    I am using firefox and it's all up to date, but whenever I go to sites on the net it seems to load up a load of script on the page instead of the site, does anyone know the cause of this please? it's driving me insane now.
    OK it looks like it's not just firefox but ie as well.

    Thanks in advance
    Godmonkee

    p.s. not sure if I have put this in the right place so mods please move it if I have, thanks.

    I wouldn't worry about it, I have gone and got myself a new browser, touch wood it seems to be ok.

    My firefox crashes when I open more than 5 tabs. I changed it to chrome and I am happy with it. But I still use firefox to do some things...

    Try updating your plugins, it may work for you

    Uhhhh, what? I take this to mean all websites you visit load a bunch of scripts on the page rather than the actual website is that correct? If thats the case then I'd say virus/malware.

    Yes this is correct there is no malware on the computer, I have just bought the computer yesterday, and I have virus checked it with 2 virus checkers and nothing comes back in both of them. It could be a well hidden one I suppose but there shouldn't be anything there, nevermind I am using a new browser now and it seems to be fine, ie sorted it's self out now and the safari browser that I have just got seems to be ok, we will see what happens.

    Thanks for all your help.

    Install firefox in other directory again. If not make use of Google chrome of Opera.
