RE: Cannot access single website



Naas: thank you very much for the suggestions. I have already done some of
them and will do the others as soon as I can. This has happened to at least
one other person in a photography forum that I participate in, which is
strange. He also cannot access olympusamerica.com or olympus.com. I know
that both sites are up and running. Like me, he can access any other site on
the web. Thanks -- I'll keep trying your suggestions.

Best regards,
Scott

I cannot access olympusamerica.com only regardless of which browser I use
(IE, Firefox or Opera). I can access all other sites, just not that one. I
turned off my Norton Interent Security to see whether that was the problem
but it had no effect. Is there some XP (I have XP Professional) setting that
I might have changed? Any other ideas? Thanks very much.

= Before we go further are you connecting by Router or Modem, in either try to
Power or unplug the Power cord for the Router/Modem for about 40 seconds or
so be generous with it <g> turn the computer OFF and wait for the time to go
by!!.
Then Turn the Router/Modem ON and wait a minute or so then Power ON the
computer and try to establish a connection and try the link, does it work?.

Open windows Explorer and locate the Hosts file and Rename it to Hosts.OLD
Reboot the machine and try, does it work.

= If not working still try this:
search for them by this name *index.dat* and you can delete them
then the on reboot the system will recreate them for you.
Some of them here:
C:\Documents and settings\Administrator\Cookies = index
C:\Documents and Settings\User\Cookies = index
C:\Documents and settings\User\User data = index
C:\Windows\Temp\Cookies =index
C:\Windows\Temp\History = index
C:\Windows\Temp\Temporary Internet Files\Content.IE5 = Index.dat
Reboot your machine and see if this helped.
