Cannot access Woollies website - why not?

  purplesmiley 10:03 03 Dec 2005

Does anyone have any ideas why I can't access the woollies website? I don't have any probs with any other websites, other people can access the site (so I know its not down) but I can't get on :(

I have windows XP, internet explorer and zone alarm firewall (free version) - if that makes any difference

I need to get my xmas shopping done! Help please :)

thanks :)

click here - is this the address you use?

If so, what message do you get or what happens when you try to connect?

click here is what comes up when I type in the website addy. and the message - "cannot find server"

Try this:

find a file called


on the pc - it is a hidden file and has no extension - simply called hosts

rename hosts.old

reboot and see if it works
