    I don't know if it's related, but since sp2, there are some sites that won't load in ie, and start some kind of rapid clicking sound, and the browser has to be forced off with taskmanager

    firefox for now seems to be fine with the site

    one in particular is;

    http://www.nytimes.com

    anyone hear anthing about this?

    perris - I can get to nytimes.com with my SP2 system (using IE) - however the same question came up on another forum using a different example and I could not get to that example on my SP2 system. I feel pretty sure it has to do with IE and SP2 as I can get to that otehr site on my SP1 system???:confused:

    I don't have SP2 in yet but have heard of this happening.

    Have you tried with the new pop-up blocker disabled in IE. see if you can get there then?

    IE/tools menu/pop-up blocker

    You may have to add the site to the "allowed sites" in pop-up blocker or trusted sites in IE.

    I seen an article on this at microsoft just can't find it now.

    ya, that's my first assumption...I disabled the pop up stopper immediately and still had the problem.

    however, I've not had it since a reboot, so we'll see

    yep I do think you have to reboot I found the link about the pop-up blocker and the sound.

    (When you install SP2, Pop-up Blocker is turned on in Internet Explorer and set to the medium setting, which means it will block most automatic pop-ups. The default settings for the pop-up blocker allow you to see pop-ups that are opened when you click a link or button on a Web site. Pop-up Blocker will also play a sound and show the Information Bar when a pop-up is blocked. You can adjust these settings so that Pop-up Blocker works the way you want it to.)

    well, I think I got it, but I won't know for a few days;

    I enabled the pop up stopper in ie, then I went to options and allowed the website.

    that seems to have done the trick...we'll see

    nope, that didn't work either...I tried adding the site to all exclude lists...no luck so far with any of my efforts

    That site loaded fine for me. Odd you're experiencing problems with it.

    You could add a site to the block list (see if the sound's the same)

    Maybe check your "host file" or "Internet properties/security/restricted sites"
    see if the site was added there for some reason.

    Did you add the site to "Internet properties/security/trusted sites" to see if that helped.

    Check your firewall see if it's blocking the site now.
    (I just had an update for my firewall lastweek then nero updates was being blocked, disabled the firewall and went right to updates)
    I ended up having to create a rule to get there.

    I think I have the add server on a block list, I've removed it from the block list...this seems to have done the trick for now..I'll post back when I'm sure
