Hi,

 

I have a PC with Windows 10. There's a particular website I'm trying to access, but I always get this error:

 

"Your Internet access is blocked

 
Firewall or antivirus software may have blocked the connection.
Try:
Checking the connection
Checking firewall and antivirus configurations
ERR_NETWORK_ACCESS_DENIED
HIDE DETAILS
Check your Internet connection
Check any cables and reboot any routers, modems, or other network devices you may be using.
Allow Chrome to access the network in your firewall or antivirus settings.
If it is already listed as a program allowed to access the network, try removing it from the list and adding it again."
 
I get a similar message with all browsers. The website works fine on my Dad's computer which is on the same home network. I was using a different antivirus program and firewall to him, so I changed them to being the same, but that didn't make any difference. I can't think what else to try. Please can someone advise how to get the website to work on my computer?
 
Thank you,
Joe

If you are using Windows Firewall reset it. Open an elevated command prompt and type:

netsh advfirewall reset

Check your HOSTS file to make sure that site is not blocked.

 

Use OpenDNS servers. Flush your DNS cache after changing to OpenDNS. It shouldn't make a difference if your on the same network as your dad but give it a try. You can always set it back to automatic.

Thank you, JohnC_21. Resetting Windows Firewall fixed the problem.
