Can't view anything on aol

  DMAN 09:23 21 Jul 06


Really weird problem. I can connect to aol (broadband gold) but cannot view any pages as it just says action cancelled. Although when using firefox I can view the websites. I also cannot access my firewall
as it starts up but freezss.

Any ideas would be appreciated.

Is the problem just when using the AOL browser? And which firewall?

  DMAN 09:33 21 Jul 06

yeah just with aol browser. The firewall is MCafee

OK, if this has just started, it could be a virus or other malware. Check and run your defences. I believe AOL has their own these days. Can you contact them online via Firfox?

yeah I've run my ad programs and nothing found. I will do a virus scan to see.

Don't trust MCafee, it may have been compromised. Download, instal and update, and run AVG click here

ALl sorted. I uninstalled McAfee and everthing seems to be fine. Did a virus scan also. Could anyone recommend a free firewall. Thanks for help Graham!

XP has it's own firewall, in Control Panel.

From McAfee I went to ZoneAlarm. Its free and very good.
