ESPN3 has stopped loading correctly. There should be a large clickable picture at the top of the screen as well as a list of 'featured events' down the right side that are not appearing. The 'remote access', 'watch now', 'upcoming' and 'replay' buttons do not work, they are clickable but nothing happens when I click them.
I am running Windows 7. I have the same result regardless of browser. The site loads properly on my laptop (connected wirelessly) but not on my desktop. I have updated everything I can think of, cleared caches and cookies, reset the router, reset internet settings, disabled add-ons, ran Firefox in safe mode, tried a different user profile and nothing has worked. Help please!
Here is a pic of how the site is appearing for me.

I think your major determining factors here would be 1) your Adobe Flash Player and 2) your video card's drivers. Have you updated both of those?

Ryan-
Yes, I uninstalled and reinstalled Flash and checked my video card drivers both through Windows' device manager and through the manufacturer's website. Thanks for the suggestions!

While thinking about this, I remembered that I did some tinkering with the hosts file a little while back (I know, I know...). I goofed some stuff up and wound up having to download and run a Microsoft hosts file fix. Pretty sure my current problem started around that time, could this be due to a bad hosts file entry or something?

YES! It was the hosts file! Whatever new hosts file I downloaded to correct my goofup contained a bunch of espn and go.com sites. Took them out and the site loads properly. Mods can lock/delete this thread.
