website can't connect

Post by maestro319 » Wed Feb 09, 2011 8:39 am



Help!! Each time I use my favorites bar to go to Goldwingdocs.com I get a "Sorry, cannot connect...etc". page. When I type in this website I still get "can not connect" page.
I can't connect to this website!!! Why? What gives? Have I been banned from connecting or what? I can get here by a very long and roundabout way, but...??
And, when I finally DO connect I always have to "log in". Which is not a big hassle but I never had to do it each and everytime I connected or tried to post. Can anybody help me figure this out?
I have tried to re-register but I am told I am already registered, so...???

Look at your windows firewall settings.Goldwingdocs.com may be blocked.Also your computer may be set for public network instead of private.

Ok, but, being somewhat computer illiterate...how do I check the firewall settings? In other words, where do I go to find and check these? "My computer"?

You may also run the "Network Setup Wizard".Another possibility,If your computer has been on the Internet for several months,You may have a virus,malware,or hijacker.I maintain some 15 networked computer systems and even mine had a malware so embedded in it I had to do a full factory restore.It's not all that scary but you do get your computer back.All personal data is lost,so do a backup first.
