Slow & non-loading sites

  daveac41 16:27 13 Jul 2007

I use both IE7 and Firefox. Often, when I click on often-used bookmarks, I get a message saying that the site "could not be found.Please check the name and try again". I re-click , and the site opens sometimes, but not always. I suspect some sort of malware is present. I have Zone Alarm and Ad-Aware. I've tried others but the problem remains.
I run XP Pro SP2.

Can anyone help, please?

More info required; version of Windows, ISP, broadband/dialup, modem or router, any antivirus and internet security software.

Normally my message is,Timed out,Happens with Firefox or IE7.And mostly on PCA.I am also with Virgin,So that may be the common fault.

click here .Hi it's been bad to-day on both.Had problems With PCA before they fixed it.Looks like the same sort of problems.But no-body else complaining ,So probably something to do with Virgin.

Sorry ignore that click here .It was just the same problem but different wording just like yours on IE7.
