    This is strange. A couple of weeks ago I found I could load all the pages at DeviantART except for the ones prefixed www. I get the generic "This page cannot be displayed".

    If I enter using "browse.deviantart.com" I can use the dropdown, go to sub-categories etc. But, I can't view an individuals entry, go to the main page or login.

    It means, among other things, that I can't download from DeviantART or any of the enumerable sites that link to it.

    DSL, XP SP2 and IE6.

    TIA, Dale

    Solved! It was Spybot>Advanced Mode>Tools>Hosts File. www.deviantart.com must have been added in an update. Deleted. Works.
