Just this past week approximately 5 of our computer running Windows 2000
cannot load a heavyily used vendor web page. It just says "The page cannot
be displayed". I can ping the web page using the URL and ip address. Other
systems on the network can load the page.

I know a recent virus, zotob, has been affecting Windows 2000 systems, so I
downloaded a tool from Norton and Stringer from McAfee, but they come back
clean. It has to be a virus or spyware, but I run scans and come up wtih
nothing. This all happened about the same time.

Any ideas????

I am assuming that you can access some sites. Is this correct?

Yes that is true. I can access stuff like google or msn and other sites.
There are a hand full or sites that don't work.

Perhaps cookie-blocking is the problem? Some sites will not play if
cookies are blocked. Did the vendor change anything on the site?

No I dont believe it to be cookie blocking. Of the 5 having troubles, one I
set all the security settings to as low as they could go. I also added the
site to the trusted sites list. Still nothing.
