If you're not worried about the home page, I don't quite understand what your problem is. Are you saying that some web pages come up blank? Is that the only problem?

Remember, we can't see your PC so you'll have to give a detailed explanation of what's happening so that someone can help you to sort it.

VoG. Yes some web pages come up blank,they look as tho' they are loading normally then nothing on the screen except the address bar with the name of the site on it,The more worrying thing is no system restore,I go into system tools in the accessorys menu click on system restore and nothing, all else seems to be working ok and no more freezes which is why they decided to try to cure in the first place.

Have a look for a file called C:\windows\hosts

If it exists it has no file extension (like .txt, .jpg etc)

If you find this file, rename it to hosts.old then reboot and see what happens.
