Please help, i have had the most *****py afternoon here cause all of a sudden i can not connect to any site other than secure sites like this one. I can't even open google search or yahoo. I have reinstalled my panda security software, i have disabled it, i have enabled everything i can think of at the advance settings of my internet at the control pannel, disabled firewall and set my security to the lowest possible level. I have done a complete updated virus scan and now i have no idea what to do next but hope to get it fixed for tommorow cause i can not trade without information.

If you are on telkom ADSL your monthly allocation of 1GB may be up (i.e only allowing you to view local content), in which case load additional adsl time.

It is quite difficult to see the problem, but the ADSL comment could be the answer, what is your limit, does other south african websites work, like www.sharenet.co.za or www.fin24.co.za? OST is south african so that would work on ADSL, international sites like www.cnbc.com or bloomberg.com that come from USA would have issues. Just check this and if that is not the case we can see if there is anything else... does your email work?

Do you use ADSL? i know some providers have a system that if one goes over the limit it blocks overseas sites, but i know our Telkom service provider doesnt do this to us, we can exceed our limit and still get out if the network is not under severe stress, just a bit slower, i do know other providers dont do this...
