HELP PLEASE: Why don't some sites load up?

Hi, i'm using my laptop at work and some sites dont load up.
Google maps - gets stuck and the message at the bottom is (8 items still to download - or something to that effect)
Rapeed.co.uk
Paypal.

Google maps and paypal used to work but now stopped. Ive updated internet explorer but still nothing (except bbc news now works which didnt).

Any advice would be appreciated with instructions as im not too good with computers.

Thanks

Try using another browser like Firefox or Avant to see if the problem still exists. Avant is not too different from Internet Explorer and is only a small download.

Just tried firefox - exacly the same thing happened so uninstalled it again. Paypal used to work in the past but stopped! Will give Avant a go. Thanks Predikuesi.

Try this too

In Internet Explorer open Tools at the top, then Internet Options. Use the tabs to get to these views below. Make the first look the same. Click the the "Restore avdanced settings" and "Reset" buttons on the second.

I bet that is where the problem lies. I'd talk to 3 about the situation. It looks like the sites are being blocked.

I'll give them a ring. But why would they block google maps (was working last week) and rapeed (a shopfitting company) . Thanks for all the advice. :thumbsup:

Go to Start and Control Panel, then Add / Remove Programs.
If you have upgraded IE8 over IE7, Uninstall IE8 in Control Panel-Add remove Programs. You will go back to IE7 automatically.


There is an automatic uninstall from Microsoft here http://support.microsoft.com/kb/957700#fixit4me

manage to go back to ie 7, still no luck. The laptop has been a bit slow over the last couple on months - think i might have to attempt a format!

Thanks all for the advice
