One Website Will Not Load Completely

The reluctant website is http://games.myspace.com/ :whistling:

This website works for every other computer except our two pc's that are currently networked at home. Both of our PC's begin to load the page, but all we get is a blue menu bar and top banner... until we click Stop on the web browser and suddenly about half of the page is there. We get the games' menu and banner on the left, and we can see the featured game and most popular, but that's about it. What is going on?

Both of our computers run on XP, we have no firewall, but we do have McAfee Virus Scan Enterprise 7.1. My PC has Firefox and IE 7beta, and my husband's has IE6. This problem has been occurring for at least a couple of months and on all of our web browsers. We have Spybot S&D, Ad-Aware SE, and HJT. Since the page kinda loads partly if you click Stop, I am assuming it's not being blocked. My PC has 512MB of RAM and my husband's has 768MB of RAM. We have a cable connection and a router. The cable connection has been reset (due to periodic cable outages, :blink: ). We have a Linksys Router (the one that Vonage sends when you sign up).

I have tried increasing the size of Temporary Internet Files and Virtual Page Memory, but it hasn't affected the page loading. I have tried deleting all of my cookies and Temporary Internet Files and still no change. This is the only web page that we've run across that does this. If we just let the browser try to load the page (for about 5 minutes or so) it will eventually give a Page Cannot be Displayed on IE browsers or error out on Firefox.

Works fine here, Firefox and IE6. But as its myspace and they are kind of painfully busy at the moment, expect issues. Try throughout the day.

Issues like this can usually be traced back to the router. See if you can borrow another one from a friend for a couple of days.

I know the website loads fine for other people. I just tried a third computer at home, one of our laptops, and that's giving me the same thing our other two PCs get. If it is a router issue, what do I do?

what if you plug one computer DIRECTLY into the cable modem and try thatway (after unplugging the router from the modem and plugging your pc directly to the modem you may need to power cycle the modem by turning it off for a minute then either restarting the computer or doing start > run > ipconfig /release THEN ipconfig /renew)

All we have is the "Windows Firewall," and disabling that did not cause a difference in the website's loading.

just went to the site...and on my end there's quite a few things broken...and the reason they look broken is because they are linking to ads.doubleclick.net which i have bocked through my hosts file because that site is KNOWN to be a spyware distributor.....none of the thumbnails load either (all linked to i.gamerival.com which i have no info on)...your mcaffee may be blocking this or any of your antispyware programs
