Iíve done everything from:
Disabling firewall, Antivirus
Firefox, IE, and Opera All same results, blank screen or this page cannot be displayed.
No issue with any other web pages that I have used for years.
Cannot browse by IP or URL.

I have the same problem, using IE6, Mozilla and Firefox. One clue might be with a specific example.

I cannot access sites using www. but if I leave that off I can reach the sites. For example, I type www.buzzflash.com or click on the email links and get the page cannot be found, but type http://buzzflash.com and it comes up fine, except all the links built in to the page don't display, because they use "www.". Another is nerve.com. Using http://nerve.com I can get to the site but cannot access the renewal page because the link is www.

These pages used to work fine!

Well, donnyball, your case is still some what different from mine.

I can NOT access the sites AT ALL ... like I said by URL or IP.

Though the sites did work for Years and for it to stop is just SO Frustrating ;)

Hopfully someone can come up with a solution to this, as I'm still searching from page to page of DNS problems for SOME kind of a solution. :tazz:

Hey, Donald did solve my computer problem. Here's the file he cleared:

"hosts" in c:\windows\system32\drivers\etc

Did not delete the file, just emptied it. Voila! Everything works fine now.

Initially he feared some malware was hijacking addresses, but then determined that one of my programs is not allowing updated url's but keeps looking at the original. So when a site changes its address the browsers still look for the original address which, of course, no longer exists. It couldn't hurt for you to try it although he said it most likely would not help. Let us know!

Ahh, thats good to hear! But you see here:

The sites address has not changed ... but Ill look anyways into the file and see what happens, but I think he maybe right of it not working ...
