    For the last four days my websites have been acting oddly. Half of them I can get on and the other half keep coming up with Page cannot be displayed messages/ cannot find server messages.

    Some sites I can still access but have no access to msn, xanga, and a bunch of others.

    Please help.

    My friends on campus can still access these so it cant be the network

    Every time this happens to me, there is some malware that has gotten into the system.

    Run a spyware and/or antivirus scan and see what it comes up with.

    If you are unsure of which programs to use, check out some other threads in TSG. There is a heap of great sugestions in here.

    Or perhaps your security options in IE have changed. Open IE, go to tools>internet options. Check your "security" and "privacy" settings, and see if they are set above medium. (My settings, firewalls and guardians are now so touchy, they even block some images here in TSG). Then go to advanced and I suggest you click "restore defaults" to get you explorer back to original settings.

    Good luck.

    Download and install Ad-Aware SE Personal 1.05 and Spybot - Search & Destroy 1.3. Run their update function afterwards. Run a scan and delete everything that Ad-Aware finds and delete everything in red that Spybot finds.

    Download and unzip HijackThis 1.99.0 into a folder that you create for it. Run a scan, save the log in Notepad, then post the entire contents of the log here.

    You can download all 3 utilities from the spyware tools section at http://www.majorgeeks.com.

    If you don't want to post a HijackThis scanlog and don't want to download anything, the only thing I can suggest for you is to do a search for a file named hosts with NO extension (not hosts.sam).

    If you find one, just rename it ghosts

    You have what spyware stuff?

    An antivirus program is not going to find and delete spyware, malware, browser hijackers, etc.. That's what programs like AD-AWARE and SPYBOT are for.

    HIJACKTHIS allows us to see what running processes are in your computer and if any "nasties" are hiding.

    All 3 of these programs should be a "must have" in every computer.

    If you're not willing to make use of these programs, there's not much we can do for you. :(

    Are you the same person, or a different one having the same problem?

    The only one that may need renaming is the one that does not have an extension.

    The file is not used by default but can be used to associate IPs and Domain Names. Some web accelerators use it, but Hijackers do it also. When the IPs get changed you get DNS errors.

    They can be opened in Notepad for viewing if you want to check.

    A default hosts file will look like this:
    If there is anything UNDER this last entry, it is not the default.

    That is a different person.
    I still don't know how to fix mine, and I do not understand how downloading a bunch of programs will help, it is not like I cannot access any websites, it is just two simple websites that I would like to be able to access to do my banking and keep up with my friends.

    I just don't understand because nothing on my computer has changed except that right before this happened the network at school had gone down, but it is up again. Could that be the cause of my problem?

    I can't assure you that downloading anything will help. But for starters we need to know what's really there -- just like a doctor taking an Xray. Antivirus and spyware detection programs often miss things.

    One of the things they miss is alterations to the HOSTS file because that can be used for legitimate purposes and they cannot determine whehter an IP association there is valid.

    Give us a HijackThis Scanlog and let us know the urls you are having trouble with so we can verify connectivity ourselves. If you know the IPs for these addresses give us those. If you don't, try this:

    Open a command prompt (start > run: command and try entering:

    ping www.blabla.com


    where "blabla.com" is the domain you are trying to access.

    See what IP is returned from that address and try entering it directly in the address bar.

    For example if you ping www.techguy.org you will get:

    24.137.12.208

    enter that in the Address bar, and here you are.

    Did you look at your Hosts file?


    And yes, you could have configuration problems with your School network if that is what you are connecting through. You will have to contact them for help.

    Thanks for finally posting a HijackThis log. (y)

    ----------------------------------------------------------------

    As I suspected, your computer has too many unnecessary programs loading during startup and running in the background. This will cause a longer startup time, drain system resources, sap performance, and increase the risk of error messages and freezes. (n)

    ----------------------------------------------------------------

    Before we work on reducing the startup load, however, let's have someone more knowledgeable than me with Hijackthis logs assist you in fixing it and getting rid of any "nasties".

    There are some entries though that I see that you can fix. Run another scan with HijackThis, place a checkmark in the following, then click "Fix Checked":

    O2 - BHO: (no name) - {549B5CA7-4A86-11D7-A4DF-000874180BB3} - (no file)

    O2 - BHO: (no name) - {FDD3B846-8D59-4ffb-8758-209B6AD74ACC} - (no file)


    ----------------------------------------------------------------

    Have you installed and updated and run a scan yet with AD-AWARE and SPYBOT? I see Wild Tangent among the startup list, and SPYBOT would've found that one.

    HijackThis should be moved to a permanent folder before it is used to do anything. That way backups can be reliably restored if necessary.

    I see no malware in the log that should be an issue.

    One legitimate program that from time to time is responsible for blocking access is Norton Internet Security. I would recommend disabling it for a test.

    You can also configure it, I believe, to ensure the domains involved are not blocked.

    http://service1.symantec.com/SUPPOR...85256ede00518dfb?OpenDocument&src=bar_sch_nam

    I can't get to xanga by way of the IP addresses either. However www.xanga.com does work for me.

    Also I can connect to members1st.org using:

    http://64.9.49.132/

    or

    http://www.members1st.org/

    Sometimes these issues resolve themselves after a few days due to ISPs caching of domains needing to be updated when they are changed.

    Ok, thank you all for all the help that you have been, I guess it might just be the network because I am still not able to access these sites, although all the other comps on campus can access them. Who knows. But thanks for your help all the more.

    God Bless and God Speed,
    Dani
