I'm having weird problems about failing to browse some two or three specific sites. Most of them are showing time-out errors.Where should I fix it?

Which 2 or 3 specific sites (if you're willing to share;))? Which scripting language is being used, Java, ActiveX, or other?

It's likely a scripting or proxy error of some sort.

"Are you behind a proxy server (i.e. at work or school?) Do you have a firewall installed?"
I have a proxy for Internet Explorer 6.0 and I'm using zonealarm,hackerproof.
For example,for one website,I tried searching with the normal address from google but a page came saying that possibly my proxy couldn't
cache their dns properly so plz redirect my browser to index.php,I did,got the same error.
I'm having this problem randomly but annoyingly.Somedays ago It was with only
microsoft sites now it's with random sites...i'm paranoid.
then there's this .org site that I can't get to anyway always it's showing the xp loading image stopped right in the middle.So,after about 3 minutes the browser then redirects to autosearch.msn.com for some reason though the add is right.

The Portland site uses a custom scripting language. Microsoft sites use ActiveX, of course. Have you tried running a spyware tool?

It's also possible that your Security setting have been dinked with.

Finally, you can also download the Sun Java Engine. The Microsoft Java Virtual Machine is crappy and broken by design. Download the runtime package for Java language support. Windows installation is mid-page (scroll down): http://java.sun.com/j2se/1.4.2/download.html

...and, like the Big B A, I must recommend Mozilla for general use: http://www.Mozilla.org. It's inherently much more secure and flexible than IE, which is an unfixable mess in its present form (By MS's own documented admission).

Not only do I suggest using regular mozillia but I have been using the FIREBIRD and its quick. All the cookies and blah blah...crap you want to get rid of in IE(5 steps) is built in to 1 button with FIREBIRD browser.
