  1. What has happend (as far as I know) for some reason I cant veiw/go to some websites. Two of them are hotmail, and google, I have tried both Mozilla, and Microsoft internet explorer. When I do attempt to go to one of these websites, all that happens is, I get redirected to a search engine, or I get the page cannot be displayed thing. How ever what I find really weird/hard to understand, is that it only happens here and there (I have had a freind to websites from a diffrent computer, so I am reasonably shure that there not down). I was wondering if anyone else has had a like problem, or has an idea how to fix it.... btw I use windows XP

    Thanks in advance

    Its probably some spyware or adware thats doing this. Try to use some anti-spyware programs such as Ad-aware or Sypbot.

    I was messing around with some more stuff and I realized that none of the computers on my network could get to these sites... any ideas?

    See if there is a firmware update for your router, if you have one.
    If you are using AOL, set your MTU to 1400.
