  • Blocked web site help

    There are a couple sites that I am unable to load any URLs from and I have not edited my HOSTS file at all. Any other ideas? Everyone else in the office can access these but my PC cannot. What can I check for in my browser (Firefox 2.0.0.8) or on my PC?

    When things like that happen I generally run ccleaner

      OK, I looked at that program and it has a lot of options as to what gets removed. Do you remove everything or do you leave any options unchecked?

          Compare the DNS servers from the office against your PC. Or if it is a stand alone perhaps consider switching to openDNS

            How do I compare the DNS? We are all on the same network and we connect to the internet via a high speed static IP if that helps.

              You are set up to be on the net, this results in you using 2 name servers to resolve hosts you type into a browser. One computer uses one set of name servers, and you perhaps use a different one, resulting in pages perhaps not being resolved properly. So, to at least exclude this as option you could compare the setup of the two systems.

                    I did run that program to no avail. We are not on AOL, we are using Charter business high speed cable with a static IP. I've found multiple URLs that will not load on my PC but do on every other computer in the office. The only difference I can see is that my server is using Microsoft Server 2003 and everyone else has Windows XP Professional. Our IT guy did this as my PC has some important databases and files and it was better I guess. Not sure if this helps, it seems daily more sites get "blocked" ???
