    Dear Geniuses,
    My Internet connection is fine.
    Every other website I can think of will load, except MySpace won't. It just won't come up. Theres an active result listed in google, and I can open it from the cache. It also works if I use anonymouse.com
    I IMed many friends, and all of them could access MySpace.
    However, I just can't load it.
    I don't think it has been blocked, though if it has I can remove the block, as I am a computer administrator
    Please, somewhere out there must be someone who can help. :( :( :(
    Eternal Gratitude,
    Mikey

    it might be ion your restricted zones on IE or in hosts file

    restricted zone

    open IE
    tools
    internet options
    secruity tab
    restricted sites
    sites button

    is it listed there

    OR

    with windows explorer
    windows>
    system32>
    drivers>
    etc>

    then open the hosts file with notepad - you may need to change the filetypes
    see if at the bottom you have it listed against 127.0.0.1 - if so remove the line and then save - DO NOT SAVE AS - just save it will keep the same format and extension
