The site is ezboard.com, and I USED to get my computer help there, but i cannot access it, so here I am.

Basically, i cant access the site from the two computers i have at home, which both access the www thru a router, which i think has a firewall.

However, i CAN access the site through a computer i have access to at work, in the greenroom, which isnt firewalled.

I think it could either be Spyware, Viruses (naturally) or the firewall.

Home computer#1: Dell Laptop running WinXP, McAfee security- which hasnt caught anything, AdAware - which hasnt caught anything.

Home Computer#2: Dell PC running WinME, Norton Security, which also hasnt found anything malicious.

Hi there...

What was the error message?

Try to disable the Norton or McAfee security software, then:
Can you resolve the ezboard.com into IP address? Try using ping command, from Start -> Run -> type "cmd" press enter -> from command prompt, type "ping www.ezboard.com", see if your PC can translate it into IP address like
Note: ignore the quotation (") marks when typing the commands.

If the PC can't translate www.ezboard.com into IP address, try checking the contents of your hosts file, located at c:\windows\system32\drivers\etc
Make sure there is no mapping for www.ezboard.com, if any, try to "remark" it, by putting "#" before it.

Alternatively, try typing "" directly into your web browser's. See how it goes.

Cheers :thumbsup:

While you are on the internet, click on tools, internet properties, privacy, sites and see if the ip address or site name is blocked.
