Hello!  Not sure where to start but it boils down to I can't get 90% of my pages to load.  I get endless "Webpage not available" that turns to "Unable to connect to the internet" errors.  I hit reload and half the page loads, reload again and it MIGHT load all the way.  I am using Chrome (latest version) I've tried Firefox (updated) and IE10 and it does the same thing with all browsers.

 

OS is Windows 7, I have Malware Antibytes full edition and it is updated.  My windows firewall is always on, but just to get to this site I had to disable it.  It's crazy how it works... eBay will load, Gmail will load, WeatherUnderground will sometimes load, Facebook never loads the first time and when it does the picture links are mostly broken.  There is no rhyhme or reason as to what will load and what wont but I've reached the end of my rope and am desperate to figure this out.  MBAM shows no issues, even run in Safe Mode, I also have Tweaking and Advanced System Care 7, they also show no issues.  WIndows Updates are all up to date as well, and THAT is usually where I start having issues, this proves it once again.

 

I probably screwed up when I did a system restore but I tried it and it didn't help, but it got no worse.  I looked up the DNS issue and www.techluminati.com said to change the DNS to 8.8.4.4. and 8.8.8.8 which I did and still no improvement so I switched it back to automatic and here I am.  It has been going on for about a week now and I figured at first is was out ISP but the husbands desktop is running fine and mine has gotten progressively worse.

 

This is not my first time here so I promise to follow directions to the letter if there is a tech who can help me figure out what stupid setting has changed to cause this.  I can't see this being a virus since it is so all over the board with what it chooses to load but at this point I'm not writing any possibility off.

 

Please help, I'm desperate.

 

Thanks, in advance.

Want to add that this is another code I'm getting:
 
DNS_PROBE_FINISHED_NXDOMAIN

 

Don't know if it will help or not but I'm trying to give as much info as possible...

I am experiencing the same issues. i have Google Chrome latest version with Windows 7 Pro. 

 

Do notice "Resolving Host" in task bar while pages try to load. 

 

My other laptop runs Windows XP Pro with Chrome and loads fine. Both use same WiFi network.

After researching on Google, I am pleased to report a possible solution. Time will tell if it resolves the issue.
 
For Windows 7 Pro Users:
 
1. Verify network protocol Link-Layer Discovery Mapper I/O Driver is installed and box checked. 
2. Flush DNS at the Command Prompt as Administrator. ipconfig /flushdns
3. Restart computer
 
Pages now loading quickly for almost an hour with Google Chrome. 
 
An additional step may be done if needed.
 
In Internet Protocol Version 4, check: “Use the following DNS server address” and input your DNS number in the preferred DNS Server field. 
 
Pages still loading fast 2 hours later.
