Some web pages won't load

March 16, 2007 at 14:59:26
Specs: WinME, 600

There are some webpages that will load just fine, like this one, while others for example won't. I have temporarily shut off the Norton Internet security 2006 for 5 minutes, and retried, but the same message appears, the one that says to refresh the page, blah, blah, blah. I have checked the security level and reset to default, still no access to many pages.Some pages like our local library, Canadian and US websites, some will load just fine while others will not. I can't figure this out. I did a full system scan with Norton Internet security 2006 and everything checked out fine. Has anyone got any ideas as to why some pages can be viewed while others can't?

Gerry Jam, possible you have a Trojan? Some target specific websites for one reason or another and won't allow access. Be aware that a virus and a Trojan are similar, but not the same. Many times, an AV detects one it can't clean , other times, it gets missed entirely.
If you need to clean one, A² can do the job and you can get it free @:
among other places.
If it turns out that you need to use it, be sure to update prior to running. They just released a new update recently and it changes all the time. Things are in a constant state of flux.

Thanks Ed. I have also noticed that I cannot access any of the Microsoft webpages.I have run Registry mechanic Ver. 5.1 and it found and fixed 333 problems, unfortunately not this problem.Norton virus definitions have been updated and a full system scan was completed with no problems detected.I will check out the site you posted and hopefully it will help. Will post results later.

Hi Gerry

I was having the same problems I had a tracking cookie that was blocking alot of sites. I am pretty tight on the cookies but some how they got this past or it got corrupted. I removed it and so far I can go to the sites that were previously blocked. If you can't find the offending cookies you might have to Clean all your cookies but make sure you have your passwords and such saved because you will lose you auto logins and othe auto info. Hope this helps

I have the same prob. I tried to install a new video card but had to take it out. Ran updates, 2 antispywares to delete tracking cookies, etc. and deleted some old programs and now I can load sites like google or youtube but my local tv station, radio station, or any msft sites won't load including windows update site. Those sites must be running something that is blocked?
I tried netscape 9.0, IE 7.0 and firefox-none worked.
Gerry-did you fix your problem??

I have the very same problem. It has gotten worse. For a while I could sometimes access certain sites, but now almost never. Yet, some sites are fine, including google.
I have cleared all cookies, adjusted all security settings, talked to my ISP, made sure there is no IP conflict (I have a desktop and two laptops on a wireless home network.) When I first got a new computer three months ago, there was nothing I couldn't access. Now... well I'm stuck and frustrated. Any help?

Hi justajournalist. The problem continued without any positive results or clear understanding as to why it occured. I ended up just this past weekend formatting the hard drive and reinstalling the operating system, Security software and other desired software.The computer is now running just fine without any problems of any kind. So, if you have all your personal info backed up,copies of your software and a few hours you can devote to a full format, assuming you are comfortable with the process then I would recommend a full system format and reinstall.Then run a full systen scan with a current virus detection software of your choice. If you don't have a second computer connected to the internet that is free of the above problem that you can copy some of the network and settings from, then remember to right down all internet, network and dial up connection information. I found that the more information I wrote down the less I needed it, however the opposite was also true. The less I wrote, the more I needed. So strike a comfortable balance if that is the course of action you feel you must take given all that you have tried thus far. The computer that had the problem is an IBM Aptiva 2194 with a P3 600 cpu running windows 2000 Professional, Office 2003 and Norton Internet Security 2006. My norton subscription had expired so I had to download a new subscription because I learned that Norton no longer sells new software at the retail level that supports Windows 2000 or earlier. Their anti virus software now only covers Windows XP and Vista. I hope this helps.
