User Profile Blocking Access to a certain website

There is a user in my office who needs access to a website. The site has been added to the "favorites bar" in IE. The user had access to this site last month and now when attempting to access site they recieve the error message "Internet Explorer cannot display the Webpage" When I log on as a different user, and user the same shortcut from the other users favorites the Web page opens normally.

I believe that this is a profile problem but unsure of how to address it. I don't want to delete the user profile.

The Machine is a Dell E6400 with Windows 7 and Office 2010, Internet Explorer 8

I believe that it is user related, I can log on as a different user and access the website just fine.

Hello,

That might be a User Profile issue - if it's corrupted or you might want to check his/her Windows Hosts File C:\windows\system32\drivers\etc\ or %systemroot%\system32\drivers\etc\ . You may edit the Hosts File or reset it to the default setting.

I can use the username/password on another PC and access the website just fine. So the problem is with the local PC. I have removed cookies and clean out the temp files.
