IE Problem

Hi,


I'm having a problem where once in a while I can't access certain websites at all.


Basically I'll try to access these two sites specifically: www.freedomphalanx.com and www.metallica.com. When I navigate to them instantly I'll get the 'Page Cannot Be Displayed' message. Sometimes I can hit refresh and it will load up the page, but often it will just display that again.


I wait about a minute or two and finally the sites will show up. Every other site (that I found so far) will work even when those two won't, although sometimes another site won't work (www.cityofheroes.com). I have other computers on the same internet connection and they have no problems navigating to the site.


I'm using the latest version of IE 6.0 (although I also tried during these 'down times' to navigate the site through Netscape and the same thing happens: I can't access the site) and Windows XP Pro.


Any help would be good! Thanks!

Yeah I quoted the wrong post. I meant to quote the one about what security I am using.

Go to tools>>internet options>>trusted sites.

You can add that site if you want. I don't add anything in my trusted sites but if you trust them, you could add them and see if it helps.
