    For the last month or so, I've had trouble with certain websites either not loading correctly or just not loading at all. I'm pretty sure it has something to do with Java, but I have no idea what's wrong or how to fix it.

    I'll use espn.go.com as an example. The main page loads fine, even though it says 'Done, but with errors.' But then I click on a link, say the NFL section, and nothing really loads except a box on the left with some text. Images don't load and neither does most of the content.

    Other sites, like rockstargames.com, don't load at all. I came across a download link to Microsoft's Virtual Machine and installed it, which seemed to do the trick for a few days. But now I'm back to square one.

    Anybody heard of this happening and how to fix it?

    Without knowing what operating system you are operating there what I would like to see you try would be to search the hosts file for invalid entries. Do a windows search for hosts. When the file shows up, open it in notepad and look for and delete any entries besides Localhost.
