Thread: Blocked website

    Default Blocked website

    I am unable to access www.equifax.com using my Vista Ultimate SP1 system.
    Both IE7 and Firefox are unable to connect. I am running Norton Internet
    Security 2008. No other sites I have tried to access are blocked. I have
    checked for restricted sites in IE settings and have disabled all NIS
    protection. Parental controls are not turned on. I am able to access the
    site using two other systems on my network that are running XP SP2 with NIS
    2008. Any ideas what is blocking this site?

    Have you checked the "hosts" file?

    C:\Windows\System32\drivers\etc

    IE uses it, but I'm not sure if Firefox does. It can be used
    to return the loopback address for certain lookups, maybe
    equifax is in there with 127.0.0.1 as the IP address. If it
    is, remove it (you may have to scroll down to see all entries
    in this file).

    Are there any proxy servers involved? Some web filter may
    be inserted between your browser and the ISP (as a proxy)
    and be malfunctioning or misconfigured.

    Oh, and in addition to my other post in this thread, you
    may want to confirm that your DNS server setting is set
    for the correct server. Bad guys have been known to
    change this to one they control the data of - just like the
    hosts file, they provide a wrong number in return for
    a lookup and then can "spoof" the site you intended to
    reach at this new fraudulent IP address.

    Not too helpful I'm afraid, but you asked for ideas.

    Working fine here under Vista Business SP1 with IE7.

    And before Paul Montgomery replies to this response with the same "So
    can the OP using two other computers on the network. He wants to know
    why HIS computer can't.", yes, I know. But the implication from the OP
    is that it may be somehow related to Vista SP1, so this post is only
    intended to indicate that it doesn't appear to be Vista SP1's fault.

    Regards,

    (a different) Dave
