Just the one website? Maybe just a site/server problem. If so, nowt you can do.

Which browser are you using? Try a different one.

Having said that. Your first 2 links work fine here.
The third is dead.

I recommend uninstalling Yahoo toolbar or any other toolbars you may have installed. Not only do they take up space on your screen but their "convenience" comes with a price - they are spyware. Don't think so? Read the privacy policy.

Try using a cleaner such as CCleaner-Slim to clear out your Temp Internet Files, History, Cookies, etc, then see if the sites are accessible:

✔ Best Answer
Maybe worth running this, which removes all dubious toolbars:

Use the button "Download Now @BleepingComputer".

Save the download file (rather than running it). Double click the saved file then do the Scan. There is a Report (log) if you care to look at it, as well as options for items to be removed. I've usually found it OK to just run the Clean.

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks
