I have Avira Anti-virus, ZAGG opens for me ...

http://www.colorwarepc.com/ is very slow to load, so you may be timing out.

Yep, it looks that way:

Connect to 66.135.37.188 on port 80 ... ok
Host: www.colorwarepc.com
Read timeout
Line: HTTP/1.1 200 OK
, Size: 17

drklazarus26, I had a similar problem, in the past 3-4 months i haven't been able to connect to Black Viper's Web Site and i still can't, does not matter what browser i use, or what os (XP or 7).

But here's the kicker : if i use Open DNS server addresses in my internet connection properties under networking/tcpip v4/properties/
then i can load that site without problems

Here you can read instructions how to set up your connection to use OpenDNS servers

https://www.opendns.com/start/device/windows-vista

It says you have to register but you don't, you just need to know the addresses (from the above link).

So my guess is that my ISP's dns servers have a problem with that site.

Give OpenDNS a try, maybe it will help.
