WIERD internet problem

OK..


I will type in a web page, hit re-fresh or even pull a link off the "favorites" column and the page will either not load and say "the page can not be displayed" or it will load me to msn.autosearch.com


I clik re-fresh a few more times and it loads.


Anyone have any ideas?

Have you run Ad Ware and Spybot to make sure you don't have any spyware programs?

What type of connection are you running? Dial-up? DSL/Cable?

Dial Up connection


I am downloading the latest version of Ad Aware now.

Will let you know!

Thanks

Ever had this problem before?

Could be your ISP.

Just a thought.

Could be spyware. You may want to run ad-aware or spybot.

For more information see this thread => http://www.dvdtalk.com/forum/showthr...ghlight=spybot
