First, please don't SHOUT.

Look for a file called HOSTS (no file extension). If you are running Windows XP it would be in

C:\windows\system32\drivers\etc

If you find it, rename to HOSTS.OLD (or whatever), restart and try again.

Is your antivirus up to fate? Also have you ran antispyware like adaware, spyboy, cwshredder etc.
Can you access other web site ok?

Btw, please use lower case as uppercase is the equivalent of shouting!

First--Please do not SHOUT (Capitals are shouting in Internet forums).It sounds as if you have a virus or a trogan which when it meets the banks security system, blocks you out, The same is possible true of your other sites when you meet a 'secure' area. Get a good anti-virus (AVG is quite highly recommended) and a Firewall.Download and run ADAWARE and SPYBOT (both free programs). This should clean up your system, and hopefully allow you to carry out your online banking. If you have spyware etc on your system and you had access to your bank, it is possible for someone to get hold of your details and empty your account.
