Internet Problems
 
I have a problem that I think NYSkins fan was/still having/has. I cannot get to certains sites, the big one is [url=http://www.yahoo.com]Yahoo![/url] . For some reason I cannot get onto that site with Firefox or Explorer. I cleared my cache and all that good stuff. Do I have a virus or something?

It sucks because I cant check my FF at home. The wierd thing is when I was home during break, I could get online at home with the wireless router there, but now back at school I cant get on yahoo, findago.com/series and other sites that I really want to get on.

Anyone here that can help me out?

damn you have a lot of problems!!!

don't we all........

but findago is probably an illegal site b/c it brakes rules about copyright. not that i care that your on it or anything, but you may have gotten a virus from that. try deleting your cookies, no joke.

i really don't know what that does but it works when ever my internet doesn't work.

you probably shouldn't do what i said about the cookies b/c i have absoulutly no ideer what i'm talking abot

Go and download free versions of ad-ware and spy-ware scans. They will scan your system for problems and you can clear them. I will get a link or 2 when I find them. I have 2 scanning programs and they help tremendiously. Also, if you right click on your explorer icon and click on properties, you can clear your temporary internet files or cookies by selecting "delete cookies" this may help your explorer run better.

I suggested this to NY_Skinsfan and it might work for you. Check out the file called "hosts" in C:\Windows\System32\drivers\etc and open it in Notepad

Make sure that Yahoo isn't on there or anything else. Do you have a third party firewall program?

First, make sure you're not having dns problems...

start->run
type cmd and hit OK
...black box pops up...
type nslookup yahoo.com
hit enter

If DNS is working correctly, should see something like...
Name: yahoo.com
Addresses: 216.109.112.135, 66.94.234.13

If you don't get these results, then you (read ISP) most likely have a DNS problem. If you do get these results, then it could be spyware, firewall problems, etc etc etc

Did you try dipping your balls in exotic oils, a la AMD?

That always works for me ;)

Non-authoritative answer:

This is what it says. I think it basically what it should say. Thanks for the help though.

And TMC I tried what you told me and the file labeled "HOSTS" was completely empty.

Re: Internet Problems
 
I'm not sure that we have/had the same problem. The fact that you can get an IP address suggests that it is not a dns problem as cpayne suggested. I couldn't even get that far. You can try ipconfig /flushdns from the cmd window. If not, onlydarksets suggested [url=http://www.opendns.com/start/]OpenDNS > Get Started[/url]. That is what did it for me. Also, there are other domain names that you can try but I think you should go to Matty for those.
