Only thing we did to the comp was download a firewall (ZoneAlarm). Any suggestions? Will switching to Chrome help? Sorry for the questions but we are just looking for help here. Much thanks.
Sometimes a virus will prevent you from visiting various sites.
The other instruction is to clear any sites that may be blocked.
You may also want to try to temporarily disable your firewall and antivirus and see if that helps.
