I use XP Pro and Zone Alarm Pro with AVG as anti virus. The latter two are on default settings.
I keep coming across web pages where I am informed that I am not authorised to view or similar messages. Is that anything to do with my settings?? I was recently looking via Google at Wills etc and came across this quite often. Even switching Zone Alarm off didn't help, I don't like to do that.
How do you get authorisation, i think one was the Saga website and a dowload using Acrobat, but have come across it may times not just on that one. That is why I wondered whether it was my settings on something or other. Strange things these puters.
"HTTP 403 Forbidden" This usually means that the server peeps have blocked the whole site. Usually for illegal/ inapropriate content that would render them liable to penalties under the laws of the country that the server is located.
I follow what Jak-1 has said but find it hard to understand why my local Parish Council site would fall into that catagory. Most of the sites I find unable to access are giving information etc so again unable to understand that the content is illegal etc.
This error means you’re trying to get into a Web site that’s password protected – or the Web server is blocking users from your domain. Some institutional sites only allow access to official users, or it may be a subscription-only site.
