I have recently noticed that some sites that i could enter without any problems have now stoped me from entering.i am running windows xp with norton firewall & norton antivirus, i have tried closing norton firewall & antivirus down & enable xp firewall but i still cannot enter these sites do i need to alter anything else so i can gain access,i have not change any of my setting so i cannot understand why this has happened, please advice.
thanks for your replies vog & powerless, my isp is aol,i have tried to get into click here & click here & click here i use to be able to get into these sites,the only thing that happens is i get a blank screen
Try doing a search for a file called HOSTS (no file extension). If you find one (or more) open in Notepad and look for reference to those sites. If you find one (or more) try renaming the file to HOSTS.OLD and try again.
Sorry this will not be of much help, I'm on BT Yahoo BB and can get into tne Pentland site but not get 'page cannot be displayed' by the sound of their web addresses they don't sound like the type that would be blocked. Sorry.
Are you sure you've got the addresses right of the second and third ones as I get "pages cannot be found" (of course the sites may be down!). The first one I am able to get using Opera but not IE6 (don't ask me why!).
