Web pages do not display properly with either IE7 or Firefox. I can connect to any website, but part of the page, will not display. I must have deleted something. Any suggestions out there? I'm using XP Professional, SP2. Had recently installed SP3 but uninstalled it as I thought maybe that caused the problem, but there was no change. I have attached a couple of screen shots to illustrate the issue I am having.

Edit: Moved topic from XP to the more appropriate forum. ~ Animal

Usually when you see a blocked connection/cannot display such as the ones in your screenshots, it means that your Hosts file is blocking connections to flashy ads, web bugs, hijackers, etc...(the Hertz page loads the same way for me as well). The two entries in particular at the Hertz site that are being blocked are:


Ads, such as those, can be a potential risk to someones computer simply by the connection being made to them while surfing the net . More detailed reading about what a Hosts file is & what it does can be found here:
