    I am having a problem getting my web pages to finish loading. What is happening is that the page will load and says DONE however the page seems dead or frozen for 5-15 seconds before I am able to scroll the page or click on other links on the page (the progress bar also freezes showing a full download but will not go away). My computer is not frozen as I can go to another browser page that is already open and have no problem or I can go to my mail box and work there, just that one page is frozen.

    I am on DSL, using the most current version of IE, Windows XP and have been running the same setup for sometime with no problems. This problem just started out of the blue a few days ago. I have also run Spy Ware programs, emptied cache and cookies, ect but nothing seems to be fixing the problem.

    Update or install Java for windows as Microsoft no longer is allowed to bundle it with the latest XP or IE browser. You probably opening a page with mouse-over nav buttons.

    Thanks Mike & Charlie...I will try that however since my IE and XP have been installed for about a year with no problems I doubt if that is the issue since this problem has only just started in that last few days.

    Thanks SandraR...I realize it is my computer as the problem is on any web page I try to open and not restricted to my website.

    Bill,

    Sorry, disregard my message. I see you already did all that.

    I did not read the entire message.

    I believe you can run Internet Explorer repair - maybe that will fix the problem.

    Make sure these butt holes who are the network darlings didn't do a drive-by install on your even with Active-X set to prompt. Seems some advertiser at ABCnews ( Disney/GO network site) did 3 on me today by defeating the Active-X prompt trying n-Case -StopPop -MSview. Screw the Ad Whores at Disney as I reported it to the FTC.

    nCase (also spelled nCASE or n-CASE, randomly) is adware from 180Solutions. It consists of a process, msbb.exe, that runs constantly with Windows and shows advertising.

    nCase is aware of the FlashTrack parasite and will disable it if it is running, to stop it showing competing adverts. Some versions also seem to connect to the Gator web servers occasionally, for unknown reasons.

    Variants
    nCase/msbb is the core executable.

    nCase/Inst is an ActiveX drive-by installer control that loads nCase/msbb. This has been seen since around March 2003.

    nCase/Alert is a randomly-named executable run at start up that checks that for nCase being removed. It then offers to reinstall the main program, or remove itself (this option does work, rather better than the 'official' uninstall in fact).

    Distribution
    Bundled with a large range of applications, particularly file-sharing programs. nCase are known to send e-mail to software authors asking them to include the nCase bundle.

    Also installed by ActiveX drive-by downloads in adverts inserted on some free web hosting services, and bundled with programs installed by ActiveX drive-by download in adverts (eg. an 'Error Patch' application that does nothing other than load n-Case).

    Also installed by the FavoriteMan and BookedSpace parasites.

    What it does
    Advertising
    Yes. Looks for known URLs and keywords in URLs, and opens pop-up advertisements targeted at such sites. Also opens non-targeted pop-up adverts at arbitrary times during IE usage. Can add shortcut icons to the Start menu and Desktop if directed to by its controlling servers.

    Privacy violation
    Yes. The URL or keyword is passed with a unique identifier to nCase's controlling server bis.180solutions.com when a targeted advert is shown, allowing web usage to be tracked across sites.

    Newer versions of the software also seem to try to read an e-mail address, real name and ZIP code to associate with the unique identifier, from applications' data in the registry:

    Outlook Express mail accounts
    Outlook user info
    AOL Instant Messenger accounts
    Windows location
    RealPlayer location
    Windows Fax headers
    eFax.com headers
    Acrobat user info
    Netscape user info
    MS Comic Chat registration
    GameSpy registration
    NetFerret registration
    Security issues
    Yes. nCase can download and execute arbitrary unsigned code from its controlling servers, as an update feature.

    Stability problems
    May cause an error message such as "msbb.exe file is linked to the missing export wininet.dll" on older systems without a WinInet library. Can also cause IE to be a bit slow to start up, and some versions are reported to generate page fault errors.

    Removal
    There is an uninstall feature for nCase, but it is a bit of a bad joke. You have to go to Add/Remove Programs in the Control Panel, choose 'Insterstitial ad delivery by n-Case', click 'Remove', confirm you are connected to the internet and download the uninstaller EXE. (This only works if Active Scripting in Internet Explorer is set to 'Enable', not 'Disable' or 'Prompt'.)

    Run the uninstaller (which will again ask for internet access) and then do the whole lot over again for the entry 'PAD lookups by n-Case'. And it still sometimes doesn't work, for unknown reasons.

    To add injury to insult, this method does not remove the installer control, so if you had the nCase/Inst variant, any web page will be able to re-install nCase without any prompting.

    You may find it easier to remove by hand.

    Manual removal
    Open the registry (click 'Start', choose 'Run' and enter 'regedit'), find the key HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run, right-click the entry 'msbb' inside it, and click 'Delete'.

    To delete nCase/Alert, also check for a randomly-named entry three or more letters long, pointing to a .EXE of the same name in the Windows folder. Delete this entry and the file it points to. Alternatively, wait for the next restart and it should prompt to you reinstall or remove itself.

    Restart the computer and you should be able to delete the 'nCase' folder inside Program Files. In older versions without an 'nCase' folder, look in the System folder (inside the Windows folder; called 'System32' under Windows NT, 2000 and XP, or just 'System' on Windows 95, 98 and Me), and delete msbb.exe.

    To clean up, you can also delete the registry keys HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Uninstall\nCASE, HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Uninstall\msbb and HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\180solutions.

    To delete nCase/Inst, if you have the nCase/Inst variant, open the Downloaded Program Files folder inside the Windows folder, right-click the 'nCaseInstaller Class' entry and choose 'Remove'.
