Problem opening webpage

Do you know why I can't open this page below?
http://www.versacoretemplates.com/

I can open it in every computer except for one, and I can't figure out why this page cannot be opened in that particular computer. All the IE browser security settings are the same.

Greetings JohnLucio !

Test if you can open the webpage with another browser, like Firefox
http://www.getfirefox.com

1. Clear your DNS cache.  Go to Start > Run and type CMD
and hit OK.
At the command prompt, type ipconfig /flushDNS
and hit OK.

2. Clear your cache.  Go to Tools > Internet Options > General tab.  Under Temporary Internet Files, click "Delete Files" button. Also click "Delete Cookies" button. Click OK.

3. If no joy, check if your PC is blocking the site.  Do a search for HOSTS file and open it with an editor like Notepad. Delete any line that has the blocked site in it.

HOSTS file is located in
Windows XP      =      C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM32\DRIVERS\ETC
Windows 2K     =     C:\WINNT\SYSTEM32\DRIVERS\ETC
Win 98/ME     =     C:\WINDOWS

It is a hidden file. Go to any folder and select Tools > Folders Options > View. Check "Show hidden files and folders". Click OK.

4. If you are using Internet Explorer, check if the site is restricted or blocked.  Go to Tools > Internet Options > Security. Hightlight Restricted Sites and see if the blocked site is located there.

Also under Content tab > Content Advisor, check if the site is restricted there. Remove it.

Also, under Security tab, add the website to your trusted zone.

5. Check if antispyware, antivirus, or firewall is blocking the website.

Hope this helps, war1

opens fine with me.....
what's the error you get while trying to visit the page?

try resetting IE default settings and security levels in IE and add the site in the Trusted Zones
also make sure that your security suite is not blocking anything

I don't get any error, SheharyaarSaahil. The page just hangs when trying to open, maybe I'll hear the audio, but that's about it. It just gets stuck trying to open the page.

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

So I've been following your input, SheharyaarSaahil, and now it's loading on that one computer--but only finally after several long minutes! Something is making it very difficult for the info on the page to finally trickle down. Perhaps I should run a scan for Addware/Spyware? My Spysweeper registration has expired. Do you know of a decent free anti-spyware software I can use?
