About a week ago I started having trouble with the latest firefox version not loading web pages. I switched to IE 6 and had the same problem. I looked through geekstogo.com browser forum for help. I tried several things suggested in various posts but none have helped. I regularly run virus scans with pc-cillin and spyware scans with ad-aware se and spybot s&d. Several posts suggested doing the scans in safe mode so I did. I couldn't get my virus scanner to work in safe mode but the other two worked with no problem. All I ever came up with is a couple of tracking cookies with low risk rattings. I also did a panda online virus scan but that turned up nothing. I tried the avant browser and it acted the same as the other two browsers. One of the browser forum posts suggested ways to tweak firefox so I tried those with no improvement. First I tried manual tweaks with no improvement. Second I installed firetune for firefox with no improvement. Third I tried a firefox extension fasterfox but that didn't help either. Another post suggested downloading and installing trojan remover. I did that and quick and in-depth scans have tirned up nothing.
I went back to a system restore point 3 days prior to the start of this problem. It didn't help so I went back another 4 days with the same results. I am back to the most recent restore point.
I have uninstalled avant since it didn't work either. I uninstalled the currrent version of firefox with the idea of reinstalling an earlier version. Before doing that, I checked the operation of IE6 and it is the same so I decided to post in this forum first.
I have roadrunner cable internet service. I have talked to them and they say it has to be my computer. I have done several bandwidth speed tests. They have all produced the same results. It will take several tries to get the speed test page to load. Once the pages load, I run the tests. All have been between 3.6 Mbps and 4.2 Mpbs.
I would appreciate any help you can provide. Thank you.
