Failing that Carolyn, it may be an overzealous firewall program..but this is best answered by the likes of UKMicky et al....Listen, if you want to view 'special' pics !!...email me ok ? Men are the same as women, just inside out !
quote:Originally posted by CarolynI've been trying to access a particular website and I keep getting a "This page can't be displayed" message. I had a few friends try to access the site and they were successful. Evidently the problem is with my pc. Any suggestions?
quote:Originally posted by CarolynI tried, couldn't get on from there either.
quote:Originally posted by HadrianThis is most unlikely to be anything to do with external assess to the website. It is far more likely to with how the security is set up on the pc and browser. And perhaps firewall may be involved.What you do speaks so loudly that I cannot hear what you say.
quote:Originally posted by CarolynLOL! First, I don't know any responsible adults, and second, expect an e-mail coming soon.

quote:ANOTHER SOMEONE I can't see the problem being a software firewall, since software firewalls tend to be more concerned with inbound connections than with outbound connections.
quote:Originally posted by ukmickyquote]also carolyn click on tools at the top of the explore page, scroll down to manage add-ons in the window that appears, there is a button that says "show" which give access to two windows make sure that everything is enabled in these windows. these add-ons deal with things like flash ,java etc(carolyn did you try what i said in my earlier post) ps always try to keep a note of any changes you make and if possible create a restore point in system restorepps ive had the same problem in the past and the only way i could resolve it was to reload my firewall software (NIS) Just to let you know you not alone. GOOD LUCK Michael

Are you on broadband or dial-up?Hi George - My ISP is my local phone company, which is a high speed connection.Do you use the computer to connect up to some business network (over a virtual network)?Nope, no networks.Are there any other sites you have problems getting to? You can try and see if you can get to my web site (which is also on a shared server, and so will require HTTP 1.1). If yo manage to get through, note the time you got through, and I will see if anything peculiar turns up on the site logs at the time you log in.

quote:Originally posted by ukmickycarolyn if your pc is running slow and is taking 7 minutes (thats a life time )to log off and you havnt got a virus then your best option is to reload your pc. My pc gets like that occasionally due to my kids filling it up with crap. Did you get a instalation disc with your pc which automatically reformats and copys all the programs which came with your pc back on to your hard drive. if you did then its easy just save your passwords and all that needs saving to a spare cdrom . place the instalation disk in the cd drive and restart your pc. i reload my pc every six months.Michael
