Loading websites

  1. Hello!
    I have posted a thread before but the problem came back a day after.
    I can't load facebook, and realized I also can't load humble bundle now, two websites I use.
    It gives me the message of "check your proxy" "check your internet connection" and etc etc.
    On Humble Bundle it loads the background of the page but not the rest of it

    I tried those:
    1. Use from other browsers(Firefox, Internet Explorer, Edge, Chrome).
    2. Try from different devices on the same network, it works, only my pc doesn't work.
    3. Disable firewalls, anti viruses - none helped I even scanned the pc for viruses and uninstalled the anti virus.
    4. Receive different IP from the router
    5. Nothing is set in the router (No DMZ, ports and etc)
    6. Tried to do the netsh command.
    7. I get a reply from the websites in the ping command.
    8. Tried https:// and http://
    9. Updated Flash and Java (This solved the problem for a little while before it came back, but it is now updaded)

    I am really out of ideas at this point and no one knows how to solve it, I need some help! It may happen with other websites too that I may need in the future.

    "Updated Flash and Java (This solved the problem for a little while before it came back, but it is now updaded)"

    I do not use either Flash or Java, but as you seem to be comfortable with the risk, perhaps you just need to update again. Apparently, there are several recent major security updates in the current versions. Sometimes, the older version needs to be removed. Sometimes a specific browser is required (I.e., https://www.java.com/en/download/installed.jsp ).

    I would not recommend disabling your anti-malware. You might wish to run searches on "do I need Java?" and "do I need Flash?"

    It's rare that a proxy is needed at all and if you did not install/configure it, it CAN be a source of all kinds of nasties; eg
    identity theft, spying, and website access manipulation.

    I have no proxy on and did updated Flash and Java again
    Is there a way to delete Java and Flash and reinstall it? Would it help?

    All the info is in that post; use the Command Prompt and insert the commands listed - - I can't say more than that.
