Browsers randomly won't load sites

  1. I have a recent problem driving me crazy..

    My computer is randomly not loading sites in IE or firefox. When it does finally loads, the sites generally are glitchy. Videos embed in sites play for a few seconds and then won't load. Sometimes they work, sometimes they don't. I have searched and searched looking for answers with negative results. I know exactly when it started...

    The computer is a Dell 15z laptop that is less than 6 mos old. I am very anal about not clicking un-trusted links and shy away from anything that could be unsafe. I use this computer for college and I have lots of important data and university installed programs that I don't want to lose. I was in a class on tuesday and simply opened word and recorded my notes. My laptop connects to the universities internet whenever I am campus. I did not use the internet during this class. When I got home and went on the internet, this problem started.

    I have cleared the cache, changed DNS servers to Google, I have also reset my router and my IP reset their connection to the house. When I try to surf the web on campus it will not work. Other programs connected to the internet work just fine. I stream netflix through my tv and it works without a skip also.

    I must have received a virus or something I have now knowledge about. I would greatly appreciate any suggestions that anyone may have. I really don't want to reformat my harddrive and spend all those hours resetting my programs for school.
    I have included a scan from Hijackthis for your review. Thank you!

    Welcome to TechSpot! I'll be glad to check the system or malware.

    But we do not use HijackThis to screen for malware. The version you used is also outdated so you can uninstall it. I will give you a link and directions for HJT at a later time.
    ====================================
    Do you notice that any particular types won't load such as secure sites?
    Do you use a Site Advisor?
    Does "random" means the same sites won't load-or-does it mean any site won't load a random times?
    Explain "finally"- is this slow loading?
    Explain "glitchy." Does this refer just to video and sound? Have you checked the Device Manager for any hardware error for either?
    ----------------------
    Clarify this please:
    The server is set to the Google Public DNS Did you set that? It would seem that wouldn't be appropriate to both your home use and the school internet.
    =====================================
    Note Since you are having problem at this time of an unknown cause, I recommend that you backup and documents and/or files that you don't want to chance losing.
    ====================================
    Please follow these steps: Preliminary Virus and Malware Removal.

    NOTE: If you already have any of the scanning programs on the computer, please remove them and download the versions in these links.

    When you have finished, leave the logs for review in your next reply .
    NOTE: Logs must be pasted in the replies. Attached logs will not be reviewed.
    ==================================
    My Guidelines: please read and follow:
    • Be patient. Malware cleaning takes time. I am also working with other members while I am helping you.
    • Read my instructions carefully. If you don't understand or have a problem, ask me. Follow the order of the tasks I give you. Order is crucial in cleaning process.
    • If you have questions, or if a program doesn't work, stop and tell me about it. Don't try to get around it yourself.
    • File sharing programs should be uninstalled or disabled during the cleaning process..
    • Observe these:
      [o] Don't follow directions given to someone else
      [o] Don't use any other cleaning programs or scans while I'm helping you.
      [o] Don't use a Registry cleaner or make any changes in the Registry.
      [o] Don't download and install new programs- except those I give you.
    Threads are closed after 5 days if there is no reply.

    Thanks Bobbye for the reply!

    It seems to me that there isn't a specific dividing line between different types of sites. I have not used Site Advisor. I have 2 classes that run our homework through 2 different sites, mymathlab and mychemlab. I had some homework due last night and it took me hours to complete because the site would continually crash when moving to another problem or while looking up resources within the site. They have been the most effected I believe.


    It means that any site won't load at random times. Sometimes it won't connect to the site after numerous attempts. When sites do load, they might work for a few minutes then they will freeze and links won't work on the site, the cursor doesn't highlight the link or change to a finger. I am actually using the computer to write this reply and it has been working but I will have to refresh every few minutes.


    It is slow to load and I usually attempt connecting to sites 2-5 times.


    When I mean "glitchy" I mean any flash that is running on the sites sometimes won't load or the videos simply jump around and won't play smoothly. I play a game on facebook with some friends and the game skips and jumps around.


    Yea I know its connected to Google's Public DNS. I set that from a recommendation by a trusted friend. I mostly did it to see if it would change anything and I could get a better idea of whats happening.


    I have noticed one other strange thing, it works better at night than during the day. I almost have no problems at night. I'm in the Pacific timezone. I hope I answered your questions completely, thanks again!

    Thank you, You answered all very well. What you are describing is a typical server problem- maybe with your ISP whoever that is or for the servers that handle the math and chem. Typically, when a server isn't adequate to handle the amount of traffic coming through at that time, it will be very slow and at time, may time out completely.

    But when the traffic is less> fewer users are try to access, connecting in not a problem. This is the "Random" part.

    1.attempt connecting to sites 2-5 times.
    2.site won't load at random times.
    3.Sometimes it won't connect to the site after numerous attempts.
    4.When sites do load, they might work for a few minutes then they will freeze and links won't work on the site> the server is most likely unable to handle the traffic, so it crashes.
    ================================
    Maybe the following will help you. Email their Contact, Chat if wanted. Tell them about the problems you're having. And if they are doing constant site work, there will be times the site malfunctions:

    If the video and audio problems are on these sites, you will need to advise them of that also.
