    Ok I can't view invisionfree.

    Have checked with many friends, all who seem to be able to get on invisionfree.

    Every other website works - well would seem to.

    So, I've tried:
    - Disabling all firewalls
    - Deleting cookies
    - Using alternative browsers
    - Rebooting modem
    - One day system restore

    Pinging the server -
    Software Settings
    Windows Vista Home Premium
    Mozilla Firefox
    Norton Anti-Virus
    Spybot S&D
    Ad-Aware



    INTERESTING UPDATE:
    Connecting to another unsecured internet connection in the neighbourhood I can get on invisionfree through that internet connection.

    Ergo I would presume it's a hardware/software fault with the modem/internet provider. Which is BT.

    using BT Home Hub

    Oh and asking one friend on IRC who's also using BT he also can not check.

    Sounds like an ISP block to me?

    Thanks for the help

    It could be your Anti Virus program only because no other programs cause something on the internet to not open, P.S also try turning on/off any proxies that you are either using.

    I have a friend in a similar situation, not with invisionfree but a large scale holiday website he advertises on. I've ran every check I can think of for him, the only connection we can find is that he is on AoL and others on that ISP have the same problems. I would suggest this is the same for you as you said it was similar for other BT users in your area.

    We tried tracking it down on his system using some complicated techniques I know of (found via google a few years back, never tried till then but they interested me so I bookmarked them) but they through up no answers. The author of those help pages suggested if they didn't work it was either, as you said, being blocked by the ISP or more likely some exchange server between your computer and theirs, probably some local exchange or something. All we've been able to do is contact the customer support of AoL which has so far been little use but I would suggest the same of BT, a company at least with better customer service reports in the past.

    Yeah I found that out already, but my problem was pre-fire.

    The problem has now been fixed by BT.

    However I found a solution.

    The solution for anyone experiencing a similar problem in the future, go through a proxy.

    (you can easily google for these)

    Anyway yeah, problem is now solved

    Yeah my friend on AoL used a proxy for a while though most strip JS away so he couldn't use some of the ad management features.
