Hi, I'm un abled to access a few webpages that other computers can. I've tried resetting the MTU but that didn't work. I've tried turning of the firewalls. There are no restrictions to any website in my security option. I've tried regedit and there was no exceptions. I've also tried wirelessly connecting and plug in to the modem itself to see if it would make any difference. I'm using Windows XP. Anyone have any ideas? :whistling:

Hi Ping...

What sites can't you access? Can you link me to one or two of them so I can look at them? This sounds like an ActiveX or Java problem at the moment.

Open "Internet Options" in Control Panel. Under the "Security" tab, click on the "Internet" icon and set the slider to "Medium", then click on the Internet icon in the box at the top and click on the "Custom Level" button. Check the settings you find there against this GUIDE.

Do this for each of the icons except "Local Intranet". "Apply" any changes and reboot. Try the pages again.

If you find these settings are correct, let me know and we'll look at the java you have installed.

I'm afraid that my browser won't pull up your GUIDE link that you posted either.

My trusted site is at low should I make it medium also?

Leave it at low just for the moment...

Download the attached zip folder to your desktop. Right click on it and choose "Extract All". Follow the prompts to extract the files within to your desktop. These are the images from the guide...right click on them and choose "Preview" to open them...this will allow you to zoom in so you can read them.

The file names indicate the zones they represent.
