Hello Paulduberry,

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. Reset the Maximum Transmission Unit in the registry

5a. If you are using Internet Explorer, check if the site is restricted or blocked.  Go to Tools > Internet Options > Security. Highlight Restricted Sites and see if the blocked site is located there.

5b. Also under Content tab > Content Advisor, check if the site is restricted there. Remove it.

5c. Also, under Security tab, add the website to your trusted zone.

6. Check if antispyware, antivirus, or firewall is blocking the website. Disable these programs one by one.

Hope this helps!

Are you using Firefox 2?  Firefox 2 does not restrict content based on Internet Security.  Step 5 of war1's response should address this.

Tried all steps from War1. Am using FIrefox 2.0. All sites come up in Firefox. Can't display any sites in IE. Maybe I should uninstall McAfee? Don't think there's a way to just disable it without uninstalling.

Uninstalled McAfee and IE started to work. Wonder why it was only affeecting IE and not Firefox. Piece of crap!

Paulduberry, glad you found the source of the problem.  The problem may be with McAfee site advisor blocking your internet access.
