Hello, I've decided to join up here and ask for advice, after not being able to solve a problem with viewing webpages.

I've been frequenting a website for about a month now without any problems, however on saturday night, I tried opening the site, and found that it wouldn't load up. Almost every other site loads up for me, but I have now noticed that certain websites aren't working. I had no trouble untill saturday evening, the site loaded fine before, but wont load now.

This is the websites URL http://tomokoka.sns.fc2.com/ It's a penpal community website, I'm not sure if anything to do with the webpage is coded could be stopping me accessing the site.

www.microsoft.com also wont load for me as another example. It only appears to be certain websites, because google still works, the firefox home page etc.

I did a virus scan, but this found nothing. I've also tried disabling my firewall, and trying to load up the webpages, they still won't load.

The penpal website loads at my school, So i'm certain the problem must be on my computer. But I honestly have no idea.

So does anyone know why only certain sites aren't loading up for me.

Does anyone have any ideas? Sorry If I'm being impatient, it's just this is really starting to get on my nerves.

I've tried the following.

Trying to access the websites with firewall off.

Trying to scan for viruses and spyware, had a couple of spyware but after fixing still not working.

Running winsock fixer.

Resetting my router.

Connecting to the website in safe mode, also didn't work.

The only thing that has worked has been loading the website up in a proxy.

Try this as a suggestion....

Download TFC by OldTimer to your desktop
  • Please double-click TFC.exe to run it. (Note: If you are running on Vista, right-click on the file and choose Run As Administrator).
  • It will close all programs when run, so make sure you have saved all your work before you begin.
  • Click the Start button to begin the process. Depending on how often you clean temp files, execution time should be anywhere from a few seconds to a minute or two. Let it run uninterrupted to completion.
  • Once it's finished it should reboot your machine. If it does not, please manually reboot the machine yourself to ensure a complete clean.


Download Auslogics Defrag from the link in my signature below. Auslogics Defrag in my opinion is better because:
It does a more comprehensive job at Defragging
It will actually show you what it is doing
At the end of working it will show you how much speed you picked up
You can view a online log of the files that Auslogics defragged

Ok first of all thankyou very much for responding. However in my dispair I managed to fix the problem, and have only just come back and seen your response. Thankyou very much however for taking the time to respond.

Turned out it was some problem with the MTU, saw someone on a topic on a different website mention this when I did a google search, decided to take a gamble and see if that was the problem. Messed about with the settings for about 10 minutes, and finally sorted it.

But again thankyou for responding, but the problem is now solved :).

The whois.com database reports "Invalid Domain Extension." for what that is worth.

Post #1: http://www.geekstogo...s...t&p=1681218. The site referred to (I right clicked it and looked at the properties, then went to http://www.whois.com, to look up the domain) does not show up in the whois database. I found that interesting, I hope the post is not inappropriate, if so please delete it at once. I'm just curious and my mind can't stop doing this stuff. :)

OK I was just wondering but I have already clicked on the site link and it came up. It may be a new site or has not registered. Not sure though :) :) :)

Well I don't know whether it would affect it, but the site has japanese webhosting... I don't really know much about this sort of thing, maybe that's why it dosen't show up. Thanks again.
