Strange internet problem

Postby stratobuddy » Mon Sep 13, 2010 4:39 pm

I have suddenly found that I can only access a few websites (obviously including this one).

All the others eg my local paper, YouTube, 4shared etc etc etc just sit there saying "waiting for...." and the website NEVER appears.

They were OK earlier on.

Does anyone have any idea what is happening?

BTW All the lights on my router show it is working OK.

How about clearing the cookies and browsing history, Alan?

They are gradually coming back again, I think it was something to do with cookies.

You've done this, I suspect, but if not:

Tools - internet options - delete browsing history

In view of the spam email situation that Alan put on and which I have just replied to - it certainly seems as if something has got into your computer Alan.
