Difficulty accessing the 'sign in' section of a web site

I would be grateful for some help as I am having difficulty getting into the 'sign in' section of the web site of a well known bank to set up my internet account. I can access the web page no problem but when I click on the 'sign in' tab there is a delay and then a 'bloop' noise as though pop ups are being blocked. The bank have assured me that there is no problem at their end. I have disabled the pop up blocker for the site and cleared my search history but still no success. Any advice would be really welcome

Try another browser to start with.

Sometimes, it's an easy work-around.

If you now use IE, go to www.mozilla.org and download Firefox. If you now use Firefox, try IE.
It might help, and - if not - excludes some possible problems.

Have you cleared your cookies?

In reply to: Difficulty accessing the 'sign in' section of a web site

When I get no progress like that, it is usually due to my having denied cookies for the site and I need to delete the "refusal setting" and allow it. If you use IE, I vaguely remember a setting somewhere about letting a page launch from another page. If you use IE, you might have a scout around for that (if my memory isn't deceiving me), it could have something to do with it.

Many thanks for your suggestions - I tried clearing the 'cookies' and also 'Firefox' as opposed to Internet Explorer but neither worked. My daughter suggested holding down the control key whilst clicking on the sign in box - low and behold it worked!
Thanks again

That sounds like circumventing some popup-blocker. You didn't tell us about having blocked popups from this site. Why nog clear that setting?
