I haven't been able to access the following sites on my laptop. Descriptions of the problems is included.
-Tumblr (Since October of 2009)
Cant access the site on my laptop. I can on my desktop though.
-Myspace (Since June of 2009)
I cant access the site. With a proxy yes. I crashed my desktop previously by use of a proxy so I really would like to not use one again.
-Facebook (Since Mid-January of 2009)
My inability to access face book has been a reoccurring cyclical problem for me, and it tends to dissapear for three weeks, then reappear for one. This problem was present on my desktop before I got my laptop.
My laptop is a HP Pavilion dv6 with Windows Vista Home Premium 64 bit.
My desktop is Windows XP (crashed twice)
I am not an obsessive user of the sites listed above. I use them to keep in contact with family and old friends.
I am the administrator on my laptop, and the only one who uses it.
My virus protection software is the newest version of Norton.
YES I have tried deleting the cache and cookies in my browsers, turning off the firewall, and tried command prompt and received no error messages. There are no blocked sites on my laptop.
I have tried Google Chrome, Safari, IE 7&8, and Firefox. NOTHING WORKS.
The error message that I receive is either unknown error, or "[insert browser] cannot access this webpage]".
Maybe someone can finally help me, I have read, and tried all of the advice given for similar topics, and since it hasn't worked, I thought it would be best to post my own thread and see if someone can unravel the mystery.
ANY HELP IS GREATLY APPRECIATED.
