I have Windows XP SP3 and all the latest versions of the aforementioned browsers.

Since November 16th, whenever I have tried to access deviantART, it takes an hour to load at least, then looks like this: http://s366.photobucket.com/albums/oo101/P...nt=weirddA1.jpg and I cannot access any of my messages or any other content of any sort. I spoke with a person from their Help Desk, but they insist the problem is with my computer and not their site/server.

Now, the problem is, nothing drastic has changed with my computer for the past three months. I had AdBlockPlus installed and deviantART worked fine, I had SpywareBlaster and SpyBot and AdAware updated, and it worked fine. I had Windows Updates, and it still worked fine.

I have tried clearing my caches numerous times; I've cleared browsing history, and cookies, even. (Should I try clearing passwords, too?) Nothing's worked. I've tried tampering with both MacAfee and Windows Firewall settings. Nothing's worked. I tried releasing/renewing my IP address, which I thought for sure would work, since when I attempted to use a proxy to access the site once, it essentially worked, but even that didn't work.

I am at my wits end, here, and I feel like it has to be a problem on their end because nothing drastic has changed on mine.

System Restore is not an option for me, sorry. So outside of that, can anyone tell me what they think the problem is and how to fix it? Please please please. Thank you very much.

Edit: Quick update. Apparently it's got something to do with the CSS not loading, a devART IT guy I spoke with on Facebook told me that. In addition, this same sort of thing is happening when I try to access TV.com. Another thing I have tried is "ipconfig /flushdns". It didn't do anything, either.

Double check this just in case:

Go to View > Page Style & make sure Basic Page Style is selected.

Nope, it's definitely set to 'Basic'. But thanks anyway. ^_^;

I had the same problem and none of the ideas worked. Was it because of the ISP? It may be the CSS as well.

Well, since my original posting, I've changed networks, and dA works fine so I guess it was the ISP after all. ^^; I hope the problem resolves itself for you soon, if it hasn't already.
