At first we thought the issue was toward one user. but come to find out everyone on the domain cannot see the site the way they are suppose to. its coming up as text.  

The antivirus we use is Trend micro advanced.

any ideas as to what could be blocking the site from fully coming up.

Clear all temporary Internet files (cache)

What browser are you using?

I ran ccleaner and cleared everything in internet explorer. I tried IE, Chrome and Mozilla and still the same thing. I went to another PC on the network and same thing. I added the url to the antivirus trusted list and nothing.

Is it accessing the site via http or https?

Try adding the site to IE's Trusted Sites.

What about logging into that computer with the local administrator account.  Can you access the site correctly that way?

Ok.  I'll take a bet that this is being caused by the MTU setting on your firewall/router.

It most likely is set to the default of 1500.  Try changing it to 1280 instead.

Yes, you can switch to manual and set to 1280.  MTU controls TCP Packet size.  Some web sites have coding which works better on a smaller packet size.  

It won't hurt anything for you to change the setting, it can always be changed back.

Give it a try.

FYI, here's someone else's experience:
http://www.secretweaponlabs.com/2009/09/getting-in-to-linkedin-how-to-fix-non-loading-linkedin-com/

They actually lowered MTU to 1000, but that may be too low for overall performance.

The setting can also be changed at the workstation level:

Great!  So the MTU change essentially fixed the problem?

Ahhh, very strange.  If you enable Secure Browsing in your LinkedIn profile, then it should automatically switch over to https -- bad coding/configuration on their part.

Glad you got it worked out though.

I found the fix for the issue. We have trend micro advanced on the network and I had to add a few trusted url's.
