I've been trying to connect to a discussion forum for the better part of two days. It was down for a time yesterday, but is up now.

I've worked with three of the moderators of the site, who are unable to figure out what might be preventing me from connecting.

When I try to type the url in, I get a MSN message stating that the URL can't be found.

When I google the site, I can't follow the hotlink in (although I can view cashed responses). I then get a message stating that the page I am looking for is currently unavailable.

Although I have IE Privacy Keeper, I have also manually cleared the temporary internet folder, cookies, etc. and rebooted.

I am running Windows XP with Service Pack 2 installed. It is up to date. The windows firewall is in place. I have tried disabling it for a moment to get in, but that didn't work.

I have AVG Free Edition, AdAware SE, Spybot up to date. No viruses detected. I am have up to date Spyware Blaster protection.

Why would one site suddenly be not be accessable? My ISP claims it's not related to them.

It is an adult site, but I have no filters on preventing the site from being accessed.

Any ideas? This is driving me crazy. :tazz: No one seems to be able to pin this one down.

Thanks for your help.

I thought it might be helpful to do a system restore, since I had no issues before yesterday.

However...when I try to do so...I have no system restore dates available to try. I don't know why that is, since I allow the maximum disc use storage.

Automatic System Restore only makes a System Restore rarely on my old computer never!! So you have to manually manke a restore point I make one every three months! And can you tell us what that site is? So I can go there and see if it is valid.
Thanks

EDIT: I just read your first post more clearly, So please DONT post the link as it is a adult web-site. Im afraid I cant help you on this! Lets hope someone else can help you!

Not to worry, I wouldn't have. :tazz:

I know the site works....their administrators have spent a long time trying to get me in.

Just a question....is it possible that my ISP caches their "page not available" info? That could be causing the problem. Although the site's been up for more than 24 hours.

I am have up to date Spyware Blaster protection.


Is it possible that the site is listed in Spywareblaster's database and you have to manually permit it?

I don't mind if you want to PM me the site link.
