cant find certain internet pages

  craigy1 21:03 08 Sep 2003

i am running an xp pc with 256 ram ddr400.

now i have just noticed for the past few days maybe a week, i cant seem to find certain web pages.

it takes ages to find them and then it says that the page doesnt exist.

i do know they are there, because i have been on them on other peoples pc's.

i have ran a virus checker but nothing came back.

thanks for any help

Perhaps your firewall is blocking them

i have stopped my firewall and that has been installed for ages.

this has only just started

I had this when I first went on to Broadband turned out that my connection wasn't stable and was dropping off then reconnecting. When it dropped off it could not find the page cured by new MODEM.
