Question Wont allow sites that require a log in
I have windows XP and Ive tried using both Firefox and Explorer. If I try to go to a website that requires a log in, it says 'cannot display web page'. Example; yahoo will load fine, but logging into yahoo mail brings up the error message.
I do not have a Proxy server, I have taken my computer to two tech places and had them look at it. both said there was nothing wrong.

If no joy, open a command prompt and enter the following command and hit enter key. Restart the PC.

netsh winsock reset
