I'm having the same probems as http://www.geekstogo...out-t91972.html

I have Firefox 1.5, free zonealarm 6.1.737.000 and have started to get connection timed out on 2 sites. one is www.http://login.yahoo.com/config/mail?.intl=uk&.lg=uk. I can get the login page but timed out after entering i.d. and password. I also cannot get to see the home page of a bank I use.

I do not have the same ISP as the member above.

Any ideas about what can be preventing access. This only started a few weeks ago with the bank site and now a few days ago with Yahoo??

Any help would appreciated.

I think I may have found out why I have recently been unable to access 2 websites.

About 2 weeks ago I bought and installed an HP printer. Once the software had loaded every time I have started my pc saince I am taken to the XP sign in page (with my name shown), before this I was taken straight to the desk top and never logged in.

I have also checked some shared folders Documents and settings/svoa (SVOA is the maanufacturer of the pc). In The svoa files there are only a couple of files. In the one named cookies there one or 2 text files but there is a text file for both yahoo and my bank website. This is the text from the yahoo text file B0tchsmp1u8l6j&b=3&s=jm

Am I right in thinking that the access is being restricted as the user status on my pc has changed? (presumably the sites expect see svoa but see me as the user instead?) If that is the case how can I change this so I have access.

I'm pretty sure this where the problem lies but I'm not an expert.

Further help would be appreciated and your comments too.

Thanks

Hello and welcome to Geeks to Go.

I don't see how changing your user status or installing HP software could do something like that. I suspect an infection. Try this:


Download and install TrojanRemover from http://www.simplysup...r/download.html

After installing it, run it. When the first screen comes up, click on continue

At the top, click on Utilities and click on each of the following:
  • Reset Windows HOSTS file
  • Repair Layered Service Provider registry entries
Exit out of Trojan Remover. Restart your computer and then try to access the website(s) you couldn't access before.

Hello computerwiz,

Thanks for the help here. I've just tried your suggestion, but nothings changed. It's just these 2 websites which I can access from a friends computer but not my own.

Any other ideas anybody. Thanks in advance.

hello,
computerwiz12890 we do not have permission to give out any information regarding spyware removal.
likite, please proced to the malware removal forum and they'll help you out there. However before doing so do a temp dump and let me know if it fixes your problems. If not go to the malware forum for some help and then come back to this topic and let me know if the problems continues to occure.
thanx
James

OK James.

I think I know what you mean by temp dump - but so I know what I'm doing can you explain a little more.

Thanks

I'm aware of that restriction james, that's why I did not ask likite to do an actual scan with Trojan Remover. Those 2 features of TR I asked him to use can sometimes fix errors that infections cause with internet explorer. I had no intention of actually cleaning an infection if there is one.

likite, please download CCleaner from the following address: http://www.snapfiles...r/ccleaner.html

After installing it, run it. UNcheck all the options in the first section except for Temporary Internet Files and Cookies. For the second section, UNcheck everything. For the third section, check everything except for Empty Recycle Bin. For the last section, leave it unchecked.

Now click on the Applications tab and UNcheck everything except for Cookies under Fire Fox if it is there.

Now click on the button Analyze. After a list of files appears in the window (it may take a while), press the button Run Cleaner. If it asks you to confirm file deletion, press OK. All done!


If the problem persists after doing the cleanning, please follow all the directions found here. After you get to step 5, if your problem is not resolved, post a HijackThis log in the Malware forum. If your problem persists after getting a clean bill of health from a malware expert, return here and we'll continue troubleshooting. If your problem is resolved by a malware expert, let us know. I always like to know the results :tazz: .
