    I have tried using netscap and firefox with no luck.

    My privacy setting is set to medium and i ahve turned off my firewall and security system

    please help!

    Have you made any changes to your computer recently?
    This could be new software/hardware etc.

    the pc is used by the family and i dont use it much.

    i rang my isp and they asked my to install internet explorer

    i re-formated the pc and i have the same problem

    i have also tryed connecting the cable modem directly to my laptop which i have two spyware adware softwares running as well as macafee security suite, same problem.

    I am putting the fault on the internet connection know and will contact the isp in the morning but what could be causing this?

    What OS do you have (i.e. Windows 98/ME/XP etc.etc.). Also, open Internet Explorer and click "Help" then "About Internet Explorer". What does it list as your Cipher Strength? Anything less than 128-bit will not work for about 95% of sites that use secure connections. You can download it from here . And if that's not the case, try disabling mcafee security suite and see if that solves the issue. I know you said you did a format / reinstall but not sure if you installed that before trying to connect to the internet. Maybe some more ideas later.

    after trying everything to resolve this from sources from the internet and microsoft site i had 1 hour chat with a technical person from my isp, who seem'd to be reading off microsoft's site! as i had tried everything he suggested.

    Upon my fustration he talked to a technical manager and discovered the fault was at there end!

    They estimated it to be fixed within 48-72 hours. Infact it was ok after 2 hours.

    Was very pleased but a right shamble with the isp.
