When I try to access certain websites such as ebay or Facebook they either won't load or load very (very) slowly. whenever the loading process is hanging it says at the bottom of the page "include.ebaystatic.com" or "static.ak.facebook.com". I have ran multiple virus scanner, tried resetting the router, cleared my temp files, I have experimented with changing the MTU number... that doesnt seem to help. Any idea?
1. Even after performing RIES, if IE7 fails on single site
2. Uncheck 3rd party browser extension
3. Check in No Add-ons mode
4. Check whether the webpage requires any components like Java or Flash
5. Rename %windir%\system32\drivers\etc\hosts oldhosts
6. Add the website to the trusted sites
7. Enable - Accept cookies and session cookies
8. Start> Run> inetcpl.cpl
9. Choose Privacy Tab
10. Uncheck Block pop-ups & Click on Sites
11. Type the website address - eg: www.microsoft.com
12. Click on Allow & OK
13. Under Privacy Tab, click on Advanced
14. Check - Override automatic cookie handling
15. Check - Accept for 1st party cookies and 3rd party cookies
16. Check - Always allow session cookies
17. Uninstall all 3rd party pop-up blocker
18. Uncheck Windows pop-up blocker
19. Try User Agent String Utility v2
20. Educate the customer for contacting the website administrator using http://centralops.net
I've had the same problem, it started three days ago after some bogus spyware removal program installed on my computer.... but I just fixed it by doing the same thing the guy above said he did. I restarted in safe mode, and deleted some files I thought were sketchy... personally I knew these files were wrong because I have a habit of scanning my active tasks, and I found the files omoflav.dll and pwnxbdas.dll in my system 32 file and deleted them and unchecked them from my startup. this worked for me, hopefully it might help someone else.
I also used the spybot search and destroy tool, http://www.safer-networking.org/en/index.html, and found that I had a "virtumonde.dll" virus. Deleted it and now no more problems. However here's where I need some more assistance. The spybot also claimed that other dll's were infected. To be specific they were:
Everytime I startup windows it gives me an error message saying "couldn't run **.dll". I've looked online at .dll download sites and am unable to find these particular dll's. Any help would be much appreciated.
Hi! Had the same problems and it drove me mad..until I changed the TCP/IP settings in the Local connection properties. Instead of letting the system obtain DNS adress automatically, I entered 18.104.22.168 as preferred server, 22.214.171.124 as alternate. Then restarted computer and router, everything ok.
PS: when using Bitdefender 2009, you have to turn game mode on to access certain pages such as eBay..
I have been having this problem on "Waiting for static.ak.facebook...." when connecting to certain router always and I've tried re-connecting to another network's router and the problem seem to have disappeared.
Going back to trying ro fix this problem, I have tried all the above methods posted and none of above seem to work for me .....
Finally I found the solution by running flushing the DNS Server .... You can try to do this by ipconfig /flushdns ......or by ipconfig /release and ipconfig /renew ......If all this still does not bear results, you may have fixed the DNS server addressess (could have been set to "Use the following DNS Sever addressess" ) and you may need to reconfigure this by setting to obtain DNS Server address automatically from the Internet Protocol (TCP/IP) settings in your local network connection settings.... It worked for me!
I had the same issue and solved it today.
Check if you have the file dksfgepw.dll in the directory C:\windows\system32. If so, boot your computer from an alternative device like a BART PE- CD (Windows XP on CD) and delete it.
You can find also a registry entry in HKLM...run, which starts the DLL via rundll32.exe. Once started, you will not be able to remove the registry entry and you cannot delete the DLL. I think the DLL is part of a malware scanner.
can anyone tell me.. what should I be doing.. ? update Java? or what else.. it's quite saddening that Mozilla has not came up with any much updates to prevent these loading problems. anyone.. hit me back.
I had the problem loading the Facebook Homepage in Firefox (but Internet Explorer worked just fine). After trying some of the previous suggestions to no avail, I went and manually deleted the FF cookies for facebook.com.
This immediately fixed the problem, and not only that, the facebook pages loaded quicker than they ever have.
Also, please do not delete any .dll files, system32 files, or system startup processes unless you really know what you're doing. This can cause major problems. Always perform a system backup or manually save copies of system files before you try deleting them.
I've been having some pretty serious connection problems to facebook as well on Firefox and IE7 for the last few days. Probably about 50% of the time will get "The connection has timed out" or "The page cannot be displayed". No other pages I normally visit have exhibited the problem.
I've attempted several of the recommended solutions in here such as deleting everything under:
C:\Documents and Settings\[user]\Local Settings\Application Data\Mozilla\Firefox\ also running spyware tools etc, all to no avail.
I also downloaded the latest Flash and Java SE but they've had no noticeable impact. I regularly use my computer on 3 different networks (my home network and 2 separate office networks) and I still get the same problems. As far as I know, other people in my region (Sweden) are not experiencing the same problems with the frequency I am but I'll test that more next week when I have another computer to work with.
I've had no significant configuration changes on my computer either. I've not installed nor uninstalled anything recently until today with Flash and Java.
Are any other people still having this problem, because it's certainly not solved for me.
Spybot Search and Destroy worked for me also. I almost cried tears of joy because it was getting really frustrating, especially since I don't anything about complex computers issues. Now, Amazon and eBay work like they're supposed to.
maybe it is due to your connection! It happened to me once and it was because of my connection.. OR maybe it is because they temporarily blocked the access to certain areas? Due to maintenance? Maybe it is because of that..
