Can you access that site via other browsers like IE ?

Does the Google cache work:

thanks for replying, i appreciate the help.

no, i can't access the site with IE. not from this computer anyway 9and it's the only one i have). i haven't tried from a friends house yet.

the google cache did work, but when i click on a sub-page (eg. Forums) i get the same error.

i did read through the mozillazine, but i have tried all of that.

any other thoughts? thanks again.

Is that the only website that gives problems?

Do a malware check with a few malware scan programs. You need to use all programs because each detects different malware. Make sure that you update each program to get the latest version of the database.

yes, so far it is the only one i have found that this is happening too.

i have used Ad-Aware and Spybot, the first found nothing, the second didn't fix the issue. i was really hoping that there would be a quicker fix than downloading all of those, but i will start. thanks for the help.

well... don't ask me how or why, but without doing anything else it started working again.

i didn't have time to download all the malware services that you suggested last night, so i didn't do anything else, but now i can log on to the website again.

weird. i don't like ghosts in the machine.
