    I am getting very frustrated. I have a laptop running XP and a desktop
    running Vista. For about a week now A few websites will not load (My bank web
    page and CNN .com) Both computers are connected to a router - laptop is
    wireless and the desktop is wired. The laptop connects to these sites
    normally but the desktop does not. I have tried all the tips (clear cache,
    temp files, etc) to no avail. Is there a diagnostic that can be run on IE7
    under vista or can I re-install IE7? My oldest restore point is dated after
    the problem occurred.

    Thanks for any help.

    Assuming that you are totally up to date with MSFT Updates perhaps you need
    to install the latest Java?
    Uninstall any other versions you may have via Control
    Panel/Programs/Uninstall a program.

    Thanks Peter for your help. Yes I am up to date with Microsoft. I deleted all
    Java and re-installed Java. It Made no difference. On those two sites I
    mentioned earlier, The Bank Page (not secure i.e.not https: - downloads about
    half way and then stops, leaving me with a grey page. the CNN page also loads
    about half way and then stope and reverts to a page which says cannot load
    this page.

    Very strange. Have either or both got a place to go when you are having
    difficulties reading their web pages. maybe they have something in common.
    The only other thing I can think of is too many pop-up blockers at work or
    your security zones aren't at default under Tools/internet Options.

    Yes it is strange. My security zones are at default. I also tried to use
    firefox and I get the exact same result. I really do not want to re-install
    Vista as it would take a great deal of time. I guess I'll just have to use my
    laptop to visit these sites.
    Thanks for your interest. If anyone has any ideas I'm open to suggestions.

    Have you checked with your ISP to see if they have any restrictions in

    No because my laptop connects as normal. This only affects my desktop
    computer. They both connect through the same router.

    This is Scott and I am having the same problem. Maybe Microsoft does not
    know about this problem. If enough of us speak out something can happen.
    Remember the 60's. I have Windows Vista Home Pro. and the web sites will go
    half way and that's as far as it will gop. Only on some sites.

    Hi Scott
    Yes I am very frustrated. Unless Microsoft reads this newsgroup, how do we
    protest? Signs (as in 60's)???

    Thanks for your input. After working with Microsoft support for a month,
    Everything mysteriously started working normally again. One night I could not
    access the two sites and the next morning they poped right up with no
    problems!! Vista must have some self-healing properties!!!
