Screen Locks Up & wont let me do anything until about 700,000,. bytes or more are passed into my Comp?
Posted on 2003-03-31
This just started to happen to me about 7 months ago!. I thought it was just a secure thing that the sites
started to impose on visitors? However I am not so sure now!. Here is the problem:
When ever I go to my Wells Fargo site to review my Account Status, And before I am able to put in my
SSN and Password, The page FREEZES!, Can't Stop it or back out of the page, and between 30,000 and
80,000 Bytes of info is sent and between
700,000 and 1,300,000 are received?. Now this just started to happen when I am selling an Item on Ebay,
And I have contacted the Ebay support people and they said to dump my Ebay Cookies!, Which I did!, And
it continues to happen?. Well I have downloaded "PEST PATROL" and "AD-AWARE" and Updated both and ran them,
and this problem still persists!. Am I just being Paranoid, or does anyone think I am justified in my
worrying?. I am Not a Computer person! I am just an Old retired GI who uses the internet (Ebay) to make
up the difference between my retired pay and the real world costs, and to me this could be real Trouble!
Any assistance would be Greatly appreciated. EdReno.
I Have a Gateway That has a Pentium 3 Processer, and it uses Windows 98 5.50. and it also has the Secure package. I have this problem with other
sites also! Saturday while doing my Ebay thing, and this started to happen, It was interupted with the Expired Certificate warning? And I queried the box and it gave me these address: Adfarm.mediaplex.com . Now how could they have a Certificate on my machine? And where is it? Thanks folks, I need the help. Just remember when responding to this Plea for help, You are talking to the Village Idiots Closest living relative where computers are concerned.
