Hi, I am running a Windows Xp SP2 PC, and am unable to access several sites I consistently use. www.brisbet.com, www.winticket.com, www.americatab.com. I've been over the issue with some tech specialists, and they determined the problem isn't W3C compliancy (as one person suggested). I think it may be some sort of spyware, which brings me to 2 questions: first off, has anyone ever heard of spyware affecting individual sites like this? Second, where in the registry should I start looking for such spyware?



P.S. I looked in the hosts file, but nothing was there.

Spyware generally targets sites like this, by adding them to the hosts file. Sounds like your IP address or range may be being blocked by those sites.

Problem solved. I found nothing in the host file, but after running a veritable schmorgasborg of malware removal programs, it's finally gone! Thanks!
