    I have added a site to my "trusted sites" list in Internet Explorer:
    However I cannot get the site to load at all.
    I keep getting the error message:
    Internet Explorer cannot display the webpage
    I have tried over and over to find the problem.
    I can get the site: http://www.bravenet.net to load, but most of the links on that site are to a bravenet.com site, including the contact us information.
    I would ask them (Bravenet) to help me, but I cannot get to their help or contact files.
    When I try to go from Google to bravenet.com I get an error box with the message:
    The current web page is trying to open a site in your trusted sites list.
    Do you want to allow this?
    Current site: http://www.google.com
    Trusted site: http://www.bravenet.com
    Yes No
    Warning: Allowing this can expose your computer to security risks. If you don't trust the current Web Page, choose No.
    When I answer Yes, I still get the error message:
    Internet Explorer cannot display the webpage.
    Do I have some settings incorrect in my security settings somewhere.
    Mostly, I have not had any problems viewing the sites I want to see.
    I do have one other site that is a problem in the same way.
    It also is listed in my trusted sites:

    What is the point of adding a site to your trusted sites when it doesn't allow the site when you say yes?
    I am totally confused on this issue.
    ADDITIONAL NOTE: I have also tried to load the site in Firefox and Netscape. I get the same error messages in both browsers.
    Please give me guidance.
    Thank you
