Um I can get in and it has not been down that I know of. What browser are you using. Someone mentioned trouble with Aol.

Tried IE again, even Netscape and in case it was the firewall tried without that - no luck at all. Double checked the address and even clicked on the TM Central embedded link in some of the posts. No luck. Have gone to this site in the past with no problems. Ahhhhhhhhhhh Driving me nuts JT

I have been checking and everything seems to be ok with the site. Might try right clicking and look at the properties of IE and look at the connection tab. There used to be a time out setting but I dont see one in IE 6. What version of IE do you have?

This may not do anything since you already tried in Netscape also, but try dumping your cache. Right click and get the properties of IE and delete the contents of your temporary internet folders. I can't think of anything else to try.

Have tried it all and no luck. Even update IE to 5.5 whatever lol for Win ME. Won't work in IE, NS, or AOL. Giving up for now-going to a dinner tonight. Thanks - appreciated the help. JT

Hey Wolfman, do you use Aol as your connection to the internet. I have had ppl with aol say they have had trouble connecting. For the life of me I cannot figure out what could be causing it.

hmmmmmmm, download mozilla! www.mozilla.com
just make sure to get a stable version, the unstable ones are deadly fast, but usually, well, unstable!

Use Road Runner - figure parts of my operating system might be corrupted. Having major probs now with media players on my computer. PC Guru at work also had no idea what else might be causing this - had already all that he suggested - same things you have suggested as well Thanks for everyones' help JT

Remove your browser from add/remove Programs in your control panel and install a fresh version of the browser from Microsoft.
Sometimes just an upgrade won't do it you must get rid of what doesn't work and start from scratch.

Thats because you're looking in the wrong place. It's listed in the Add/Remove windows components panel.

windows i believe has many hidden files , in xp i just click on " show hidden files " . i use ie 6 which i think is called msn explorer , about 13 meg file . have you checked for a virus or trojan horse ??? a good online scan is www.housecall.antivirus.com/ . as mentioned earlier in the thread , might be network congestion , it's happened to me before , but when i go to other sites it's fine , leads me to think the site is timing out sometimes . maybe just update to ie 6 ????

BTW might check internet options settings in the browser , i can't load some pages if i have security set too high , cookies or java script or some such crap hehe . just for giggles , try the virus scan , doesn't take long .

The Windows Components is not a file its in the Control Panel, Under Add/Remove Programs. You'll see either a tab at the top for components or a button on the left side depending what Windows Version you have.
