    Is there a reason why one particular web page could not be loaded from a specific computer?

    I am trying to connect to www.bloomberg.com on my machine at work. I get the error message in the subject. I can surf around to anywhere else I like except there. And this means no other pages for that site. Like www.bloomberg.com/bbn/.

    I have gone to other computer in my office and been able to connect with no problem. I have also cleared the browser cache and history. I have checked the security settings to find if it was restricted. I've also checked my content advisor to see if it was disabled. None of this has yet worked.

    I am using IE 5.5 on Win 98 SE.


    Any thoughts on this?

    Thanks,

    Keith

    That page uses java. Check your java settings. Check to make sure that the virtual machine is current.

    Are you running any sort of adblocker?

    Check your proxy settings. Are you using a proxy? If is, try turning it off.

    On your advance internet options, check to see if the JIT is enabled.

    Also, check your hosts file. To check it, do a search on your computer for hosts

    There is not an extension on the one you want. When you find it, open it up and see if there are any entries that might reference that website.

    Well, I broke down and took the time to install IE6. Everything seems to work fine now. Sorry I couldn't provide any real insight into this problem. Thank you for the advice though. Hopefully someone will get a chance to use it.

    Glad you got it fixed. Maybe somethign was broken inside of it and installing IE 6 fixed it.
