Misc Web Pages Timeout

2453 Views 13 Replies 3 Participants Last post by  stevemart
I am running Windows XP on a Sony and have a wireless router. My desktop PC which connects by ethernet into the router is having problems. I have two laptops which are fine. I have even connected one of the laptops by ethernet into the router, to make sure that it was not a problem with it, and it could connect to everything fine.

What happens is that misc webpages will not load. They timeout, usually with the error message "Page cannot be displayed…cannot find server or dns error". Some of the websites include 1) hotmail 2) yahoo->inbox link 3) certain buttons on itunes and apple 4) certain buttons on bellsouth's webpage. Also I can no longer access windows update; when I try to find out what updates are available it gives the error code "0x80072EE2".

I have tried the following in this order:
1) Ran through the troubleshooting on the windows web site, which included shutting off firewalls (Norton and Windows), flushing dns, adding windows update to trusted sites list, and checking the hosts file. Same problem
2) Compared internet settings of desktop to the XP laptop, and are the same. (Also tried running with Netscape and same error occurs)
3) Installed and ran Spybot. Found three, removed. Same problem
4) Installed and ran Adware. Found two, removed. Same problem
5) Got frustrated, and since I have only had the computer a year with not much on it, I used the Sony recovery to (supposedly) set the drive back to it's original configuration.

Now I have a computer that still will not access the internet correctly, and I am going to have to reinstall all of my software.

Please help. I am at work right now, but I will try all suggestions when I get home at 5.

I am having this same problem on my Dell running Win XP, My compaq running Win2000, and my wireless connected Mac running whatever. This has got to be either a new bug, or something. I, too, have tried all the different Anti-virus products, including the beta Microsoft Anti-virus, which did pick up something tha others did not. But, I still can not logon to E-bay, Open Hotmail, read Yahoo mail. It's odd, I can get to the yahoo mail list, open the inbox, but not open the mails. We need an expert!

Being a relative novie to the HJT Files, I , too, would choose to "fix" the above two listed BHO's. Other than these two, everything else seems okay. Maybe someone else will see something different. I'm still wrestling with my system. I'm going to Sophos to see if I can download their cleaner. I'll let you know if I get anywhere. Oh, I did try SpyFerret which found instances of Bonzi Buddy, and intersysinc. in my registry keys. But, I had to remove them manually, and it didn't make a difference. Back to the drawing board.
Here's my thread, trying to solve similar problem.
"online email won't open, ebay can't open."
Problem solved! It was my DI-514, D-Link Router. All three computers were running through it. I unplugged the router, logged on to the Internet with IE, and was able to successfully logon and read my Ebay, Yahoo, and Hotmail. Maybe this will help someone else!
