Web pages don't load!

  bobfan 00:08 07 Apr 2006


For the past few days we have been unable to get access to certain sites, so far it has been Ebay & the Times Educational Supplement site. We have never had a problem before & other sites load fine, don't think we have altered anything.
Any help would be much appreciated.

Maybe your links have gone awol, are you going from favourites ?

Go into google and type in ebay and click on the link from there and see if that works, if it does renew the favourite link.

Thanks dadyassa but still not working! Also tried getting onto the Microsoft update page & that didn't load.
Forgot to mention last time I'm using IE6 with Windows XP SP2 if that helps.

What ISP are you using?

Thanks for the 3 replied. The hostsToggle didn't work & neither did clearing the cache.
I'm on UKonline & have been for nearly 1 year

Try a search of the forum for 'repair IE6', I have seen the link somewhere.

terryf & dadyassa thanks for the sugestions have tried repairing IE6 but still not resolved the problem, dadyassa - Microsoft is one of the sites I can't access!
I have just tried instaling Firefox to see if it's a IE problem but it's the same.
Does anyone think the problem could be with UKONLINE? Just a thought as I'm really stuck with this one.
Also why would Ebay & Microsoft be blocked but others, like this one load fine!

Thanks for all the replies.

Have you got Spyware doctor installed? cos its popup blocker can sop you going to sites until you add the domain to the white lists
