Blocked website

I am trying to access the MoreThan car insurance website. When I try to go to click here on my PC (which runs Windows 2000) I get the message:

This is the template for the system busy page. This is the HTML version back

I have no trouble in accessing this page from my wife's PC that runs Windows ME.

I can't see any Internet settings on my PC that would block this website. If you have any ideas, I'd certainly welcome them.

Thanks

Just tried link cannot get page to load at all, 2MB B/B so i would say it is a tad busy...

I've tried accessing this site from my PC over a 2-day period and get the same message every time!

I gained access to it the first time I tried via my wife's Windows ME machine, so I suspect there is a setting on my PC blocking the access rather than the website itself. (Unless there is some way that the website will not work with Windows 2000 - which I doubt.)

It is a problem at their end, not yours.

same as SANTOS7, left it loading for ages, progress bar half way up then nothing (finally got Page not found message). i would say that its the site at fault, the fact your wifes pc can access it is maybe due to visiting it before and you are now viewing the cached pages (stored on the wifes pc).

if you are looking for car insurance, have you tried click here ...confused.com will search lots of different insurance companies for you, you just fill in your details once.

good luck

the site is up and running now

A case of LessThan rather than MoreThan?

On that performance, I hope you won't have to make a claim.

Thanks for the tip to visit confused.com Paperman27 - I did use this site to get the best insurance offer, which for my circumstances is MoreThan.

I just tried to access their site again from my PC and got the same error message. I then immediately tried to access it via my works log-in (remote access) and reached their website first time.

I've sent a message to their webmaster. It will be interesting to see what reply (if any) I get.
