View Full Version : ACCESS TO WEB SITE

14-10-2001, 01:00 PM
When I go to one of my favourite web sites, lufc.com, just after the page opens up it drops out to a white screen with a .gif file in the top left corner. I can't get past this. (Copy of file attached) I have had no trouble with this site until the last week or so, and I know the problem is at my end, as a friend accessed the site as a check and had no problems. Any help would be appreciated. Regards, Keith Booth.

It's just a dead link.

Delete it from your favorites, find your page on the net again and add to your favorites again, or make a new link on your links bar.

Nope, this site works at my end. Tried disabling zonealarm or NIS?

The site is accesible, but the link you gave is a dead link.

Try clearing your temporary internet files (cache) from Tools->Internet Options in IE

Many thanks to those who have replied to my call for help.
To K.O. : The site was not on my favourites list, or shown as a link. When I go to the page, it loads then up comes the white screen with the words 'enter website' top left, and then it freezes, so I can't make a new link.
To Dylan C. : Disabled Zonealarm. No change. What's NIS?
To Ryan O'C : The only temp internet files I have are Content IE5 with desktop.ini file. Have emptied my disk cache. No change.

I am running Netscape Communicator 4.7 on Win98, with an Intel 668MHz processor.
The last time I successfully entered the site was about a week ago. It now has a TV page. To use this the instructions told me I needed me to download Windows Media player. This I did, but haven't been able to get on since. I can't see how this could be relevant, but.........

This sounds like the problem I had (see web site).
XTRA solved mine by suggesting I download IE6 from Microsoft. Daft really because I was already using IE6 off a locally supplied CD and had tried reinstalling it. Anyway I took their advice (be ready to spend nearly 2 hours downloading it)
The download worked. I have no problems now.
The site they gave me was www.microsoft.com/ie You will be redirected from this site to another (I forget its name). Go ahead. I didn't believe that this would cure my problem. It did.

That is strange, there is nothing unusual about that site.
Try going direct to the main page which is probably what you want anyway.

Geez people, the original ppost was Oct 14 2001 - no wonder the problem isn't manifesting itself at the moment.

I didn't notice that, good spotting.
How did that get reposted?

Someone does a search. Reads a post and decides to reply to it. If the post is over a month old there's a warning message to that effect, but nothign to actually stop you reply to an old message.
