Hey Guys, :tazz:
I'm stuck with this problem, I can access some sites like Goolge, MSN, Yahoo, GeeksToGo! But sometimes the pages dont load at all! It just shows the loading bar few mins then it says page unavailble! I usually re-fresh the page and it works sometimes it doesn't! And it get's worse!!!Sometimes when I refresh, it says page unavailble so I close the IE Window and re-open it sometimes it works and other times you cant use it at all so then I have to restart my computer ot wait like ten mins!!!!!Because the page takes so long to load I usually end up automatically signing out of GTG Forums!(thatz getting really annoying)I mean come on, this is a brand new computer!!!!Could be my modem?
Please Help!!!
Regards RockyIV

First, can you clear out your temp files completely. Download & install CleanUp.
Run it, reboot when prompted. See if it helps anything. If it doesn't, try better browser than IE. Get Firefox here and try if those sites work there;
http://www.mozilla.org/

Can you also check that you are allowing cookies for GTG.

Is the problem with all the sites you visit or only with few of them?
Have you checked your PC for malware..

Firefox is not a "better" browser, and will not solve what seems to be an internet connection problem, since it affects 3 computers. You will need to describe your network, and how you connect to the internet- cable, dsl, dial-up, if you have a router etc.

Well, I use a adsl line, and I got a wireless router few days ago, for my sister's computer and and my dad's computer? Could that be the problem and what'z the difference between IE and FireFox?
PS:When I try to read any attachments through hotmail, It will send me to the log-in page, and if I log-in it sends me to My Inbox!!!!

Firefox does everything IE does internet wise except better. Easiest way to find out why we all think its so good is to give it a try.
