For deltona. That web site had the Coolweb hijacker on it.

As most of us don't like spyware, I removed your post.

Here's your post minus the bad site:
"Website Woes

Hi, this is similar to a couple of threads i've read on here, but I still cannot resolve Sad

I run Win XP SP2 with IE6 over a 2mB broadband link. I cannot access www.********* but can get every other website no problem. My friends can get it including those using the same provider (tiscali). I've swapped my firewall from the ZAP I use normally to the Windows one, and have also turned it off. Still no luck.

I switched to Mozilla Firefox, still no joy. I softened my security settings as per another thread here, still no joy. I pinged the server and it says it 'could not find host'. I did tracert and at hop 16 it times out. I cannot get it through a google link either.

Anybody any ideas?

Thanks in anticipation, deltona "

Since your ping didn't work, that means the DNS or name lookup failed. It could be many things but since the noted site had COOLWEB hijacking code on it, it's too possible your machine is suffering from spyware or your ISP has blocked the site.

The Samsung RF23M8090SG

One of the best French door fridges we've tested

A good-looking fridge with useful features like an auto-filling water pitcher and a temperature-adjustable "FlexZone" drawer. It was a near-flawless performer in our cooling tests.
