    Whenever I try to go to Newgrounds.com, I'll get an error: Can't find this page/ this page does not exist! (same with Clockcrew.cc, witch shares servers with Newgrounds.) It's the same on both IE and firefox. This started 3 days ago, and I've heard it works for other people elsewhere.

    :confused:

    Try accessing the site by the IP address instead of the DNS name

    Are you able to ping the site?

    it's possible your ISP has blocked access to those sites from some reason
    usally such a block will be done from the dns servers,so try switching to the opendns
    servers , http://www.opendns.com

    Also check your hosts file on your PC and make sure that the site isn't listed as a blocked site. A quick google search should tell you exactly how to do this.

    I think you're mistaken. Please configure the OpenDNS servers in your computer, as previously recommended, and let us know what happens. It will take less time to test it this way then to guess what to try next without first knowing what the results of this particular test are.

    Thanks!

    You misunderstand, I really tried all your tips, with no result! On the Clockcrew forums, some members said they were experiencing the same, (posting from other computers than they would normally do) and they were from certain countries.
