Have not been able to figure this one out. It's a small problem, but any suggestions would be appreciated.

Recently, I have not been able to bring up the Tech bargains web site on my system ( http://www.techbargains.com/ ). I get the standard "This Page Cannot Be Displayed." My friend, who has the same ISP can, as can my father, so I know it's something on my end, which must have began in the last month or so.

I have tweaked my Internet Options security settings to the default level, and even tried it at the lowest level. I have disabled my firewall (Tiny) and SpyWareBlaster, but the page still does not come up. I do not have any sites placed in the restricted zone, and I am the only person who uses this computer. Also, I have tried it using different search engines to rule out a dead link. I also a different browser, which runs directly from a floppy disc ( http://www.offbyone.com/ ) witht the same results.

The strange thing is that I can can every other site I try (so-far) without any problems.

I am using IE6 and WinXP

Any ideas ??

PS - For those who read this and may not be familiar with the Tech bargain site, it's worth a book-mark as far as prices go

Hi, and thanks -

Yes, I cleaned everything out using Disk Clean-Up, IWiper, Norton and the Internet Options Utility.

Hmmm...... a mystery.

The sad part is Techbargins is one of my favorite sites. (except for this one :D )

Thanks to all who replied!

Well, here's where I am at. Sort of solved, but I am not sure why.

DEL - your link worked. Thank-you. I saved it, and shall use it to access the site. I did try URL in Google W/O the "WWW." At first it did not work. When I copied & Pasted your link into the address bar, it worked fine. The strange part, which I don't understand, is this:

DEL'S is the only link on this thread that worked, including the ones I posted. When I typed in "Tech Bargains" in Google, I get a couple of links to the site which don't work. When I tried the link in my Favorites folder (that I have used many times in the past) it won't work. When I have sent the same link to a friend, it worked for him.

I checked my Host file, and found nothing about TechBargains.com, and there is nothing in the restricted area under Internet Options at all.

Well, not the biggest problem in TSG and I am able to get to the site once again. So, again thanks.
