Firstly i'm sorry to push this question onto you guys but after googling the issue this site was pretty much the best option that came up. Secondly, i'm not completely tech savvy and i hope i don't come across as too ignorant. The issue - two days ago i discovered i suddenly can't access myspace.com or youtube.com from my desktop pc. It's the weirdest thing. I've never had problems with these sites before now and i can't think of anything i could have done to upset things in such a way. Basically when i type the addresses for both sites the browser (Firefox) takes a while (maybe 30 seconds) to have a think and then gives me a page saying "problem loading page, the connection was reset while the page was loading" i've tried both sites in IE and can't access them that way either. I can't load any embedded youtube videos and i think i may have a problem with imageshack.us as well. Otherwise things are normal. I've cleared my cookies, checked in the browser options to see if the sites were somehow restricted, checked my internet security (trend micro) and have come up with nothing. The strange thing is that i CAN access all these sites from my laptop using the same cable internet account & modem. Again, i'm sorry to come here asking but i'm not sure what else to do, any ideas would be appreciated.
