connection to the server reset

  logix 09:21 09 Mar 2007

i have started gettin 2 errors the first is (the connection to the server was reset while the page was loading.
The second is i get popups, even though i use the firefox popup blocker thats built into the browser.
i have recently upgraded my broadband speed from 1mb to 8mb. could this be a problem or have i just got a virus or some kind of spyware.
could someone shed some light.

I would up-date and run your Anti-Virus+Spyware programs,Looks like you have picked up a nastie from somewhere.

I also get this "the connection to the server was reset" happening especially in peak times.

Unless it happens ALL the time then don't worry about it.

Try the "No script" Add ON for firefox - Tools - Add Ons - get extensions.

If you have changed to an 'up to 8mb', that is rate adaptive and takes a couple of weeks to settle down. Mine had frequent disconnects at first, but happens on occasionally now.

That helps with your network connection,But you should not be getting the pop-ups,I would still run your security programs to be in the safe side,Cant be to carefull out there.
