I've been blocked from my favourite website for around 3 months now. I've spoken to some online friends who say the website is still up and running. It's a forum. I was just wondering if anybody knows how I can get back on this website? I have no idea whether I have been blocked from this website or whether I just cannot get on.

All help appreciated!

Which browser are you using?
Which browser are your friends using?
Do you live with anyone who could have changed the browser settings?
Do you use a firewall which can block specified websites?

Answer these questions for me and I should be able to help you :tazz:.

Not that your meant to of course... err... :tazz:

Sometimes froums are set up with other credentials they check people with other than ip address, especially now that not all ip are static.

Okay try going to Tools >> Internet Options

Under the Security Tabs, click on the 'Restricted Sites' icon, then click 'Sites', and make sure it isn't there. If it is, remove it.

If it isn't, check your firewall settings, but since I forgot to ask you which firewall you use, that's a bit difficult to guide you through ;) .

If none of that helps, are you sure you're not banned from the website? What error message do you receive when you try to access it?

Sorry for all the questions :tazz: .

Hey don't worry about the questions, you are helping!

It isn't listed under restricted sites. I have Zone Alarm, Avast and Windows Security Alerts . I've looked around these programs and it doesn't seem to be effecting.

I could've been banned from this site, but I find it very unlikely seeing as I've been a long term member of it... ;)
