Can someone tell me how I could get a clue to tell if this problem is being caused by either AOL having too many dialup users on a line, spyware, malware, IE, microsoft or wrong settings on my part. For the last ten days or so, when I click on a website to visit, it takes so long to load that I get disgusted and x-out. I am using a dialup modem with AOL as my ISP. I have Windows XP Professional w/sp2. Memory is 128MB. After numerous calls to AOL and no fix, I happened to notice what I think is happening. I cleared my AOL browser cache and made note that the maximum cache size was around 5000KB. All I did was access the Google webite and then checked to see how many KB's accumulated in the current browser cache - it was 7340KB. So, something is filling up the browser cache at an alarming rate. I used to have a hijacked IE homepage that read About-blank, but I got rid of that by unchecking Enable third party brower, and this time Google remained as my IE homepage. I wonder if that has something to do with this? I don't know much about computers, could this be settings or what? Maybe one clue is that when I try to access a particular website called turnerclassicmovies, all I get is the background color of the homepage and then my computer freezes. I thought that maybe it is because it is a big site, but I can still get ebay after a few minutes, so I don't know. If someone has the time, I need help, Thanks

first of all casino don't put pointless posts up!!!! You should know this as your in Geeku. and people that can really help won't because they usually respond to topics that have no replies.

Now back to you LABEESH, welcome to geeks to go.
I can't believe that it takes that long to load ebay, shouldn't take that long and you said that you had a hijack browser at one point. Which leads me to think that you have Malware on your computer. Please post a log in the Malware area with a hijack log. It may take you a while do to so however you must take the steps to get aide from a professional at geeks to go. I would help you out myself but i don't have enough computer knoledge at the moment. Please procede to the following URL to get some aide. Thanx.

But before you post a topic please go here and download hijack this, after doing so do a scan, then copie and paste the information under a new topic under the malware forum.
You can find Hijack this at the following URL. Also read up on some of the information given here so that you can get some help quicker and end this problem.
