There is one site that will not load on my pc. I is It will load on other computers that I have tried. I have gone to internet options and set secutity to low . I have gone to advanced and requested that this site be allowed all cookies.I have gone to privacy edit and told to always allow.
What happens is that i request site and the status bar shows loading. It takes a minute or two then it says done but all that appears is a blank white page. On the message board for that site there are a few other people that have the same trouble but many do not. There has not been a solution published there. I have uninstalled Spy bot then tried but no luck. I then installed the newer spy bot(1.3). Previously had version 1.2
Please try to help me.
Thank you BEV

One item is see which has not been recommended before is "Have you searched the system registry for and found anything?"

I am afraid that I do not have any idea how or what to do in the registery. Mostly novice here.

I am afraid that I do not have any idea how or what to do in the registery.

"Description of the Microsoft Windows Registry (Q256986)" - all MS operating system versions, and "How To Use the Windows XP and Windows Server 2003 Registry Editor Features (Q310426)."

Going back to your question previously concerning "S&D", I would like for you to read:

1. Hypothetically, you'll find that the S&D Immunization feature entries in the system registry equals approximately 44 lines of addresses and at least that many values. Please note in addition should you decide to un-immunize these addresses, the values are not removed only nulled which isn't a problem -- just stating the fact.

2. Considering SpywareBlaster's feature for Internet Explorer protection . . . and the Restricted Sites protection is . . ., it adds approximately 1,400 addresses and probably that many or double in value lines.

3. If concerned and specifically desire to see an example in your computer's registry, -- I'm only pretty sure it will be there provided the above features have been enabled, and you can step further through the Domains or History or ActiveX Compatibility address(s) on your system to see more. To review the captured information in text file format for the two subjects, use the hyperlinks:

a. "S&D" (The approach for this software instead of detecting or removing targets, it inoculates a computer from executing certain software, stops you from downloading some types of parasite, and stops other things from working)

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Internet Settings\ZoneMap\Domains\

b. "SpywareBlaster"

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\ActiveX Compatibility\{00000000-0000-0000-0000-000000000000}


HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Internet Settings\P3P\History\

Note: "Registry fixes" which you may find useful at the S&D site are:

Spybot-S&D Wizard disable
Spybot-S&D SDHelper uninstall
Spybot-S&D system start run entry (uninstall)
Spybot-S&D full settings removal
Context menu for DLL files (install)
Context menu for DLL files (uninstall)
Internet Explorer Settings lock (install)
Internet Explorer Settings lock (uninstall)

4. Further, I do not know what the circumstances are IF/when using Norton but I assume from the information published that prevent HTML strings and/or specified pop-up or pop-under ad windows items, they are most likely written to the system registry also which may compound situations, "Norton Internet Security or Norton Personal Firewall."

I note that you are using IE. At Internet Options, have you tried the 'Content' tab to allow a site ? Try using another browser, e.g. Mozilla Firefox.

Thank you for your reply. Yes I have used the content tab to allow a site. Thanks for the thought.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
