Hi All,
Im currently running Vista 32bit on an Core 2 Duo PC. The other day, after installing and uninstalling my anti-virus software to update and change i noticed some of my web pages were refusing to load. Sometimes if i closed the browser 3 or 4 times it would work, other times it would work for a little while and then suddenly stop halfway into doing something.

Google will load, but won't load any searches, facebook and any other sites i regularly use wont load at all it just hangs and says its searching. Firefox and IE both do the same thing, the other laptop on my network which im on right now has no issues at all. Really need some help as this is frustrating the hell out of me! Any advice appreciated, thanks guys..

Also worth noting, in safe mode i can load any pages whatsoever with no problem! This is a log from Hijack this i did just before

Not sure if you have repaired your problem yet but, I had a similar problem that I worked on for 2 days. I download files off the internet like crazy and suddenly I couldn't get past my google homepage. I could look at all the pages in google likeimages, video, mail... but could not search or login to anything. AVG virus scan picks up nothing, Uniblue scans pick up nothing. So... I went to start/run/type msconfig. I looked in my startup items which I normally keep completely clear because of gaming and I found a file that was odd. The file on startup was mclwddjh.dll. This is an odd filename because it should not exist and especially in a startup location. I did a web search for this file and found nothing. Not even in the uniblue .dll file extensions search. So... I knew it shouldn't exist. I couldn't delete the file because it was in use and everytime I tried disabling it on startup, it would turn back on. So... I went into C:windows/system32/ and found the mclwddjh.dll and renamed it with some numbers before and after like 0000mclwddjh1234.dll just to confuse the program. Restarted my computer and got a error that mclwddjh.dll could not be found. YAY! I was then able to remove the file from startup under msconfig and delete the file completely. The internet works perfectly now and no other issues are to be found.

So, if you see any odd named files in msconfig startup and they wont disable because all should... then follow my steps of searching for the extension to see if its good or bad... or exists at all. Then rename, restart, and delete that poop. Hope this helps you.
