Hi all--I'm having trouble with my home computer when I try to go to Hubpages--it looks enlarged with big icons and a strange format with only b&w. I can sign on but not really view content well. This has happened off and on for several months but now it has been permanent for over 2 weeks. On my work computer everything is fine. I'm not seeing anyone else talking about this, so I assume it is a problem with my computer which seems to work fine on all other websites. Any ideas of how I can fix this? I've deleted cookies and turned off my ad blocker and a lot of other apps. I've tried Firefox and also Chrome. Any ideas? (I'm not a new hubber--I've been active on the site for 8 years or so)
Do you have McAfee? If so, see if you can add HubPages to a whitelist or something. I don't have it so I can't be specific about what you need to do.
I do have McAfee--I'll try that. Thanks!
I had McAfee but removed it from my computer. It was responsible but I did not know about the possibility of adding McAfee to a 'white paper'! If you discover how to do this and it fixes your problem, would you mind enlarging on how I could too please as I am not very happy about using the free AVG program?
A quick Google search found this:
https://download.mcafee.com/products/we … 9B7A3.html
That's quite old, but there are other resources - just search McAfee website whitelist.
That is the low-bandwidth/plain text version fo the site. Other people have found McAfee was responsive for switching you to it.
Might be a browser zoom issue. Try Ctrl+0 (zero) to reset to default.
Thank you. I will wait to see if it works for anyone else as I have already had a refund from McAfee.

I just checked on one of my hubs because it seemed to be getting more traffic than usual, and there was a warning sitting at the top which told me that it appeared that I was getting traffic from a traffic exchange. When I checked out the URL where most of the traffic is coming from it does appear...

Have any of you noticed as I have that your articles are carrying orange tick warning signs instead of green ones when you use Chrome saying that the articles you have written are potentially risky pages to visit? I have asked the team for an explanation but am curious to know whether you are...

Hubpages folks-On almost a daily basis when accessing a hub or trying to access the website I either get blocked with dozens of error messages advising the "something went wrong" and notify Hubpages, or the simple HTTP 404 website not found.In the former case, it locks my computer...

I was reading through the "answer" section and my browser froze up. The easiest fix always seems to be to close the browser and then open it back up. That solved the problem, but the very first thing I noticed was that the look of Firefox had changed. The main ones I'm seeing are the...

I've been using McAfee for virus protection since it came with my computer. It expires in 2 days. I've been told to let it expire and download the free virus monitoring by Avast. I'm not familiar with it, so I thought someone here may be able to guide me in the right direction -...
