error 403 a forbiden IE problem help please

  Shamrock7 10:48 18 May 2004


I am using windowsME version 4.90.30000 and Internet Explorer version 6.0.2800.1106IS.

When I've tried to access sites such as Majorgeeks and javacool to download spyware blaster, I get an 'error 403 forbidden Internet explorer' message. I cannot also gain access to the site to download 'stinger'

I've run avg, spybot s&d, adaware6 and all have come up clear. (all have been updated).

Could someone help and explain whats happening and how I get to these sites.

Many thanks,

neighbour came round with floppy disk with stinger on. When copied or ran from 'A' drive got the message..'unknown has caused a error in unknown, unknown will now close. When closed got the following message 'this operation has been cancelled due to the restrictiond in effect on this Admin'...there is only me using PC.

Also tried to access Mozilla site and got message saying 'may not have permission due to credentials you have supplied HTTP error 403 Forbidden IE'

This was also the message I got when I attempted to log onto the 'Major geeks' site.

Any help on solving this would be very welcome as I've run out of ideas, and hair!

turn off whatever firewall you are running and try again

If you have only just started getting these errors then maybe system restore will help.

If not and you have the full me disc then a repair install over the top of the original might be worth considering.
