Last week I noticed I couldn't access a specific website from my home computer. It's a car enthusiast website, www.mymonte.com

When I first noticed the problem, I was on dial-up and I thought that the site was simply down. However I accessed the site no problem from another computer so that turns out to not be the case. A few days ago I upgraded to DSL, but the problem seems to have carried over since I still cannot access the site.

Thanks in advance

By "could not access" what do you mean? Is there a password/registration error? Do you get any specific error messages returned from your browser? Have you tried accessing this site using another browser, such as Opera or Firefox?
Regards,
John

Whereof one cannot speak, thereof one should be silent.

And I don't have any other web browsers other than IE. I also found that I couldn't ping the website in question thru command prompt.

Did Ad-Aware or BitDefender find anything?
Do you have a resident anti virus installed?

You could visit this link.

Anyone else have any ideas?

No, Ad-Aware didn't find anything neither have my multiple online virus scans. I do not have a resident virus scanner installed.

Wel you need a resident anti virus and a firewall (if you do not have one of those eiether.
Read all of the information in the link I gave you above. And apply it.

Maybe you should consider posting a Highjack This Log. This link will take you to a detailed tutorial on how to post a log.

Good Luck! :thumbsup:

How to Post a Highjack This Log

Just please keep in mind that all Highjack This Team Members are volunteers. One must practice a little patience, when waiting for help. I promise you though that they will get to you as soon as they are able.

And above all do not attempt to work on your log yourself. And only take the advice from an official HJT Team Member. Which will show under thier name and avatar.

One more thing. Do not reply to your own post. As the Team keeps an eye out for zero replies. If they see a reply they will assume that someone is already helping you out. Then I'm afraid that you may get lost in the shuffle.
