Sounds like a spyware issue.

Have you scanned your PC for any bugs/viruses/malware yet?

Only free ones that come to mind are Spybot Search + Destroy and Adaware SE Personal.

There's also online ones you can try - think Panda do one but not 100% sure about that

Are you using Internet Explorer? If yes, have you tried using another browser such as Firefox or Opera?

What kind of sites are you having trouble with? Email sites, secure sites (online banking etc or all different types of sites)?

Also, do you have a firewall? If yes, are you sure the firewall isn't blocking connections to the sites you're having trouble with?

I use Internet Explorer most of the time but for the past I have been using Firefox but the same thing happens.

It's more of forums like Invisionfree and it's main part and just a couple of other forums

Were I would check this thing on Norton?

It's been a while since I used Norton and it's not something I'm likely to do again as I think it's pretty poor so it'll be a bit hard for me to explain where to look..especially if you use a newer version than when I last used it.

It may be an idea to temporarily disable the firewall feature to see if it makes any difference...with Norton, I think all you need to do is right click on it's icon in the sys tray (bottom right of your screen) and click disable Firewall/internet security or something like that.

While it's disabled, see if the problem persists...if not, then the firewall is to blame. If you still have problems, then you need to look elsewhere i.e your connection itself. Do you have dial-up, broadband, cable etc? Do you ever have any problems with download speeds?

Never had problems with my DSL before and it's not the Antivirus either since the problem still happens.

Anti-Virus is different from a Firewall - Firewalls filter and block content which often results in Page Cannot Be Found or Page Cannot Be Displayed error messages

Send a message via ICQ to XTTX Send a message via AIM to XTTX Send a message via Yahoo to XTTX
My 2 suggestions
1. If you have 2 firewalls, uninstall one
2. Check your host files if there was any tampering

Try a-squared to scan for malware.
