|I have a strange issue where my new laptop doesn't open certain websites that I commonly use on other computers. An example of this is http://www.mlb.com. When I attempt to navigate to this site I get the standard "The page cannot be displayed" error (the same error you would get if you had no internet connection.) |
The above happens when I use IE 6.0.
I then downloaded Firefox 3.0.9 and this websites partially opens and then freezes before all the content displays.
Next when I go into safe mode with networking this website opens up and displays perfectly in both browsers.
This tells me that something is running on my machine (when not in safe mode) that is causing the browsers not to handle some kind of content on mlb.com and similar websites correctly, but for the life of me I can't figure out what it is that is responsible. I tried disabling my firewall, anti-spyware, pop-up blocker and all IE add-ons and still get the same result when not in safe mode.
It appears that mlb.com and some of the other sites that I can't open run java.
Does anyone have any advice where I should be looking?
Thanks in advance.
