Hey there, Clyde Machine with one weird issue I've never run into before:

When loading pages in my Firefox (or IE) browser on my AT&T mobile broadband, these pages either refuse to load (sit there saying they're loading when they aren't loading at all) or take an incredibly long time to load. Using a NoScript addon for Firefox, I've determined that there is a script by the address "http://1.2.3.4" that is loading, but never finishes loading. This appears on EVERY site, even Google, and only on this one computer. I've scanned the computer with Avast, and I'm currently scanning with MBAM. I've seen one page (only one) that mentions it pertaining to my problem, http://groups.google...cfa08f816cae57c , and so far I haven't found a solution or a hint as to a solution from it. (Note: With NoScript blocking the aforementioned script, it still tries to load it and never finishes loading my pages, which prevents me from viewing some pages.)

As always, any help is appreciated!
-Clyde

Do as much of

http://www.geekstogo...uide-t2852.html

as you can. If a step won't work, skip to the next one. Copy and paste your gmer, mbam, otl, & extras logs into a reply. Do not attach them.

If you lose internet access after running MBAM or if you are not able to get to the downloads:

In IE, Tools, Internet Options, Connections, LAN Settings, then uncheck all boxes and OK. Close IE and restart IE.

In FireFox, Tools, Options, Advanced, Settings, check No Proxy then OK. Close Firefox and restart Firefox.

In Chrome, Wrench, Options, Under the Hood, Change Proxy Settings, uncheck all boxes, OK.

False alarm, found that it was a mobile broadband communication manager program setting that tried to reduce load times by reducing image sizes - which did the exact opposite. No malware or nothing, just a program setting that needed changing.

Got it worked out, thanks anyway folks! :)
