Web page not opening properly? is this cookies?

  pcgal 10:58 19 Jul 2003

I have 2 computers at home networked together.
The webpage I regularly visit runs fine on my client computer but not on my main pc.
All other webpages work fine on my main pc!
The webpage opens up no problem on my main pc but when I try to navigate the site it just hangs for a while then a "done" message appears in the bottom left hand corner of the task bar and it just shows a blank page under the webpage heading. I then go to my client pc and all the information appears no problem.
Is this a cookie problem? Its puzzling me because its just this one website thats the problem. Can anyone advise.....thanx pcgal

Have you a firewall that is stopping cookies, pop-ups etc for the site?

Not sure if this is a cookie problem. However you could try:

In IE, File/Import and Export and export your cookies (say to a floppy).

Then in IE Tools/Internet Options "Delete cookies" button. Or use click here which will wipe all cookies and more.

If this doesn't work you can Import your cookies back from the floppy.

Are they set the same on both machines?
