Hey,

I sometimes could not get onto certain websites e.g bbc.co.uk (It would say page 404 not found for IE) so i changed from IE to Firefox and things are still the same( Still says Problem loading page). However, when i go on another PC on the same wireless network in the same house it gets on fine.

Please help :(

Thanks

Have you taken your router out of the equation ?

It is an intermittent occurence. When you cannot access the BBC can you access another page?

If it's only one machine, and it's only some pages, I'd say it has to be some security software that has a list of blocked pages.

Start, Run, NOTEPAD c:\Windows\system32\drivers\etc\HOSTS.

Select all and copy and paste to a message here.

Well, that's no it. :)

Try booting in safe mode with networking and see if that changes the behavior.
