America Online (AOL), MSN, Net-Zero, etc. Users

If your Internet Service Provider has a built-in browser, the following steps will assist you in viewing a website that you are problems viewing:

  • Connect to the internet as usual
  • Minimize your provider's browser (click the minus sign in the upper right corner of the screen)
  • Start Internet Explorer
  • Login

Pop-Up Blockers

When you request some information from a website the page will launch a new browser window to display helpful content.

If a pop-up-blocker is configured it can prevent content from being displayed properly. You may have to disable the pop-up-blocker temporarily while you are viewing a web page.

Firewalls

Personal firewalls such as those found within the Windows XP operating system could prevent content from displaying. If you are having trouble accessing content, you should check the personal firewall settings. Be sure to reset the firewall after you have logged off.

Corporate firewalls such as those found at banks or government agencies could prevent content from displaying. If your company has a firewall preventing you from accessing content, you would need to contact the System Administrator of your workplace to see if granting access to this content is a possibility.
