    I thought you guys might have an answer for this as its seems to point to XP as the guilty party.

    My sister & friends have some websites they run. They live in different continents. Sometimes the websites dont open for my sister but her friends overseas are fine.

    she just asked me for help. We're both here in the same house. They open for me on my PC but not on her PC. She's on Internet explorer. We have deleted the cache & cookies. Still no response. This issue is intermitent. AND without any input from her in the past, the website will start opening again without any PC/XP tweeking.

    She has AVG & LooknStop Firewall. I cannot see anything that might restrict access in those programs. Disabling AVG doesn't change things.

    I'm stumped. But then again I'm just an winXP user, not an XP enthusiast. Any clues?
