    Many web pages suddenly no longer load
    « on: February 08, 2015, 06:17:04 PM »
    Well, my problem seems a bit broad, and I can't entirely point out what may have caused it, so I'll give you a run down of how it came about, then tag on some computer spec type stuff. With a large dose of luck, maybe I can get this straightened out.

    Short Summary:
    I was trying to get a game server up an running, spent hours on it, never got it to work, gave up, and now many websites I frequent will not load.

    Long Summary:
    So I was trying to set up a server for Minecraft on my PC, to play with my friends, and for all I could tell it should have been working. I tried lots of things, all sorts of forums and help websites, changed things they said to in my router, my computer, the game, lot's of changes, but the best I ever got was to be able to get people on it locally, and yes I port forwarded the heck out of all the things! BUT THAT ISN'T THE PROBLEM I POSE HERE.

    The problem then arrouse when I gave up, and noticed that many webpages would not load any more. Most annoyingly my email at comcast, not comcast.net itself mind you, only my inbox. Other things like all of IGN.com doesn't work, or just the videos of GameTrailers.com. In fact the only videos that seem to work at all are Youtube videos, so I can't watch my DVR. (I don't mean to sound like I'm whining, simply trying to get all the helpful symptoms out there).

    At one point in my troubleshooting for the server I had my firewall down, to see if that was the problem (it wasn't), and I fear I let something in that shouldn't be there, like a virus or something. Thing is, I've done everything I normally do to handle viruses: Loaded a restore point from before I began messing with things, ran my 'Advanced SystemCare' virus protection thing (it found nothing), and removed any recent programs I didn't recall from the programs list (Of which there weren't really any, just Minecraft). If it is a virus of sorts, I don't know what kind of program I'll need since I don't know what kind of virus it is, if that even makes sense.

    The web problem persists though, I'm surprised the system restore didn't fix it. So then I figured it must be something I changed in the router(s). So I removed the port forwards and tried to recall anything else I might have changed, still bad. Not to mention, all other computers and devices in the house seem unaffected.

    So at this point I'm at a loss and need a miracle or some heavy direction...

    System Stuff:
    It's an HP Pavilion Elite HPE-240f PC

    haven't changed a thing since I got it, so it's still an
    i5-650 core
    8 GB RAM
    Windows 7 64 bit

    It's connected to a wired Linksys router, which is connected to a LAN wireless adapter hub, with the other hub on the opposite side of the house, which connected to a wireless belkin router (which is also connected to my computer, it's the two together that make a usable connection for me) Which is then connected to our modem/router (we don't use the router features of the modem because they suck.)
    So it's a terrible set up I know, and will change eventually, but previously it had worked wonderfully, and still does for 40% of websites, lightning fast.

    Closing:
    I imagine you guys will ask me things as you try to help, I'll update this post to keep the data consolidated, and just reply to let you know I've done so. yeah?

    One test I would do is to see if its profile related. To test this you create an alternate account on the same pc. Then logon to that account and see if the problems are also with this other account or if the problems go away. If the problems go away then its a profile specific browser setting that needs adjustment etc. If the problem remains then we will dig deeper into changes of the system or router that would affect all users.

      Unless I'm missing it, it seems I can't update my original post as I said I would, oh well there.
      Anyway, I gave it a test per your suggestion, and the result is: Yes, the issue persists for all Users, including those freshly created.

      'Advanced SystemCare' virus protection
      I think you should remove this all in one protection software as it is not recommended. Secondly, while waiting for Dave, check for any related internet VPN connection/Hamachi softwares installed by Add or Remove Programs or device manager and then try uninstalling.

      I will move this thread to the malware forum and run some scans to make sure the computer is clean and we'll take it from there.

      Hello and welcome to Computer Hope Forum. My name is Dave. I will be helping you out with your particular problem on your computer.

      1. I will be working on your Malware issues. This may or may not solve other issues you have with your machine.
      2. The fixes are specific to your problem and should only be used for this issue on this machine.
      3. If you don't know or understand something, please don't hesitate to ask.
      4. Please DO NOT run any other tools or scans while I am helping you.
      5. It is important that you reply to this thread. Do not start a new topic.
      6. Your security programs may give warnings for some of the tools I will ask you to use. Be assured, any links I give are safe.
      7. Absence of symptoms does not mean that everything is clear.

      If you can't access the internet with your infected computer you will have to download and transfer any programs to the computer you're using now and transfer them to the infected computer with a CD-RW or a USB storage device. I prefer a CD because a storage device can get infected. If you use a storage device hold the shift key down while inserting the USB storage device for about 10 secs. You will also have to transfer the logs you receive back to the good computer using the same method until we can get the computer back on-line.

        If the second one ever decides to download, I'll reply with that as well. The last one probably isn't supposed to do that... anyway, it's Windows 7. After the other, the issue persists.

          Dang, it won't download in safe mode either (and the issue persists).

          I'll have to bring one of my USB drives into work tomorrow and download it to that, then bring it home tomorrow evening.  :-\

              For Chrome and Firefox, it's another thing that refuses to download. Luckily my sister is around with her laptop, so I downloaded it to hers and moved it to mine, then the problem was that when I ran the installer, it tried to download more stuff... which it refused to do.
              So I tried Internet Explorer to skip having to do the download, but after accepting the terms and conditions I get a blank pop up window, I've attached an image of it.

              There are different procedures for anyone not using IE. Did you notice that?
