Web Pages Not Loading....

When I open most web pages from my favorites list using Netscape and IE browsers, the page comes up but when I log on and/or try to navigate through the site, nothing happens. For example, the activity bar will start moving but will not go to the page I want. Sometimes after several minutes, I'll get the message "Page contains no data". There are a few site's that will load properly and let me navigate through them.

I've tried using several of WinXP's restore points, tried reinstalling both browsers, checked all settings and all were in correct order, but the problem still exists.

My computer: WinXP Home, Netscape and IE browsers, 512MB RAM, Pentium 4, 1.8 processor, Verizon DSL, etc.

I don't know what else to do. I would certainly appreciate any help on this problem.

First do you have any pop-up blockers running? If so disable them for now. Then go to your security settings and lower them. Click Tools>Internet Options>Security>Internet and click a lower stting like med-low and try it again.
