They both work fine for me.



On m'a dit que je suis nul l'oral, que je n'peux pas mieux faire !

They both work fine for me two.

Try clearing your cookies and flushing the cache.


#5
Nope... that didn't work, i already tried flushing my cache and clearing my cookies. Maybe it had something to do with me installing the hosts file from PayItBackwards.com? But, i already changed back to the original hosts file. Can anyone still help?
#6
Are you crazy? You let some spammy site give you a HOSTS file? That's like giving your house keys to a burglar! Delete it pronto!

lol.. if i delete it, will it come back??? how do i restore the original hosts?
#8
1. Copy and paste this into Notepad (Minus the word "quote")
2. Save it as C:\Windows\System32\Drivers\etc\Hosts

# This is a sample HOSTS file used by Microsoft TCP/IP for Windows.
# This file contains the mappings of IP addresses to host names. Each
# entry should be kept on an individual line. The IP address should
# be placed in the first column followed by the corresponding host name.
# The IP address and the host name should be separated by at least one
# space.
# Additionally, comments (such as these) may be inserted on individual
# lines or following the machine name denoted by a '#' symbol.
# For example:
# Permit this.
127.0.0.1 localhost # designate 127.0.0.1 as the local host

Umm... i just did that i still can't load the site.. i still get the (GIF Image, 1x1 pixels) thing.

What browser are you using? I can see it in Firefox, Internet Explorer and Opera. It isn't terribly exciting, it's the SuperMediastore Coupon Codes Newsletter. The second site you say you can't get to is a "sign up to be paid for reading email ads" site.

I think you are now in Adware Hell...

Personally, I never want to go to sites like that! Now I think about it, I don't like being sent there, either. Maybe I'll ask the Mods what they think. Who knows what browser hi-jacks and weird cookies they might be dropping?

You are flirting with danger if you post that link, as I think links like that are not allowed. If you are trying to get around the rules, think again.

You come across as someone who likes going to "get rich on the Web" type sites... Too many of these sites can be bad for your computer's health. That's spelled S-C-A-M. Also spelled V-I-R-U-S and T-R-O-J-A-N.

You do seem rather keen to get people to check those sites out... makes me wonder just why?

Please, please, please, edit your original post. That very long url is making viewing this thread a pain in the @ss, because of the scroll bars that it throws up.

How do you actually know you're seeing a 1x1 GIF? How can you see it? What is the URL of this GIF?

It is clear that you are getting redirected. You may have had a browser hijack. Maybe your PC is infested with spam toolbars and adware. Sure sounds possible!

Run HijackThis which you can get here

http://www.majorgeeks.com/download.php?det=3155

If you have signed up with Payitbackwards, do you want to continue with them? I think they may have issued you with a HOSTS file so that you cannot sign up with rival get-paid-to-be-spammed outfits.

maybe you have signed up with too many get-rich-by-doing-nothing scam sites, and they are all fighting over your computer and blocking each other! A lesson here, folks...

1. Look in C:\Windows\System32\Drivers\etc for a file called HOSTS

2. Check it is the same as the one I posted.

3. If it is not, make it so.

4. Open the Run box on the start menu.

5. Type this in

ipconfig /flushdns

6. Click OK

7. Restart your computer.

Hi Anzikill!

I was looking for answers in the Google and found yours today! Yes I have the same problem. Sigh. I called HP technician yesterday. They told me to reinstall IE. It still doesn't work.

What kind of computer do you have? Mine is HP. My other computers (Dell and Apple) are working fine, no GIF image, 1x1 pixels. All same from one router. Strange

Two weeks ago my hard drive was damaged. I had a new one replaced (I have a warranty). Had it restored. Then found out that I can't load some pages...GIF Image, 1x1 pixels just like yours.

I am going to send this thread to my HP tech today. Hopefully they will solve the problem. I will get back to you. :)

Umm.. I use Dell, i think its because of what we installed on our computers..

Interesting. MY IE doesn't open up anymore. I am using Firefox now. Am still waiting to hear from HP tech. Be back.

Aznikill,

here is the reply from hp tech below. I don't have windows xp bootable cd. I am asking my friends if they have it. Hope it works out for you. Pls let me know.

Graceline

This issue occurs due to following reasons:

* Computer is booting from a non-bootable source.
* Computer hard disk drive is not properly setup in BIOS.
* Corrupt NTLDR and/or NTDETECT.COM file.
* Misconfiguration with the boot.ini file.
* Attempting to upgrade from a Windows 95, 98, or ME computer that is
using FAT32.
* New hard disk drive being added.
* Corrupt boot sector / master boot record.
* Seriously corrupted version Windows XP.
* Loose or Faulty IDE/EIDE hard disk drive cable.

There are some troubleshooting steps to resolve the issue. Please
perform the procedure below:

Step 1.

*** Reset BIOS ***

1. Restart the notebook.
2. Tap the F2 key as soon as the HP logo appears.
3. Using the arrow keys, navigate to Exit menu and select Get defaults
values.
4. Navigate to Exit menu and select Save Changes and Exit.

Step 2.

Perform the following steps to replace ntdetect.com and ntldr files
from
Windows XP OS CD.

1. Insert the Windows XP bootable CD into the CD/DVD and restart the
system.
2. When prompted to press any key to boot from the CD, press any key.
3. Once in the Windows XP setup menu press the "R" key to repair
Windows.
4. Log into your Windows installation by pressing the "1" key and
pressing enter.
5. You will then be prompted for your administrator password, just
press
enter key. (If you have changed the administrator password, then enter
that password).
6. Copy the below two files to the root directory of the primary hard
disk. In the below example we are copying these files from the CD-ROM
drive letter "D". This letter may be different on your computer.

copy d:\i386\ntldr c:\
copy ntdetect.com c:\

NOTE: The drive 'D' is your DVD/CDRW drive assumming that you have
only one partition that is 'C'. However, if you have multiple
partitions
such as C, D and E, then the drive letter of the DVD/CDRW drive may
differ.

7. Once both of these files have been successfully copied, remove the
CD
from the computer and reboot.

I would like to inform you that Windows XP OS CD was not bundled with
your notebook. You may obtain Windows XP OS CD from your relatives or
friends. I apologize for any inconvenience that may caused.
