Can reach a particular site - but no further.....

  Diemmess 16:33 09 Jan 2008

I am using XP Pro, Aol, AVG and Zone Alarm.

I can open this site click here but if I click on the badge as indicated nothing further happens. It doesn't freeze, just won't open anything more.

This is the only site I know of where I get stuck.

Certainly the fault has been there for some time, I just haven't bothered. The site manager says it works for him and I have no reason to doubt it.

I have tried ignoring the Aol screen and opening this site in IE (version 6)instead, but no difference.

Possibly blocked by ZA or AVG?
IF so where do I look and what must I do?

Hi, when I clicked on that badge, it opened as expected.

Maybe you need to set it in the Exceptions list in your firewall - though I did not have to do that or make any other alterations, it simply opened correctly as normal.

Maybe a glitch in the Registry - try CCleaner click here

PS - I am using Firefox.

Works OK for me, looks like a security setting issue probably in the firewall, is everything set to default in your browser?

It worked for me using ZA, but I use Avast, so maybe AVG is the culprit.

no problem opening the first main page then clicking on the badge and 'entering' viewing with IE6, Hosts installed and running avg7.5 ; no adjustment to my firewall required either

I just tried it with IE7 opens OK.

It all works for me using 98se and Netscape 7.2

I would say that it is some kind of blocking software on your computer or in your browser that is doing it. check all firewalls
