I have been experiencing issues where I have not been able to connect to a couple of sites in IE8. It will go from working fine to an almost instant stop where the following is displayed.

"Internet Explorer cannot display the webpage....Diagnose Connection problems"

It first started with Geekzone and Metservice and now Btscene.eu (all other sites are fine)

My gut feeling is that it must be a firewall/security issue but I cannot find any of the logs listing an issue.

Upon doing a reset settings of IE8 and a restart it will come right even though I have not changed any settings.
I have never been one to accept resetting/restarting as a valid solution.

Any searches including Geekzone and Metservice lead to a Snowstorm virus a couple of years ago.

Great site by the way, finally joied up after months of looking around.

Rather find a solution instead of switching back to Firefox or move to Chrome

Any ideas?

Perhaps you should put a bit more information there - what ISP are you using, what DNS are you using, are using a proxy or VPN?

Hadn't really thought of it being a network issue as all other international and local sites work fine.
Broadband via Telecom and an automated DNS via a netgear router.
