    I need someone to help me before I pay some guy $30 to fix the problem.

    Here's the deal. I have an account with a web site. Had this account for YEARS. Never had an issue with the sight. Now I get this new computer, I'm surfing the net fine. Every web site I visit works except this one. Front page loads and thats it. Every other page either hangs up for a very long time and times out or I get a page can not be displayed message.

    This website works fine on every other computer I use.

    I did the usual, deleted all the cookies, checked my security setting (did nothing with the firewall, don't know much about it), enabled and disabled add ons and still nothing.

    Can anyone help or suggest something?

    For the record, I use firefox but IE does the same thing.

    lol, they all work fine!

    It's actually the sporting news site. I'm a premium member and have been for a long time. I'm at work right now and surfing it fine but that's not the case at home.:(

    Like I said, front page loads fine, can't get anywhere after that. Even the customer service link at the bottom times out or as it stands now gives me a page can not be displayed.

    http://www.sportingnews.com/

    I enter my info in the top right and it never loads or I don't even enter my info and click on any link and it does the same thing.

    Could be a corrupt profile of the desktop or the browser (both have profiles)

    Go into the control panel and create a new user. Log off the computer and log in as the new user and see if the site works.

    I will try that as soon as I get home and let you know. Crossing my fingers because the possible solutions I have found on the net today maybe a little to tech savey for me but then again it may just be that the directions are written by all the guys that I beat up in high school.:p:

    Means you owe dooms $50 for finding the problem, now you will owe him $50 if you want further assistance from him.

    *Dooms once he pays you the $50 I will expect my 10% finders fee*
