    Firefox, IE8, Chrome - Not responding

    Browsers work normally on most sites but when I try to access Facebook or Youtube the browsers lock up. This happens with all of the above on these sites. As other sites appear to connect normally I have no idea what the cause is. I have run security scans and malware scans - all clear.

    Browsers not responding

    I use ccCleaner after every browser session so cache should be cleared. Browsers only show "not responding" on Facebook and Youtube (so far).

    Is it your ISP that supplies your DNS client ? If so I suggest changing to OpenDNS

    Browsers now OK. Problem seemed to be DivX which I installed recently. Program showed no conflicts but obviously there was. Uninstalled this and all is now as normal.
