I have added a site to my "trusted sites" list in Internet Explorer:
http://www.bravenet.com.
However I cannot get the site to load at all.
I keep getting the error message:
Internet Explorer cannot display the webpage
I have tried over and over to find the problem.
I can get the site: http://www.bravenet.net to load, but most of the links on that site are to a bravenet.com site, including the contact us information.
I would ask them (Bravenet) to help me, but I cannot get to their help or contact files.
When I try to go from Google to bravenet.com I get an error box with the message:
==================
The current web page is trying to open a site in your trusted sites list.
Do you want to allow this?
Current site: http://www.google.com
Trusted site: http://www.bravenet.com
Yes No
Warning: Allowing this can expose your computer to security risks. If you don't trust the current Web Page, choose No.
===================
When I answer Yes, I still get the error message:
Internet Explorer cannot display the webpage.
Do I have some settings incorrect in my security settings somewhere.
Mostly, I have not had any problems viewing the sites I want to see.
I do have one other site that is a problem in the same way.
It also is listed in my trusted sites:
http://server.iad.li...lp.dspStartChat

What is the point of adding a site to your trusted sites when it doesn't allow the site when you say yes?
I am totally confused on this issue.
ADDITIONAL NOTE: I have also tried to load the site in Firefox and Netscape. I get the same error messages in both browsers.
Please give me guidance.
Thank you
