I'll break it down. Been a week or so now so my dates are getting messed up. Anyhow, I had my OS winXP sp2 installed for over a year, nothing was majorly wrong, just noticed the "old os" slow down. So I formatted. Prior to format wiihack worked great. Formatted using same OS and SP2. Installed the same version of java and Firefox to find wiihacks has no style. This is why I'm so lost.
Why is it just wiihacks? How is this possible using the exact same setup with the exception of using QOS in my router (which is now turned off for testing purposes). To be honest, if I had used clone drive and just put a image back onto the partition? My system after formatting is just about the same thing. That's why I don't get it. If I try to narrow down what's changed in order to apply a fix, well nothing that I can think of. This is the damdest thing I've ever had happen to me on my pc.
To note, wiihacks did NOT work from the very first time I visited after re-installing.
I uninstalled java and visited wiihacks with NO java installed at all, looks the same, no change whats so ever. If I turn off basic styles in the view menu of FF I get a change but it's very little. Basically just removes anything thats colored and makes the thread area look like simple text without and frames.
Anyhow, I don't wanna format again, I think I'll just deal with it like this. At least until someday it auto-magically works again.
I'll try one last thing. I'll make a new user and see if the new user has issues. Only way that "should" be a issue is if I setup policies, I did not. So I don't know (shrug)
Update: Am using Opera browser on a new administrator user named wiihacks. No change. Whatever if effecting me is effecting "All Users".

You guys will NOT believe this. I go into my router settings. I have a linksys WRT54G. I open access restrictions, I check my access. I have "block urls by keyword" enabled. Keyword = popup. That's IT! If I had the word popup to that I get no styles. Again this makes NOOO sense, but if you can due such a thing with your router, try it please and let me know if you get the same result. Anyhow, I'm back in business. I can't believe it was that. So filtering the word popup from wiihack = not good. I will test to make 100% sure as right now I turned off "popup" in my url keywords and I see perfect styles. I'll turn it back on and see if im style-less.
edit, ok lol that wasn't it. Changed it back and I still got styles. Well I can't imagine why creating a new user, logging it in w/ no resulting changes. Deleting it and logging back in would fix it. Whatever. I really thank you guys, Anatec (maybe a typo, can't see proper spelling) especially, helped me think outside the java level and delve more into the windows/user aspect. Still makes no sense to me, but hey, I'm golden. Some things are better left this way.

I agree; you should have better things to do with your time than try and figure out this idiosyncratic reaction. I'm just glad you are once again able to access WiiHacks and participate as an active member. See you around, yurmy.
As your problem appears fixed (fingers crossed). I am closing this thread. If the problem recurs (NO, NO, NO) and you need the thread re-opened, just let me know.
