Macromedia Not Displaying on webpages

OS: XP SP2
Browser: IE6
CPU: 3.4G P4
RAM: 512
For a couple of months now, I've noticed that some sections of webpages are not displaying. For expample: 1) www.msn.com, the Ad in the upper right-hand corner above the ''Spotlight'' box is blank and just says ''ad feedback''. 2) For the second type of message that I get, go to the Money section of MSN. The image below the ''Symbol & Get Quote'' and above the ''Market Update'' section just has the message:

''The page cannot be displayed''

"The page you are looking for is currently unavailable. The Web site might be experiencing technical difficulties, or you may need to adjust your browser settings.''

This happens at other sites besides MSN. And I wouldn't be concerned except that it also seems to hang up the ''Forward/Back'' functions and is getting to be a pain. I've tried changing my browser settings and disabling ZoneAlarm, SpySweeper, & AVG without success. I've also manually un-installed and re-installed Macromedia 7. It seems like this started when I upgraded from Macromedia 6, but I'm not sure. Any Ideas, Thanks

This seems to be a hosts issue.

That's it. Thank you so much. This has been driving me nuts. Looking in the Hosts file, I found that Spysweeper was involved in blocking the sites. Now I can fine tune it.

Again, Thanks, thanks, thanks, Steve

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
