Hmm ,well i would still like to get to the bottom of why after several years of being a happy loyal firefox user i am forced to switch browsers, and also if we can solve it with a fix then that will help future members with similar issue possibly.
im also not happy that to use my yahoo mail account successfully i have to switch to mail classic in order for it to function in chrome.

I usually use FF - 3.6.13 - although my default is IE8. I tried to open Google in IE earlier and the bar across the top said that it had blocked "cross-site scripting" - this is the result:

Akamai NetSessions Removal:

The simplest and preferred method of removing NetSession interface is to use the Add or Remove Programs application.
1. In the Windows Control Panel, run Add or Remove Programs.
2. Select Akamai NetSession Interface
3. Click Change/Remove, then click Yes to confirm your choice.

Clients using Firefox:
Make sure they don't have the add-on FoxTorrent, which uses the RedSwoosh P2P client.

Remove the RedSwoosh EDN Client manually:

Also, flush your DNS cache:

Open an elevated command prompt (run as Administrator)
enter ipconfig /flushdns press 'enter'

right i got rid of the akami netsession interface and flushed the cache ,i can't find any instances of redswoosh
at all , i certainly wouldnt have installed it ,we use bittorrent
and google is still playing up, i will try a reebot now i have flushed. brb
edit :so far so good i was able to click next in google and not have it freeze ,im wary of celebrating yet as i got bitten before ,i did it for 25 pages and went back 25 pages ,which was impossible before,however a big thank you jaycee for your input and taking the time to peruse my vew report. will keep you informed of progress, thanks again
