Topic Subject: connection to CBC
posted 08-21-04 12:38 ET (US)   

I made french translations for CBC C3 contest and since now more than 15 days, i can't to connect to CBC (forum and website).

All that i made to try to solve this problem is :

1/ Scandisk
2/ Defrag
3/ Deleted all my cookies
4/ Deleted all my internet temporary files
5/ Used Ad-Aware (at the first time, i had more than 200 suspect objects but now 0)
6/ Manual scan with antivirus, result, no virus founded
7/ I downloaded Mozilla firefox 0.9.3 and Netscape 7 and tried to reach CBC from them, no result.

My computer

XP - Mémory 512 ram - 2.2 Ghz - HD 160Go - Internet Explorer 6 - Internet connection 512k

It's ONLY with this adress that i have this problem, when i want to reach CBC, after 15/20 seconds, i have a page with the message, "the page doesn't exist" !
I also noticed that each time that in the adress there is "CBC" or "citybuildingcontest" i have this problem. On my website there is a link to download the CBC contest C3 save, same result "page not found". I tried from an other computer which has the same provider than me and with it, I succeeded to connect whithout problem.

If you need more informations, you ask.

if you have an assistance to bring to me, it will be more than the welcome

Just for you to test:
Try this link: (note it has a 's' more then the name you write in your post)
I've just been there so it works for me.

Have you tried checking the hosts file on your computer? The file does not have an extension. There is also a hosts.sam file which is a template for the real hosts file and must not be confused with the hosts file.

I can't connect to the link that you give.

About my hosts file. It's ok and it has not extension. (About this file, i have already asked on a technical forum if its content was right, and the answer was, yes).

I've just visited your site and none of the links to CBC on it gives me any problems.

Have you tried searching the registry on your computer if CBC or Citybuildingcontests are mentioned in there. If you find any I surgest you take a backup of the rigistry and the then deletes any keys concerning the CBC site. The backup is because what you delete in the registry is gone for ever, so be carefull.

Have you tried checking the Security tab in Internet Explorer, Classified websites. All sites written when you click the Websites button for the Classified Zone is blocked so you can not go there. Maybe CBC accidentally has been placed there.
Also if you have installed a popup blocker it might accidentally block for CBC.

I've tried pinging CBC but they have a firewall up for protection against hackers.
