When I go to site "" the Firefox "wyciwgn" does some kind of redirect then gives the message: "Transferring data ". The page never loads and the message does not go away. This happens on other sites as well.

The recent pages shows wyciwgn://1/

My virus scans show no problems and my virus software is up to date.

This site renders OK in IE 7

Any ideas on what is happening here? Is there something that needs enabling or disabling?
