At home, we have three computers hooked up to an Ethernet network: two desktops and a laptop. They can all access a broadband Internet connection through a high-speed router, and the two desktops, at least, run Windows XP. The router has a firewall and all the computers are runnings some type of Norton Anti-Virus. On my computer, I’ve been browsing the Web without problems, but today, when I tried to access a web site which had worked fine before, I got the message “401 The web site is blocked by administrator.” (The web site in question is http://www.ebaumsworld.com, in case you’re interested.) Problem is, I’m the administrator of my computer. Recently I downloaded Steam (to play Counter-Strike), Gamespy Arcade (for everything else), and WinMX (to share music I create at my karaoke machine), and I’m wondering if one of these changed Internet Explorer settings somehow.
Anyone have any ideas? Because I’m baffled.
