Everytime i try to go to ewido it never fully opens

Ran these programs

Spybot-nothing
Ad-aware-nothing
Ewido-tracking cookie
cwshreeder-nothing
avg-nothing
hjt-nothing

Pinged it sucessfully


Checked the cookies.I do not see a cookie for ewido there.Typed www.ewido.net to allow,bingo.

Which Browser?

In reply to: (NT) The first link did,nt work.this does'nt make any sense

Start by clearing out all Temporary Internet Files and Cookies..(If using Firefox, clear the "Cache" and Cookies.)

Unless you've got a HOSTS file that's blocking the site, there should be no reason why it can't be reached..

Hope this helps.

Yes, There Is...And...

In reply to: (NT) No host file

...it's called HOSTS (plural, with no file extension). On Windows XP, it resides in the C\Windows\System32\Drivers\ETC folder. Even a brand new computer contains one called LMHOSTS.sam and HOSTS or similar. They're sample HOSTS files. All our computers contain at least a 1kb HOSTS file in the location mentioned. You can open it with Notepad.

If the HOSTS file doesn't contain the problem site, then check your spyware programs for a site blocking section. Likewise, check your browser, in this case Firefox, for blocked cookies that may have been added. ("Exceptions" tab at "Tools/Options/Cookies") Or "Restricted Sites" in Internet Explorer.

If you can't reach it in Firefox, can you reach the site using Internet Explorer?

Hope this helps.

Incredible,it was that stupid tea timer.

"check your spyware programs for a site blocking section"

I checked the settings and in blocked registry changes there was one entry.I did not know what it was but i removed it anyway.Tea timer always has pop ups and i probally clicked on deny.With the pop ups who knows what your allowing or blocking.


Problem solved
Thanx,
Tom
