I have lots of ideas, can you tell us anything about your computer, your connection or anything that can help us tell you what could be wrong
My computer is an HP running Windows XP2. I connect to the internet by a dial-up connection. The last session I had on this computer I believe I updated the paid AVG that is installed before I shut down. I don't know if this means anything. If you have any other questions that may help you determine the problem, please let me know!!!
It sounds like you may have picked up a virus not detected by AVG and that is stopping you getting a page to download. Try starting your PC in safe mode with networking and then search google for the site of some online anti virus checks and run 1 or more of them. You could also try some anti-mallware programs
