Can't access some websites!

  subi 21:18 01 Jun 2007

Been trying to access the Netherlands Railways site click here all day, and cannot gain access - even tried links from other sites but no use. My wife has been able to access it from her work computer, so I guess the site is operating okay. I have tried checking the Firewall, Internet Settings etc. but still no good. Other sites I have on my favourites load quite quickly so I can't understand why this one is such a problem! Have used IE7, Firefox and Opera browsers but no good. I am with Virgin Media Broadband, O.S is XP Pro.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Tried the link using IE7 and Firefox but neither could load.
Would using Restore work?

Problem solved! Ran full " Check DISK " - took about one hour - and afterwards could access the site. Don't know what the problem was, though. Many thanks to VoG & woodchip for your help.
