhere that this is due to installing the "Ask" toolbar that comes as a "value" add-on to some of the numerous freeware out there. It kind of sneaks up on you as you just blindly press "yes" during the installation progress, and before you know it voila! "Ask" is installed on your computer.

Ok, I got the computer cleaned up with some help from Gammo!

Everything seems to be working fine, except I am still getting this when going to web-pages: Firefox can't find the server at (website). It is also doing the same thing in IE and AOL, if I reload the page it will usually load fine. When all this first started, I tried WinSockFix and it seemed to fix the problem on all browsers (Firefox, IE, AOL). But now a few days later it is all back again. I uninstalled Firefox, and then reinstalled it. But, it seems that has not fixed the problem.

Any help will be greatly appreciated.
