XP home Website Issue

By mcoya ·
For some reason i cannot access some website on my XP home pc. Does anybody know of any good troubleshooting techniques for website issues. I know the websited exist, and it's not a DNS issue. The websites are timing out before i get them.

Yes, an answer here would be very nice considering that i can not connect to www.techrepublic.com from my home XP system. Tech support says that they have no idea what the problem could be. They suggest that you delete all cookies and try again. That did not work for me. You might want to try that.

What I have found to be the main problem with website loading is contingent upon my security policies. Depending on the website you want to visit, they may need to load something to your computer to come up properly. I am usually suspicious of these. You can adjust your policy to lower settings at your own risk,(Tools, Internet options) but only if you completely trust the site. Once you leave, raise them back up. I have done this before with success. Try an alternate browser as well.

I use XP Home and this is what worked for me .Tools/Internet options/privacy/Web Site/Edit/
Type in web site address/Allow .I also changed Cookie handling by ovreriding auto/accepting first party cookies / third party cookies prompt.
This way I donot have to keep changing setting,but you well get warning for cookies and you can just hit block all or what ever you want to do.
