Internet Sites Load Extrememly Slowly, and Don't Load Fully

Question: Internet Sites Load Extrememly Slowly, and Don't Load Fully

Internet access is very slow. It takes up to 3 minutes to get a page to load, and I have to hit 'Reload' 2-3 times before a site finally loads. When it does, Firefox still shows the site as loading. This problem appeared after one of three events. On the same day, I downloaded Babylon and FoxLingo. I have uninstalled both, and removed and remaining registry entries. I also received an email from my fan site on Ning (I am an author) requesting approval for a blog post. The link took me to my fan site, but there was no blog posted. I discovered it was the usual spam for male enhancement drugs, but perhaps it was hiding a more malicious virus. I cleaned up my Ning site and notified them. I have had the problem since. I ran AdAware and AVG, and only came up with minor cookies. I also ran SDFix, including catchme, and got 0 hits. I ran Malwarebytes, which only showed the SDFix files and 2 low-level threats. I also ran HiJackThis, but the log showed nothing that should not be present. All that leads me here. I have followed the procedure in the Prep Guide. FYI-I had to run GMER 3 times. It caused my system to freeze the first two times it finished scanning, which took over 10 hours. Outside of the Internet, my computer runs other software smoothly. I have a brand new ASUS MB, 500GBHD, AMD chip and 4GB DD2 memory-less than 3 months old. I'm also running ZoneAlarm.DDS (Ver_09-12-01.01) - NTFSx86 Run by Owner at 20:04:23.79 on Tue 03/16/2010Internet Explorer: 8.0.6001.18702 BrowserJavaVersion: 1.6.0_18Microsoft Windows XP Home Edition

Preferred Solution: Internet Sites Load Extrememly Slowly, and Don't Load Fully

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Hey all,

I found this forum doing a Google search for some computer help - I'm hoping someone here might have some ideas regarding a problem I've encountered.

Over the last couple of days, I've noticed that certain web pages are loading very slowly on my desktop, or not at all. Some pages work great, while others won't even show up at all until I refresh them several times. I've tried to notice a pattern, and it's possible that secure page (https) and/or pages with forms are giving my computer the most trouble, but I can't be positive. Some more details:

This phenomenon is occurring in both Firefox 3.0.10 and IE 7.

My computer is running XP and I connect through a wireless router. I use McAfee SecurityCenter.

I have made two changes to my home setup recently...

1. I moved my router from the floor to the top of a bookshelf, which has greatly increased my supposed connection speed to about 50Mbps.

2. I set up a wireless printer on my network.

That's really all I can think of to say about the issue at the moment. Do these clues help illuminate what might be going on?

Thanks so much for any help!

I've just started having this problem and its killing me.

I have 2 computers. My server is running windows 2000 server, and the secondary computer is running xp Pro.

The internet was working fine on my secondary computer, and then one day, it just started becoming slow, and it would not load pages (images wouldn't fully load, some pages wouldn't load at all). If i type in a url in the address bar for IE it would load the page quickly (probably from cache), but then proceeding to click links would cause "Page not found" or "timed out" errors.

I know that i can reach these sites, i ping them and get normal responses. It seems that IE is just not displaying them properly or something. The internet on my server computer works perfectly fine.

I have 2 nic cards in the server computer, 1 recieving the cable modem, and one receiving a LAN cable from my Hub.

Anybody have any ideas? Like i said, it worked on my secondary cmputer before. Also, i hooked up another computer to my hub and the internet was working fine, and then i installed Service Pack 3 and it started crapping out like mentioned above.

This is driving me NUTS!! ahhh. please help.

I recently replaced my Dell with Windows 7 with a new Dell laptop with Windows 8.1. I am taking online classes. I have noticed that both my and pages load slowly, including the opening pages, and any links (before or after password entered). Videos load slowly (not from other sites). I downloaded an Endnote program that typically takes 5-10 minutes to download. It took 2.5 hours this morning. I have found:
The same thing happens on Chrome, IE, and Firefox.
I did not have this issue before with my previous computer (windows 7)
I have an Ipad. Both sites load quickly on the Ipad.
The desktop computer I use at work loads both sites quickly.
I have called Dell, who had me return WIndows 8.1 to the original settings, no change.
I have cleaned the cache and flushed DNS cache, and emptied recyling bin, no change.
I have contacted microsoft windows, and have reset IE, no change.
I have contacted the tech help at the .edu sites, without assistance other than the above, no change.
I changed the preferred and alternate DNS server (due to a tip I read on this site), no change.
Microsoft wants to charge me to diagnose my new computer.
Other .edu sites (that I don't have a connected password with) load quickly.

Any suggestions? Thanks in advance.

Hi Techguy Forums!

I ran into a problem two days ago, where sites like, CBC or Facebook, many other forums looking for solutions before finding this one will endlessly load, sometimes it finally does load, it has no pictures, just the names of all the links basically the bare-bones of the sites. Some things that I have tried before posting

-ipconfig/flushdns release renew
-Ran Malwarebytes no threats,
-Ran Norton Antivirus, Nothing removed it, downloaded Avast, ran, nothing, uninstalled.
-Ran all updates on Microsoft security essentials / Windows Defender
-Deleted Firefox, Google Chrome (Both W8 mode and Desktop mode), reset Internet Explorer (Both W8 mode and Desktop mode) reinstalled,
-Admin CMD ran netsh ipv4 ipv6 etc.
-Restarted Modem & Router 10++ times,
-Tried both wired and wireless connections zero difference
-Did a system restore to date that it DID work,
-uninstalled all programs that were downloaded within time frame of not working,
-Tried running in Safemode with networking,
-Updated Java, adobe, Flash

at the point where I'm about to just wipe the computer, but would like to attempt to fix it before going to the last resort.

Any suggestions?

For quite a few weeks, my internet has been loading pages very slowly. There is no problem with the download speed, but each page it goes to takes long to load and this has never happened before. Doing a speed test on showed no problem with the internet speed. Resetting my modem, scanning viruses on my laptop, flushing dns, using registry fixers and switching off my firewall didn't help. I've tested the internet using other laptops and it was normal, so I'm sure the problem is with my laptop.

A week before this happened, my laptop was attacked by a malware "xp antivirus pro 2013", but I solved it with the registry fixing software and Malwarebytes. After fixing the virus, I realised that my bluetooth rfcomm driver, and dvd/cd-rom drive driver, microsoft kernel audio splitter and mixer drivers, apple usb driver had some problems, which were auto-fixed subsequently other than the bluetooth rfcomm driver. I currently still currently encounter the problem of being unable to sync my ipod nano with my itunes. After the incident, I cannot open my firewall settings, which I also solved. I'm not sure if the virus or the solution messed the registry or anything because this internet problem only occurred a week after that saga.

I cannot do a system recovery because the earliest possible backdate is after this problem occurred. I cannot reformat my laptop because I don't have the Windows installation CD. So does anyone have a clue to my ... Read more

Hello All,
I'll apologise right now if I have this in the wrong forum and if so could someone point me in the right direction.

I've found that our internet is running very slow, meaning when I call up a web page (ie it takes forever to load. It used to be superfast.
Everything else on my computer seems to work fine. (ie opening documents or programs)

Chaslang had helped me awhile back to deal with a malware issue and also directed me to "How to protect yourself from Malware", so I know my system is clean.

Could the issue possible be with Zone Alarm which I have on my computer?

Any suggestions or direction would be appreciated. Thanks in advance.

Answer:Internet Pages Load Very Slowly

Assuming you've got a cable modem? Reset your modem by unplugging it completely (power and from puter to modem). Let it sit for a minute or two, then reconnect and turn on your modem. This resets it, and will usually clear up such symptoms if they hadn't been there previously.

If you have dial-up internet, try moving your modem card to a different slot. It's possible it's trying to use an IRQ that's conflicting with something else in your computer. Not possitive a conflict would effect connection in that way, so I'm betting you are on a cable server.

I've got a computer here that has a problem with IE6, it won't fully load pages. When i go to pages, some will fully load, others will load partially, but not display the full page. For example when I go to Shacknews, I see only the Shacknews logo and header bar. I've done full spyware and virus scans, but no luck. I've thrown Firefox on and it works just fine, but this person needs IE for some sites that they use for school.

I have always worked in Chrome. My work page won't load anymore, as of last week. I tried it in Internet Explorer, and then tried FireFox. Chrome and Internet Explorer both say the problem is with the site, not with my computer or my firewall. FireFox says the site may be busy and can't be contacted. Every other employee, including my husband's computer in the next room, can load this site.
I have tweaked my proxy settings to allow automatic connections. I have disabled Kaspersky and Ad Mucher. I have done three progressively early system restores, to times when I was able to load the web page. I have turned the computer on and off after each new fix I tried. Nothing has worked.

My wife's laptop with xp has no issues with the same sites.

Yahoo sites load partially displaying only text and text links.
While searching for remedies, I found yahoo answers that appeared like there might be useful information but could not get them to load either.

Two other example sites that do not load at all:

Firefox reports that they failed to load, Chrome reports that there was no data received.

I have Avast AV running, have tried clearing any and all rootkits. Tried Malware bytes, tried flushing the DNS cache. And as far as I can tell I am virus free yet nothing has helped.

I even tried looking up the IP address of using nslookup and could not get any of the returned IP addresses to load.

Hello all,

Thank you first of all for reading this thread.
I have just received my laptop (Dell Inspiron 9400) back from repairs with hard drive replaced and noticed that it runs into a problem that I had managed to fix previously, but now have forgotten how to.

What basically happens is that after installing all windows updates (note, it does not occur when not installing certain updates, but there are several critical ones that do) and booting up Windows XP MCE2005, I cannot fully load most (not all) webpages for about 5 minutes.

When this problem occurs, the page either won't load at all and causes IE6 to hang or it loads partially and then hangs up. During that time I can only force close it and that works fine, except that trying again will result in the same problem.

If I leave the hanging window(s) open or wait the 5 minutes, the open windows will mysteriously load up as if nothing happened and any new instances of IE will work fine too. This of course is very annoying when you have to wait 5 minutes after each reboot to actually be able to view the majority of web pages.

I am pretty certain that it is a problem with one of the windows updates that affect IE6, because I can run webpages just fine using firefox even right after reboot.

I tried reformatting and reinstalling windows already last night. Again, only happens after certain critical security updates are installed...

Also, I already have the key FEATURE_PROTECT_DECOMPRESSION_FILTER_FROM_ABORT_KB9423... Read more

Hello, My Thinkpad T520, Windows 7 Pro takes over a minute to load any webpage  after waking from sleep. The wifi icon shows that the network has connected to the internet after about 10 seconds from wake up. But if I attempt to use a browser to load any webpage, I must wait nearly a minute before the page will load. After that, pages load quickly. This problem occurs in multiple browsers (FF, IE, Chrome). I am using Intel Centrino Advanced N-6205 wireless adapter. I've updated the wireless driver and BIOS. I've cleaned out my registry using CCleaner, and I've defragmented. One bit of advice I've read that I've tried from these forums does NOT work: Uncheck from Device Manager under the Power Management tab for my wireless adapater the option to Allow the Computer to Turn Off This Device to Save Power. Unchecking that option (which would seem to keep the driver on) makes the problem worse because the wifi will not reconnect at all. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

Answer:Thinkpad reconnects wifi to internet after wake up from sleep, but web pages load very slowly

Hi, welcome to the forum!
It seems like a problem between your Access Point and your wifi card rather than just a problem with the card.
Are there other wireless clients associated with the access point? Do you know if there is a "sleep mode" activated for that device? Please give more details about your wifi network setup and the way it connects to the internet..

Hi there...
For a few weeks I have had problems loading SOME internet sites. It seems like something is blocking only SOME popular internet servers. They either don't load, or it takes ages (10-20 minutes) and even after that they don't load correctly.
For example, I can't open (something is blocking the server or (something is blocking the server, and in hotmail most button images do not load (something is blocking the server
Most other internet sites load without any problems at all, including images. The problem ONLY exists with SOME specific internet sites!!!
I have scanned my computer with an endless number of scanners including AVG and SUPER-AS, everything comes out clean. I have Norton running, and I have also tried disabling it of course, but no change. Disabling Windows Firewall doesn't help either (but again, those programs have been running for a long time without causing any problems).
I have cleaned my computer with ATF-Cleaner (and others), defragmented my disk, and I've even done a file search for those server name strings, but they don't exist in any file on my computer. It is for sure NOT a specific browser problem either because Firefox and IE show exactly the same behavior, started doing so at the same time.

I have the exact same problem with my HP Pavillion Slimline s5, 1110 PC (Windows 7 Home Edition). Internet works fine on Time Warner Cable and severely bugs out on CenturyLink DSL. I can ping some servers but can really only get small amounts of bandwidth through. For example, I'll get search results from Google & Youtube, but can't go to most sites. I can get into Netflix, but only the background will load.

I've gone round and round with CenturyLink help service and they insist it's a computer problem (which I agree).
I called HP Customer Support 2x and the Indian jerks just screwed with me both times. The first one kept cutting me off repeating his opening line but slightly different each time. The 2nd one just hung up on me when I read my computer model number. I didn't even have an opportunity to be a pain in the butt, they were just screwing around from the git-go.

I tried OpenDNS
Removed all garbageware that came with the machine including Norton.
Office Depot let me exchange it for the same model and it performs the same way.
I've tested the DSL modem with another computer on Windows 7 Ultimate, and it works fine. I suspect HP has a trojan on here that isn't playing well with the authentication for the DSL network. Whenever I type in the address bar it goes to It could be a Home Edition problem though.

Google works fast, but i can't view half of the websites that show up in the searches. Though at my house on Comcast, it works great. The sites will try to load forever, never time out or any errors, just "waiting for" forever.I've tried...disabled ip6turned off windows firewall.came with Symantec, used norton removal tool.using hard wired at both locations.used static IP and dynamic, tried multiple dns serversreinstalled NICacts the same way while in safemodeinstalled and ran 0 malware programsinstalled and removed avast no proxy serversI can ping sites that won't loadI plugged in a spare macbook into the verizon modem, and it worked fine.Ordered a new verizon modem, will arive in a few days.I brought the computer back home with me, and its working great here like before.Any ideas?

Hi all hope some body can help me out here.
Over the last couple of weeks i have been having a lot of trouble with some sites that i visit regular loading up very very slowley.
The sites that are slow are mainley forum based sites including this one. Normal browsing on the net is very quick and no change to normal.
When i click on the sites the site banner seems to come up pretty quick but the rest of the page sometimes comes minutes later and its really starting to bug me as one of the sites i am a moderater on.
I run an antivirus scan evrynight (AVG) and i have also run AVG antispyware and spybot and they have all come back clear.Once a week i also clear all the temp files cookies ect with ATF cleaner.
Please bare with me if i don't respond straight away to your reply's as i have already stated this site is also loading up at snails pace too.

Thanks Gary

Answer:Slow internet, many sites don't load...

Thanks everyone for taking the time to read this, I know that someone would have helped me when they were able to and I do appreciate that. I just wanted to let you all know that my problems have been solved.

My Norton Security software was interfering and stopping me from accessing email, shops and banking (secure sites). The slow internet problems I solved by using Malware removal software (I know I probably shouldnt, but it helped).

Problems solved. Thanks for your time.

Hi to all!!

Happy new year!!! Guys, this time maybe someone can help me.... is the first time this happen to me..

I have today the issue that I am unable to load certain websites, I can enter but whenever I click on continue to navigate in that same site for example FACEBOOK, I see the operation just loads and dont go anywhere, after that remains in same condition unless I cancel or close the browser.

I checked the firewall, and also the antivirus, but nothing seems wrong, I can get in into HOTMAIL, GOOGLE, but again certain sites if I search something on GOOGLE, get frozen again .

Any ideas or help?

Answer:Unable to load certain internet sites

by the way:
After a while can comes sometimes with this page:

The connection was reset

The connection to the server was reset while the page was loading.

* The site could be temporarily unavailable or too busy. Try again in a few

* If you are unable to load any pages, check your computer's network

* If your computer or network is protected by a firewall or proxy, make sure
that Firefox is permitted to access the Web.

And then does not do nothing at all

I have seen lots of posts from people who cannot load secure sites, but I can only load secure sites. Here is my scenario... I was about to upgrade XP to SP2 so, as per the instructions, I ran Ad-aware and Norton Anti-virus. I removed 5 pieces of "spyware" though they were really only benign looking cookies ( Once I was done I opened IE6.1 to download SP2, but for some reason could not load the Microsoft site (or any other). I opened it in Firefox without a problem. I then downloaded "Windows XP Service Pack 2 Network Installation Package for IT Professionals and Developers" since you can only perform the auto update from IE. SP2 installed without a hitch, but still no explorer. Then I upgraded IE 6.1 to IE 7 Beta 2, but it still has the same issue. I can only load secure sites (https). I have tried changing the security settings, but to no avail. Has anyone seen or heard of this issue? I have been using IE for 11 years and have never had a problem with it that couldn't be resolved by a re-boot. Firefox and Mozilla are working great on secure and unsecured sites, but I ocassionally need IE. Any input would be appreciated,

Answer:Internet Explorer will ONLY load secure sites

Have you tried looking into any rules that may have been made in your firewall/security programs for IE, or temporary disabling the firewall?

My ISP is stumped, Dell's tech support is stumped, *I'M* stumped, hopefully you guys can help.I'm having problems connecting to some websites - I can load some without any problems, and can't reach others. I can load just fine, but can't connect to any of Dell's sites. works, does not. Tried IE, Firefox and Netscape - same problem with each, so it's not a browser issue. Hooked another PC up to the modem, and it's working fine, so the problem isn't with the modem or my ISP, which means something's wrong with the PC. Turned off, then uninstalled my firewall - nothing. Cleared cookies, cache, reset network connection, still nothing. Re-boot in safe mode with networking, after shutting off all third party startup and system apps. Nothing. Open a DOS prompt to ping sites I can't connect with, nothing - pinging the URL times out, pingng IPs time out. Network card seems to be running fine per the device manager. Just ran Ad Aware and Spy Bot, nothing particularly offensive - a couple of tracking cookies. AVG *just* finished its scan, nothing there either.

Answer:Intermittent Internet Connection Problems - Some Sites Load, Others Don't.

Problem solved. Looks like it was a malfunctioning NIC - troubleshot every concievable alternative flushing DNS, TCP/IP, factory restore of Windows and software... nothing worked; tried plugging in a backup and hey-presto, everything's loading fine.

Seemed a really unlikely problem - you'd think if the NIC was fried, ALL internet access would be down, or at the very least it'd be completely random outages and not *always* loading some sites and always *not* loading others - but there you go.

(since searching for possible solutions, I found a LOT of people with similar problems, and very few actually posting solutions, hopefully this may help someone else down the line)

Hey guys,

Here's the challenge:-

Running Windows 7/XP wired by ethernet to a home router.

A lot of sites I'm visiting seem to instantly crash (website not found) and need refreshed a few times before loading up.

Sometimes they don't load from clicking a Google search, and no matter how many times I click refresh they don't work. But if I go to the address bar and hit enter, it loads!

And one or two sites that I visit just won't load at all.

What I've tried that did NOTHING:-

Fresh installing XP and 7.

Chrome, IE and Firefox.

New LAN drivers.

Flushing cache, renewing IP.

Installing a USB wifi stick.

Safe mode.


My iPod on wifi loads them all perfectly.

If I boot up mini Linux, all sites work perfectly!

If I boot up mini XP, the sites work after refreshing a few times (even the ones that don't work at all during normal boot up).


Hope that jumble makes sense!

Any ideas how to fix this?

Thanks a lot!

Hey guys ? so I have a huge issue, not too sure what virus I?ve run into. I?ll start from the beginning.

Yesterday as I was closing down my computer I noticed a Java icon on my taskbar, and I wasn?t running any java apps that I know of. I closed it down, and firefox froze on me. I finally decided to CTL+ALT+DEL firefox but I think the damage was done. I immediately ran a malwarebytes scan and it found 5 things, all Trojan/virus related (from what I remember they were avsoft/avsuite related because I remember thinking that they looked like Avast). I deleted them and rebooted. Upon reboot, my computer took forever from the login in screen to get to the desktop/icons. I read some info on running ?explorer.exe? but it was already running. I shut it down and tried to run ?explorer.exe? in the RUN option in the task manager. When it came up, the desktop and icons appeared, however they looked like an old OS. I have Windows XP, but it looked like windows 98 or something (gray task bar and task manager, hopefully that makes sense).

I have malwarebytes, avast, mcafee, so I ran scans with those and they didn?t find anything. I could not connect to the internet, so I started up in safe mode and tried a scan then. Came up with nothing. Finally, I did a system restore to yesterday before I got infected and when I restarted it took forever to load again BUT it was back to the XP look (blue task bar/manager) thankfully. I was able to connect to firefox BUT when I go to antivirus sites I ... Read more

First, some general info on my computer:
* Dell Latitude D510 Notebook (purcahsed in January of 2006)
* Windows XP Home - SP2
* 80GB 5400RPM HDD
* Pentium M Dothan, 1.86GHZ, 2 MEGB

Second, a little background on the events leading to the problem:
* I'm a heavy Internet user (about 16 hours per day of blogging, social media stuff, web based email, downloading music, files, video, etc.). Typically, I leave my computer continually running for several days at a time. Last week (Jan 08), I rebooted my system after about 3 days of continual use and this is what happened, and is still happening (step by step guide)

After the upgrade the BIOS recognized the new RAM and went to the XP load screen with the load bar. It then goes black and does not load to the desktop.

He has put in the old RAM, put everything in different slots, and every combination, same results with all of the RAM. Even the OLD RAM.

I suggested he boot in safe mode and that worked. But he cannot get it to boot normally.

I suggested he boot from disk and that did NOT work.


Reset CMOS?

Some will sit there just thinking with a blank screen, some will get a tiny part of the site loaded but never finish. What has gone wrong? I reset Internet Explorer (which is IE 9) hoping that would help. NOPE! There were some Windows update that the computer did not quite sure when, so I don't know if that has anything to do with it. I would just like my internet back. Can someone please help?Thanks

I should also add that I have never gotten an error message no matter how long I let it sit there. Also every other computer, cellphone or what not that is connected to this network doesn't have a problem.

Whenever I go to any website it won't load. Whenever I go to it loads partially. The 'google' title won't show and I cannot search either because it won't load. I know it's not my internet because I can go to sites on firefox just fine. I also noticed I cannot delete temp internet files either through the settings or though disk cleanup (it just stays the same). Can anyone tell me what is wrong with my IE and how to fix this?

Answer:Cannot load websites fully

Can you delete the items in Safe Mode? Safe mode you should be able to do it. Do you have a registry cleaner or a spyware scanner?

I don't know if this is the right section or not for my question (since it isn't really hardware related.)

When I boot up my laptop, it has only 30 processes loaded. 2-5 minutes later, all the rest of them load up. One of them is my network connections, so I have no access to the internet or the local network for a couple minutes after the OS has loaded.

I noticed that when I do a virus/spyware scan, this issue goes away, so it is safe to guess that it is spyware related, but the problem is it keeps recurring.

Any thoughts?

PS. Please move the topic if it is in the wrong section. Thanks

Answer:Processes do not fully load.

If you think it it spyware related, go through Warez' guide.

New computer with XP. All seems fine except for two web pages that I use a great deal, one of them is for my job. The page loads but appears with different colored graphics, that is to say the graphics are the same just different colors. When I try to open some of the reports I need the report will in fact open but most of the content is missing, just blank fields where the verbage should be. My company laptop uses XP as well and loads these pages perfectly. My old computer with 98 loaded them fine as well.

My friend's computer was infected in exactly the same way as the guy in . I downloaded a new anti virus program called NOD32, scanned the system and it removed the Virus Burster program. I then tried to uninstall the original installer which was called VideoCompressionCodec, which first made me reboot, but then allowed me to uninstall it from the Control Panel. I then realised that I was still getting popups for some dodgy dating agency, and discovered that they were being generated by a program called "Public Messenger v2.03". Trying to uninstall this, it made me go through the same rigamarole as the previous time, but this too said it had uninstalled correctly requiring a further reboot to complete.
Meanwhile, the NOD32 seemed to be conflicting with the Google Desktop Search, which she had installed a while back for some reason, so I decided to uninstall that too. Unfortunately, it wouldn't let me do this, just popping with a message, "reboot now to complete installation" . When this hadn't worked, I looked through the google help pages, where it seemed to be a fairly common problem (typical google!) and after suggesting several things, they said the only remaining option was to remove it manually by deleting the registry keys directly, which I proceeded to do, using regedt32 (for the first time ever...) ]

This started about three months ago. Wherever I go on the net, the webpages won't fully load. Sometimes only the background loads and then nothing. I refresh the page and then maybe the full page will load. This site loads only 13 threads and then stops loading. If the page loads longer than 5 minutes, I hit refresh. I gave up and decided to just post for help instead of searching.

I'm using Firefox 4.0.1 and am on dial-up.

If there's any info you need about my laptop, please let me know where to find it.

Thank you.

Answer:Pages won't fully load

Dial-up is going to take a really long time to load fully a page with a lot of graphics. People building web pages do not take into consideration people who still use dial-up. So they build web pages rich with graphics, which doesn't take very long to load if you have broadband but will take forever with dial-up. You will have to be patient or get DSL or Cable modem.

When I open websites such as and even the tech support page some stuff isn't loading. There are spots where ?banners?

Answer:IE pages won't load fully

Those little red x's are called "image placeholders" and usually show up when either your browser or firewall are set to block some types of images.You can go to Tools/Internet options and on the Advanced tab,scroll down to Multimedia. Uncheck "Show image download placeholders" and then put a check in "Show Pictures"

You may also have to go into your firewall settings and make the same settings changes.

Hey, recently, out of the blue, I've been having a really odd problem. When attempting to launch several programs (the gimp 2.2 for windows, GAIM, and an Ultima Online client), they haven't been opening but simply loading up in memory (and not to their fullest extent, either). To see what was causing the problem, I ran the gimp 2.2 through OllyDebug to see where the loading stopped--turns out the loading simply stops on msctfime.ime. Any attempt to locate information on what this problem could be has come to no avail.

When I ran the Ultima Online client & GAIM through the debugger, mscms.dll comes up as the culprit. Even when I try to replace both these files--I come to no avail. It's not the file's that are corrupted.

Hey everyone, I got a copy of Windows XP (home) and its not working anymore. It boots up until the "welcome screen" (which I didnt previuosly have on, it only comes up to tell me this) and then says "Windows 30 day trial is up and is not activated, Click OK to activate now". You click "ok" and it goes to what would be the tel # screen, but it says "Windows Xp is already activated click ok to continue" and logs me back out to the welcome screen. If you click cancel, it just goes back to the welcome screen. Before, a dialog box came up and said "there is x# of days left to activate would you like to do it now?" But no matter what button you clicked it would say windows is already activated and continue to load. Now that the counter has run out of "time" I cant get into windows anymore.

If anyone knows how to get to the system restore before windows boots that would really help. Thanks a lot -Nick

It's a chatroom kind of webpage, and it would not load the text box where you type posts or the window where the posts were displayed, yet everything else such as the background and the advertisment banner on top would.

Even after an OS Reload and reinstalling adobe reader and player, it would still "load with errors". Obviously OS reloads usually don't solve everything, so I hope somebody can help.

Ctrl-Alt-Delete just brings up a permanent black screen around which I can move the mouse icon. I have to hard reset the laptop by pressing and holding the power button.

Hello. First time poster here!

So, I'm using the latest version of Firefox on Win XP. These are not new developments, I've been using them for quite a while.

Recently, I switch my ISP to clearwire, and that's when this problem started. (not sure if it's related or not)

Whenever I try to load any videos (youtube, ebaumsworld, etc) they begin loading and then stop abruptly about 1/3 of the way in. When I refresh the page and try to re-load the video, it doesn't even start over. It just hangs and does nothing until I navigate away from the page and come back, wherein it repeats the above problem.

I've tried disabling any firewalls. All download managers are uninstalled.
I've also tried to uninstall and reinstall adobe flash but that doesn't work either. In fact, on some pages, i'm still told I don't have the latest player even though I've uninstalled/reinstalled the damn thing about ten times.

When I set up my Clearwire internet, I had to troubleshoot with a tech support person over the phone and we changed some stuff in my network connection settings. They didn't seem too important, so I took little notice of exactly what we were doing, but we got the internet to work just fine....except for this stupid video thing.

Any help?

Answer:[SOLVED] Videos won't load fully

Any ideas at least?

Some further info:
I am now using downthemall, which worked great the first time I used it but has started not working at all now. Something I didn't mention above was that I also can't download any file to my hard drive. (this was before and after getting "downthemall") It will do that same "download partially, stop, restart, no download" thing that the youtube videos do. My roommate is also having the problem, so I'm thinking more and more that it may be clearwire. Maybe my modem is blocking something? Or my router? I don't know, but it would be great if someone else did!

I am having an issue where some of the programs I run dont fully initialize on Windows 7 64-Bit. Right now there are only 2 doing it and both are 32-bit, but I don't have very many programs installed so I can't say for absolute certainty that it is only 32-bit programs that are doing this but I am pretty sure it is. I have attached pictures of what happens for both programs:

and with WinAmp:

With WinAmp it isnt a big deal because when I switch tabs on the top (the ones that say Media, Video, Browser, and Visualization) and then back again the mouse cursor changes to the one with the arrow and blue circle and then finishes loading the rest of WinAmp. I am using the 64-bit version of Win7, just recently upgraded from 32-bit XP and never had this problem on XP. I have no idea what is causing this and haven't heard of it ever so I'm totally stumped.

Apart from occassionally after a heavy session on complicated web pages (e.g. bank accounts) further pages refused to load until I cleared the IE or Firefox cache, upon which they've loaded fine.But I've now taken the plunge with Broadband (USB linked). Connection is fine (most of the time ...) and most simple web pages load fine. But in last few days more complex pages refuse to fully load. It appears they're still loading but no matter how long I wait, nothing comes up. If I revert to a simpler website it works fine.Indeed, as I type the screen tells me its still transferring data from "" although the page seems to have loaded fine ...I've tried emptying caches but makes no difference.Any ideas anyone - please treat me simply !!!Best wishesChris

Answer:New Broadband - pages won't fully load

What's your BB's speed?What computer do you have? Can you give some specifications please,so members can help?<< Connection is fine (most of the time ...)>> Why is that? Have you checked this out with the Tiscali people? <<most simple web pages load fine. But in last few days more complex pages refuse to fully load>> Depending on the age of your pc, try lower the display property from high to medium.

Lately when I boot my computer opens, but it doesn't connect to the internet and my icons do not appear in the tool bar. This forces me to do a hard shut down and reboot (restart just hangs up and never restarts). Has anyone experienced similar problems or is this unique to my five year old PC?

Ok. Heres my problemo.

When I turn the computer on,windows starts loading with that blue bar going across the screen but it freezes about half way through loading and it just stays like that.

So, I went into safe mode and I tried system restore so I can get things like they were a few days back. However, I choose the date I want to go back to but the "next" button wont work. I click it and nothing happens.

So can someone please please tell me how to fix system restore or give me a completely different idea on how to get windows not to freeze up. Thanks a lot, appreciate anyone who can help.

Answer:Windows wont load fully

Will any other Restore dates work?

since last week i got a problem with about every video on the internet except for youtube videos...
the problem is that if i try to play a video on a site or a posted video on youtube in whatever browser i use it loads and plays the first few seconds of the video just fine and than stops loading. and if i then skip the video ahead it wil play for a few seconds again and stops.
the same goes for when i tried downloading an update from flash player, it downloads for 10% and then stops giving a error and tells me to try again.

now its nothing with my network cause i tried different networks and different browsers and its al the same. so i was thinking it might be a problem with my laptop itself... but i wouldn`t know what it could be.
i ran a virus scan it picked up some viruses but after dealing with those the problem remains.

so if someone knows what to do could you please help me?

Answer:videos wont fully load

Think you may need to continue to look at your computer to clean it out, you don't really have enough info here to let someone determine what it could be.
Some of the things that would be useful to know are -
What operating system you use
What type of connection you have
Checking to see if settings have changed
What resources the computer has
You say at the start that video's on web sites do not play but YouTube videos do, then further down you say posted YouTube ones don't play fully, do you mean YouTube videos posted on other sites don't play and only YouTube videos on YouTube play fully?
Personally I think you need to look at the cleaning up of the computer

Whenever I load a new streaming video, the video might download 10-30%, but then it stops streaming. I cannot find anything else that will make it load more. Is there something I can do about this?

This laptop over the last couple of days has started to take an age to load up some webpages. The fan seems to be whirring constantly at times too, and for the first time, I have received the following error message, which could be related (error in multiuser synch module initialisation):
I thought the hang may have been with Online Armor or the cheap TT wireless router, but I cant find anything in the OA history to indicate why. The hang is infrequent, but when it happens loading up websites it can last more than 10 to 15 mins at worst.

Answer:websites dont load fully,

Notice that you haven't had a reply. I am uncertain about this. Google search indicates possibly a corrupt user profile, problems between NetWorx and Online Armor and multiple users logged on.
What happens if you momentarily turn off Online Armor.
You don't happen to have Windows firewall or another firewall active at the same time?

Answer:Web Pages Load Slowly

Hello there, 
Please take a look at this article:;-it-may-not-be-malware/
Also, it's not recommended running multiple Anti-viruses as this can cause the slowness in your machine. You'll will be totally fine with running just one AV. 
Hope this helps!

I have been having a problem loading pdf files ; they seem to load a line at a time. I have been using the Sumatra reader. I also tried a FoxIt reader with the same results. Every now and then ,I get a message telling me that the pdf reader is not the best and I should get a better one but it seems the reader is functioning in that respect.

Is the slowness a function of the reader software or the computer?

I also have a netbook with windows 7 starter and I used the same pdf readers and it functions fast.

I did not download adobe because it seems to take up a lot of room with daily alerts to upgrade. I just want to read a pdf file.

Answer:pdf files load slowly

I've had a cable tech out here: modems fine, fast speed to computer etc. Tech hooked up his laptop to my modem and the pages were smokin!

Hi. About a week or so ago, web pages started loading very when I am on the internet. For example, takes about 20 to 30 seconds to load fully after the browser has indicated it has found the page. I have not installed any new software recently.I checked my DSL speed on CNET and one other location, and it is fine (close to 3Mbps). I have enabled all hidden files and then run all of the following (in safe and normal mode) without finding any viruses or other malware: Microsoft Malicious Software Removal Tool, Stinger.exe, Damage Cleanup engine from Trend Micro, from Trend Micro, Norton Antivirus, A2 Personal, Ad Aware SE Personal Edition, SpyBot Search and Destroy, CWShredder, and Microsoft Anti Spyware. I also downloaded the Firefox browser and Netscape browser, but they both performed the same way as IE 6. I sure hope one of you can help me. Here is a copy of the Hijack This log I generated today. Any advice would be GREATLY APPRECIATED!Logfile of HijackThis v1.99.1Scan saved at 12:09:18 PM, on 7/31/2005Platform: Windows XP SP2 (WinNT 5.01.2600)MSIE: Internet Explorer v6.00 SP2 (6.00.2900.2180)Running processes:C:\WINDOWS\System32\smss.exeC:\WINDOWS\system32\winlogon.exeC:\WINDOWS\system32\services.exeC:\WINDOWS\system32\lsass.exeC:\WINDOWS\system32\Ati2evxx.exeC:\WINDOWS\system32\svchost.exeC:\WINDOWS\System32\svchost.exeC:\Program ...

Answer:Help Please. All Web Pages Load very Slowly

Hello jparker59 and welcome to the BC malware forum. I don't see any issues in the log related to viruses or malware. There is an item with a missing entry so let's remove that first.Start HijackThis and click the Scan button to perform a scan. Look for the following items and click in the checkbox in front of each item to select it:R3 - Default URLSearchHook is missingNow close ALL open windows except HijackThis and click the Fix Checked button to finish the repair.Ok. Here's a couple of things for you to try.Download CleanUp! and install it. Start CleanUp! and do the following:Click the Options button.Make sure only the following are checked:Empty Recycle BinsDelete CookiesDelete Prefetch files (XP only)Scan local drives for temporary filesCleanup! All UsersClick the Ok button to close the Opetions dialog.Click the CleanUp! button to run the cleanup. It may take a while depending on the size of the hard drive so be patient.When it has finished, close CleanUp!.If that doesn't help then try completely uninstall all of the Symantec/Norton products. Sometimes it gets a process or service stuck and it plays havoc with the processing. After it is completely uninstalled, reboot and then install it fresh. Don't forget to update the definistions again.Cheers.OT

Since yesterday internet Explorer 6 takes two to two and a half minutes to load URLs which I have typed in.  What I find puzzling is that sites listed in 'Favourites' come up quickly.  For example if I type I would get this c.2 min delay but as it's in my Favourites list it comes up in a few seconds which doesn't seem logical to me.  I have XP with 512 Kb RAM, AMD Athlon 2.2 GHz chip and ISP is provided by cable.   Any suggestions what I can do please ?   

Answer:Web pages load slowly

First thing I'd do is update your version of Windows by visiting Windows Update and downloading the high-priority updates for your computer.  If you're running IE 6, then you're definitely behind the times.  Keeping your system up-to-date is a regular part of routine maintenance.The next thing I'd do is to run Disk Clean Up and a Defrag.Lastly...I'd make sure my malware protection is up-to-date and run fullsystem scans in Safe Mode.  When them again normally.You can also select which programs you want to run at Startup by running msconfig in the RUN command line.

Hello everyone!
I'm a Vienamese student.My family bought a new PC two months ago.It has a giga G31m main and an E4600 core 2 duo 2.4 ghz chip.It worked well until recently I install windows vista x86 again.At first,It took me about 15 seconds to start working.But after I installed Mz vista force and Netspeeder,It begined taking me over 1 min to load window although I have restored window to the time before(the long green button runs for 25 times!)I'm very tired of waiting for vista loads as well as ireinstall it.Can any one give me some advice? thanks.

Answer:window load too slowly.

Hi daretofail, and welcome to the vista forums,

when you say you restored vista to the time before was this by un-installing the software?

it may be that the software has left a some component set to run at stertup which is causing the delay.

you may want to check your start-up entries
