Hi, your link opens normally for me. In IE got to Tools>Internet Options and then click on Delete Cookies and Delete files. Re-start your computer then try the site again.

I tried as you advised, but still no joy am afraid. Any one else with other suggestions please?

You could try lowering your security settings in IE.
Start>Internet Options>Security ... Internet and Trusted sites.

Or failing that, perhaps you may need to 'Allow' the site through your Firewall, under Exceptions.

If no joy, you could then run the scan from Glary Utilities free from click here
it might be just a glitch in the Registry.

None of the advice received so far has worked, and I am still therefore having this problem. I cannot understand why I cannot access this URL which just happens to be one of my favourites as well. Any other offers please.
