I have a Dell Latitude D400 running Windows XP Professional service pack 2. Recently, I reformatted my laptop due to some problems it was having. A while after that, I noticed that some sites would not load. I would not get an error message, such as "page not found". It would just keep loading, but the screen would stay blank. Only a few sites will actually load. Youtube, Surfthechannel, this forum, the homepage of another forum I'm on, wikipedia, photobucket. Searches on Google won't come up, yahoo doesn't come up, logging into photobucket won't send me to my photo albums. Facebook doesn't come up, nor does myspace. The actual forums, not the home page, won't come up. CtrlAltDel-Online won't come up. Various sites simply will not load. What's confusing me is that I never get an error message in Firefox, IE, or Opera(I downloaded Opera because I thought it had something to do with Firefox). I've scanned my computer with Kaspersky Lab multiple times, and I have removed everything that had come up on those scans. If I don't fix this, I won't be able to check my email on my laptop, do searches on google and yahoo(which I need to do for a mental health project. Researching theories proposed by Carl Jung, and explain wether or not they were accepted by the medical/scientific community).
