Web site problem -http 403 forbidden

  irp 19:59 01 Aug 2007


Just recently i have been having a problem when i try and access some web sites, i get the message http 403 forbidden. I have done a search and it seems it could be something to do with Zonealarm, which i have Zonealarm Pro, but i don't know how fo fix it. Could somebody furnish me with some instructions.I run Windows Xp,IE7

Thanks a lot

To see if it is Zone Alarm go to one of the websites and see if the error 403 comes up then disable the firewall and try it again. If it comes up the second time you at least know its Zone Alarm. If it still doesn't come up I would check the IE security setting, or even try Firefox and see what that does.
Remember to reenable Zone Alarm afterwards.

While not even hinting at the possibility that you may be involved.

It has been hinted that there are Web Sites that certain ISP's regard as unacceptable and have restricted access to them.

Totally-braindead, thank you for your suggestions, cant try them tonight, under orders of the wife, shes given me a to do list or else.

Wee Eddie, I hope my ISP doesnt think warehousing is a bit dodgy, my employers have kindly given me a new task and i was doing some research.
