Hi Reflections. welcome to Geeks to Go! <_<

Let us take a closer look at what is running on your PC. We'll need you to use a free diagnostic tool (HiJackThis) and post a log back here with the results.

Click the HijackThis Guide in my signature, download it and follow the instructions in the guide.

Most of what it lists will be harmless or even essential, DO NOT delete or modify anything yet! Someone will be along to tell you what steps to take after you post the contents of the scan results.

Hi Russ,

I don't see anything on your system that would be causing problems. My best guess is that the site server is blocking your IP address range. This is often done to prevent people that have abused or attempted hacking the site from accessing it. I'm not suggesting that you did anything improper, but someone that shares your IP adress range may have. This is especially true when accessing via dial-up.

You could try contacting the webmaster and informing them of your problem. They may be able to allow you access. webmaster@army.mil
