Bizarre computer problem
The weirdest thing is happening this morning with my computer, I run an older Apple iMac. I booted it up and went to check my email which is yahoo mail. It wouldn't log onto yahoo. I tried another website and the same thing, no go. Clicked on this website and boom, came right up. I've tried a few others that I usually use daily. Google, Yahoo, Google News, nothing. But, a few others pop right up. Any ideas anyone on what might be going on? Help

RE: Bizarre computer problem
Could be the direct http link has changed......or could be that the yahoo server is down or busy...or a sign from a higher power that you needed to come here instead! Smile The email from the saudi prince offering you $36M for a few $$$$ in admin costs can wait. Smile

Or it could be that you didn't clear the memory cache on your PC and this site came up as it was used more recently... Smile

It's a mac, not a pc. Anyway, maybe you have an app issue like java. Anytime you're using an 'older machine', strange things can happen. Even to an apple. Maybe you got a bum recent update.

RE: Bizarre computer problem
I'd guess your ISP is having issues. Sounds like their routing is messed up.

RE: Bizarre computer problem
Meh, maybe the DDS updated, maybe a solar flare got you, maybe a virus, maybe a bum update, maybe your house router, maybe the ISP, maybe just your luck.

You want real answers? Provide more details! Error messages, detailed IP info. And of course, usernames and passwords. But you can PM them to me if you don't want to post them publicly. For a proper diagnosis, I'll need credit card and SSN information as well.

RE: Bizarre computer problem
What internet browser are using? Delete the cache, history, etc and reboot.

If not, see if you can reach the page with the IP instead of URL. I'll walk you thru it if you are inclined.

RE: Bizarre computer problem
3 days now and still the same problem. I don't think it's the internet provider or I wouldn't be able to access any sites. Using Safari 5.1.10. Very odd that some sites load and others not. Not sure how I'd do that Bibs.

RE: Bizarre computer problem
It looks like you are having DNS issues. Check and see if there is an upgrade for your browser. To confirm this is the issue open a command prompt. Type nslookup url. The return should give you the ip address. Type the IP into your browser, if it brings up the page you've found the issue. Call you ISP and have them refresh their cache.

Edit: Removed data

C:\Users\torrey>nslookup yahoo.com
Server: google-public-dns-a.google.com
Address: 8.8.8.8

Non-authoritative answer:
Name: yahoo.com
Addresses: XXXX:XXXX:XX:XXX::XX
XXXX:XXXX:X:XXX::X:XXXX
XXXX:XXXX:XX:XXX::XX
XX.XXX.XXX.XXX
XXX.XXX.XX.XX
XX.XXX.XXX.XX

Unless you altered the data, based on that I'd know exactly where you live silly girl!

Sadly there are still many dark web trolls around. Sad
