When I try to log into a ORKUT account on my PC, explorer (Mozilla Firefox 2.0, IE6, IE7) displays "Redirecting ....." on Title Bar and a blank page. But on my friend's computer It opens smoothly.

I would like to add that when i go through proxy, it works fine.

is your friend using the same ISP as yours?
the reason i ask this, is because different ISP treat orkut differently.
e.g. my ISP simply blocks it! :)
quite possible that your ISP has set the access to Orkut to be allowed only via proxy

or if its your home system, did orkut ever worked before?

Yes I run a Internet Cafe. About 1 month ago there was no problem with Orkut Account. Even now one PC has no problem with ORKUT. As far as Security softs are concerned - I have Avast 4.8 (free/Home Ed.) Anti-virus. I have tried Adware 2008, SuperAntiSpyware, etc.

OS - Windows Vista/ 2000 / XP.

an internet cafe.....so that means we are talking about many workgroup computers here which cannot access Orkut without using a proxy server except one machine which is working fine.....right?
is there a router there which is being used for the internet access?
