Question WEB PAGE Expired?
When I click on a link on some web pages I get a page that says "web page expired" "check internet settings". This is starting to drive me crazy because it keeps effecting more and more web sites that I visit so now I can't seem to get anywhere. Please tell me how to fix this, as I am getting increasingly frustrated and I'm going bald from pulling my hair out!

Thanks so much!
Sincerely,

LI5A6

Sounds like your browser may have been hijacked. I would run anti spy-ware if I was you, it can be found on the security forum as a sticky.

Also empty all you internet temp files and delete your cookies, maybe run your anti virus software as well.


good luck

HIJACK THIS:

Download and copy hijackthis to its own folder , it makes backups so keeping them separate and available can be useful.

Note the Spyware tools websites are very often under attack and so I have provided more than 1 location to download from:

http://www.tomcoyote.org/hjt/
http://209.133.47.200/~merijn/downloads.html
http://www.thespykiller.co.uk/
http://www.sherrylynn.us/privacypolicy

Close all open windows and open Hijack This. Click “Scan”. When the scan is finished (it only takes a second), the scan button will change to “Save Log”.
Click on “Save Log” and then save it to NotePad.
Click on “Edit” – “Select all” – “copy” and then “paste” into the thread.
DO NOT FIX ANYTHING wait advice from one of the many security experts in this forum.
I currently do not have the skill/competence to advise and poor advice can be far more damaging to your PC with this software.

Please have patience and wait for an expert to provide further detailed advice

the HiJack This thing didn't work
I downloaded the HiJack This file from one of the links provided, but when I try to open it, click on it, Run it etc...nothing. It flashes quickly on the screen, but nothing opens up.

Now what?

Do you have Winzip or a program similar installed on the computer?

OK now
Well, everything seems to be OK now. I never could open the HiJack This file, but what solved my problem was upgrading Internet Explorer. Once I downloaded the upgrade and then restarted my computer I didn't have that problem anymore. Thanks much for the suggestions.

Sincerely,
