Are you on broadband or dial up?

Let's try one other thing. We're going to try the Opera browser and if you still can't access the sites, then I think you should call your ISP especially since you could access them a week ago.

Go here:
http://www.opera.com/

Click "Free Download" button at the bottom, download and install it and see if you can access them from that browser.

I'm on broadband, but using belkin wireless internet from my brothers computer. If I remember rightly it does not work on that computer either, even though it has done until recently. No antivirus/malware/spyware programs have either been installed or altered on that computer recently.

I've just tried using Opera, and there's no luck there either. It must be the ISP, but I've no idea why it has just stopped working!

There may be other sites you are unable to access as well, but if you haven't ever been to them you wouldn't know it and with them not working on the other computer as well it definitely sounds like a problem with the ISP.

I have problems accessing some sites on occassion, but I'm on dialup :tazz:

Hmm, it's a mystery! It's irritating more than anything, because I visited those sites daily and then all of a sudden they stopped working :tazz:

Thank you for all your suggestions, I'll get in touch with my ISP and see if anything can be done!

I totally understand that, I would be irritated as well.

Sorry we couldn't help more there, but hopefully your ISP will get it cleared up. :tazz:
