    I have been using PayPal when paying for items I won on ebay without any problem until a few days ago. When I try to go to the website "www.paypal.com" I get a message that says "cannot connect". This is when I use Mozilla Foxfire. When I use Internet Explorer I get a message that says "this page cannot be displayed". I have no problem logging on to any other website. Also, when I use my wife's laptop I can easily logon to PayPal as well with another computer I used. I had a spyware program called SpyStopper that I thought was causing the problem so I uninstalled it but that did not help. I called PayPal and explained the problem but they said that other people has been logging on and that the problem must be with my computer. I uninstalled other programs that I had installed since the last time I made a payment using PayPal but they were not the cause of not being able to logon. Any help would be appreciated.
