Internet Explorer Won't Load Netflix.com

  1. Every time I try to go to netflix.com my computer flashes back and forth between my homepage and netflix. It says "website found. waiting for reply..." and then "connecting to site 208.75.79.17" this goes on for 5 minutes, then goes to a netflix screen then goes to a screen that says to set my computer to allow cookies. I've set it so that my computer allows all cookies but that didn't help either. This is the only website that I've found to do this and it just started about a week ago. I also tried a system restore and it still didn't work. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    It sounds like the website is having problems. One way to check it is to ping it.

    Click start>run type cmd click ok this will open up command prompt then type ping www.netfix.com
    And see if you get a reply back, let me know.
