I have used this page for a long time. It's Stan Newman's daily crossword page. Can anyone tell me how to stop it being blocked? Thanks Zaphod

That would require knowing what message you get when you go there and what security software you are running. Windows 7 itself is not going to block web sites.

says. When a website causes a failure or crash, Internet Explorer attempts to restore the site. It stops after two tries to avoid an endless loop. I have Norton 360 and mcafey

Running two AV programs at the same time can cause serious problems, and McAfee is one of the worst security suites (I find Norton to be problematic too), please remove McAfee with the McAfee Removal Tool and then keep Norton for the time being.

Which IE version are you running?

Could you please post the web address (URL) to the web page your trying to access?

The site seems to work fine for me, do you run any internet security suites?

Have you removed McAfee yet? What IE version are you running?
