  1. Any Internet engine wont let me go to certain sites it just takes forever and won't load. Myspace is a example. Also I keep seeing xx.ads.xxx in the status bar and I have to click 3 times to go back.

    A consideration: your security is protecting you. It could be the phishing filter in IE7 or could be a setting in one of your security programs. Obviously the 'ads' are going to be third party Cookies. IF you have a Block instead of Prompt on third party Cookies, this can happen.

    Control Panel> Internet Options> Privacy tab> Advanced button> place the Third Party Cookie setting to Prompt if it is set to Block> OK> Apply> OK.
