Problem surfing LJ




I'm not having problems surfing the web, except all LJ's including my own. The problem started last night, where I would get all these pop-ups every time I entered any LJ. Have any of you experienced the same problem? Are you unable to enter this LJ of mine? I'm really baffled by all this.

Perhaps the problem is with my computer. I'm starting to seriously suspect I've been infected with the Trojan virus, since I surf the web a lot.

I am surprised I was finally able to get to this point. Now let me see if this post will be successful. If not, I'll try a 2nd computer I have.

I'm glad you're not having the same problems with LJ as I am. One of my LJ friend's left a comment here, that she too is having the same identical problem. I'm a life member, also.

Let me see if the problem continues.

YES!!!
Yes, recently I have had this happen -- a number of times, actually.

If I don't log in immediately the first time I try (didn't type the password correctly, lost my WiFi connection, whatever), then it goes to a screen where it says something about 'you'll be able to connect after the advertisement plays' (some words like that). Then it just sits there grayed out! No ad playing and no way to connect.

I found that closing the browser, opening it again and starting over helps, though. BUT STILL!!!

They appear to have been doing a bunch of maintenance on things recently, so something must be going on...

Sorry, dearheart. I know how frustrating it can be!

(hugs)

Re: YES!!!
I'm very surprised I was able to get into LJ without any problems, but it took me a long time. The exact same thing happens with me that you mentioned. A pop-up, sometimes a bunch at the same time, come up. One of them says it's from LJ, and is asumming I'm not a user, and it wants me to click on something. If it pops up again, I'll pay more attention and write down exactly what it says. Another thing, an audio comes on. From this point, I get the GRAYED out screen you mentioned.

I went to the Yahoo search engine, and put my livejournal as a search. When I clicked to enter, nothing happened.

I have a total of 4 PAID LJ's. My Playgirl LJ is Permanant. I couldn't get into ANY of them, either.

I don't seem to have a problem right now, but I'm sure I will again!

Frustrating and scary, too! I'm sorry you're having the same problem, too. I hope some kind of solution happens, because I could never live without LJ!

Losing our Mom is one of the saddest days of our lives; one that will never be forgotten.

Those who still have their mother are truly blessed!

Sweet Pie, I send you great big hugs, too!

I don't seem to have the problem right now (lets see for how long), but this doesn't keep me from sweating it. I won't log off until tonight, because I'm afraid I won't be able to get back in. Someone here wrote she's been having the same problem.

I'm sorry you lost your mother, also. Hugs!

My LJ problems is REALLY bad all over again. I just now went into a LJ friend's journal, and when I clicked on a link he had to a reputable site on the web, I couldn't get back to LJ anymore. I tried doing an edit on this page, but it was impossible.

Something is terribly wrong! I'll start experimenting again, but I see no hope.

Have you tried different web browsers?
My main LJ here i always use Firefox and have had no problems but bakapooh and Lux have with Internet Explorer.

When I just now refreshed this page, nothing came out. I had to backspace in order to get back to this point.

I've never had problems until last night. When you mentioned Internet Explorer, I remembered that one of the MANY popups was one of Internet Explorer!!!

I haven't gotten any popups anymore today, but yesterday there was one that popped up about 15 times all at once.

Aye Pooh, let me see if I can find out more.

Do you have Anti-Virus and do you keep them up to date?

Yes I do. At the beginning of this past year I paid for AVG for 2 years, but after about 3 months, I mistakening took it off, and replaced it with the free version of avast. I have put back AVG. This is the 3rd time within a year something bad has entered my computer. I don't understand what I'm doing wrong. Perhaps it's that I totally panic, and can't think when the warning has popped out about these viruses.

I have the free version of Avast and I found it to be better than AVG. I had AVG before but I like Avast better and I trust it more. I had the free version of AVG never the paid version.

I had the free version of Avast also, when I got this virus. It isn't Avast's fault at all, but my own, since I panic and do nothing when it's tell me to do something! I sit here like a bump on a long, and freak out!

I've also gotten viruses when using my paid AVG. So, it's obvious I'm the DUH Bird!

Although, I have a 2nd computer that I don't want getting infected either, I'm seriously going to look into buying myself an extra CHEAP computer for surfing purposes only, (because this is why I've picked up viruses) because this one is my baby where I have my ENTIRE life in.

No problems at my end. Sounds like some sort of virus if you ask me.

GO TO kc.mcafee.com AND DO A SEARCH FOR KB59806, follow those instructions, if infected it will clean it out.

My Doctor Computer made a house call, and now I'm fine. I had a virus.

I've saved in Favorites the link you gave me. Thanks!
