    On some websites i have problems with my security settings and ive spent hours trying to figure it out with no luck. For example...some websites that everyone else can see...i cant, i get the page cannot be displayed errot. Another thing is on some websites (for example ebay) i click on a link and get the same problem, or i cant see some items like a hits counter or something...i think its my firewall in my router...and i cant figure out how to disable it/lower the security level...anyone got an idea?

    You could try & Rename your HOSTS File

    have a look at the HOSTS file
    & just rename it to something like HOSTS.bak then try it

    that's HOSTS no extention
    Windows 95/98/Me c:\windows\hosts

    & here

    Windows NT/2000/XP Pro c:\winnt\system32\drivers\etc\hosts
    (you may need administrator access for Windows NT/2000/XP)

    then reboot you may not need to but do so

    Good luck
