Hi everybody and good evening,

It's been a year I'm running Windows 10 Pro x64.

No problems at all until two days ago.

Well, usually it happens on the Internet when searching for websites in general.

I received the following message: "HTTP 403 forbidden" and something like "you're not allowed to see the webpage".

So, I hope you'll be helping me, in the past I've always had the correct answer from the forum.

Thanks in advance, please let me know if a solution is available.

greysmouth BO IT.

Could you offer a few examples of URLs you're trying to load that have given you that message?

 

Also, does the same URL work just fine under another browser on your own machine?

Hi, yes as stated maybe you could post the url's of some of the sites, the message IE11 gives is:-

 

The website declined to show this webpage, the IE title bar should say 403 Forbidden.

 

Typically this effects all browsers, if it is a restricted site there is not much you can do about it, that's why we want to see the url's if it is restricted to you, should be also for us.

 

One mention is the latest Malwarebytes version runs for 14 days as a full version, some users have reported site restrictions applying before reverting to the free. Maybe some creative marketing trying to scare you, that without it, you would be going to undesirable sites.

Hi and thanks to everyone.

What I said happened calling the HP Support website...

I had no other occasion to visit that site until now, so actually I don't know if problem still exists.

I'll let you know in a short time.

Cheers, greysmouth BO IT.

Hi.

Well, I tried again the HP Support website, but the SmartFriend choice.

So I attached the related photo.

Now I'm going to run another browser and soon I'll be back.

Regards,

greysmouth BO IT.

Nothing weird there.  The URL http://www.hp.com/hpsupport is not valid and will give a 403 error (and does) on any browser you use to attempt to access it.  I get exactly the same error in Firefox, Chrome, and Edge.

 

By contrast, the valid URL, https://support.hp.com, lands you directly on the HP support page to start searching for what you need.
