Internet Explorer won't let me access certain site

  oo7juk 21:59 26 Jun 2003


For the past five nights I have been trying to access certain pages within a couple of web sites.

The sites are click here and click here

They let me into the site, but when I go to apply for a card or a quote it just reads 'Cannot find server', this happens all the time.

Is there something up with my IE settings. It would me appreciated if someone can try and access these sites and try to go further, just to see if it's the actual site that's down.

Many thanks.

A lot of banking sites require you to have Java installed and working if you don't have it, and if you have XP with SP1a you probably don't, you can get it from click here

Did not see anything called active scripting? did see 'script debugimg', no luck with that.

This is Microsoft's full explanation of how to configure IE Security settings:

Best bet is Proxomitron - see: click here

This will cure all your website blues and also acts as a popup stopper; it stops all advertising in fact.

If you use it make sure you follow the instructions carefully; on some websites you need to use the Bypass mode temporarily to enable filling in of order, credit card etc fields.
