I'm using a:
There is one site that I go to that depends on being able to load a 'companion ad site', in order for it's
page to load properly(java applet). I never had any problems with it until a few weeks ago. I haven't added anything that should deny me access to the site. It's a game loading (not a download) 'ad page' on the Pogo game site. I have allowed all cookies, and removed my ZA firewall.
Here is the error...res://C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM\SHDOCLC.DLL/navcancl.htm#http://ad.doubleclick.net/adi/pogo.domino.pogo/[br]misc_500;dcopt=ist;kw=am53;ptile=1;sz=500x350;ord=973013
By looking at this URL, can anyone tell where the failure lies? Is it the 'ad.doubleclick.net? or the .../pogo.dominoe.pogo/...?
One thing I wondered about is that, one time, I 'pinged' the ad.doubleclick.net (188.8.131.52) site and all four packets failed. Timed out. Is it possible that their server/firewall, responded to my 'ping' request by blocking me?
This computer makes a wireless connection thru a Linksys router to the cable modem. I can connect successfully to the site from the main computer, but, not this one.
I have previously used SpywareBlaster and it's hosts file, plus I've incorporated SpyBot's Hosts file into mine.
Now, I have cleared the Hosts file leaving 127.0.0.0 localhost.
Still the error comes up. I have turned off SpywareBlaster and disabled it. No popup blockers are turned on.
I have been to Add/Remove and ran the IE repair then 'restarted'. No joy.Anybody have any ideas as to how to go about clearing this?
I understand this to be Windows way of saying it cannot connect to that page. So, does that mean, it's a router port thing? Could they be blocking me? Is it possible, I'm blocking them?
Thank you for any leads on which direction to take.
