unable to address a specific website with Vista


I am running the Ultimate version of Vista. I have been trying to get to a website (dating) that I was able to 2 weeks ago without any problems. Also I have no problems when I go to the site from my wireless connected notebook on the same network.

The problem lies in the fact that an old boyfriend had access to my computer 2 weeks ago when I was not at home and he may have changed something which blocks me from going to this specific site on my normal machine.

I have just rest my modem/firewall to factory settings - 1 week ago. Parental control has not been set nor has the MS Vista firewall been altered at all.

Any ideas as how to solve this problem would be wonderful.

Hi, you could try this 'Hotfix' from Microsoft: Download details: Update for Windows Vista (KB933228) Which is for accessing certain types of webpage. If this one doesn't work, check the update section for further updates/Hotfixes as you may find something that applies. (you can probably access it using the link above. Hope you find this a help :)
